February ISE Retreat

It was another fun retreat.  Warning:  This is a picture heavy post.  

I think everyone (except Ellen) was pleased with all that was accomplished.  I know finished every item I intended to work on.

  1.  I was able to sew the binding on 4 quilts and get them ready to hand sew (or should I say ready for someone to hand sew)
  2. Make a backing for a quilt on the UFO list (February Goal)
  3. Make the setting triangles for a quilt 
  4. Sew the blocks together for a UFO quilt
  5. Work on the outside sashing on a UFO quilt
  6. Spend time with friends and enjoy their company.

 Tina was one of the first ones to earn the ripper frog award.

 Sue was working hard on her projects.  She finished a jelly roll race quilt out of the neutrals.
 All the Hunter Star quilts turned out great!  I love everyone's color choices.  Char lead the workshop using this ruler.  Everyone had accurate results doing it this way.
 This quilt is now ready for the backing to be pieced.  It took me a long time to get the blocks arranged how I wanted them.

 This youngster is making a doll quilt with some fabric she received as a gift.  I think she did a great job.

Nancy used her jelly flop from last month and made a sample for a class she was teaching.  I think it turned out really nice.  These were the bright blenders.
Ellen spent the weekend piecing this great quilt.  I don't know why she thought she could get it done in one day.  It looks lovely hanging on the design wall

I have plan for more design walls for the March retreat.  I think we have mastered the best arrangement for the tables.  

Thanks for another great retreat.

Way to go Teri. Looks like you had a great time. I'm headed to Indianapolis in two weeks to go on retreat with the Indie group from Shipshewana. Can't wait.

By the way, I nominated your blog for a Liebster award. Check out my post today to see what it's about.
