Quilters Retreat


With the all the excitment of the end of the holidays and monkey making, I forot to report on our Quilting Weekend and Friendship Quilt swap over. We began last February with a centre block and 7 friends. Each 2 months we secretly swapped the quilts around and added a boarder on each one.

We didn't see our own quilt for the entire year, and at our weekend away, we had the unveiling of the quilts. It was very exciting. They were all so different, and special.

A lot of work went into these quilts and they are a special treasure for us to keep.
We had a lovely weekend of sewing and chatting and just being away from home.

We all worked on our own projects over the weekend and enjoyed having like minded friends to confer with.



I finished quilting my "Report Writing Quilt" that I made in November when I should have been doing the school reports.
