My local quilt guild retreat is just a week away, so naturally, although I’ve had months to prepare, I’m just getting my sewing for it done now. I can’t show you most of it, not yet anyway, in case my Secret Sister is lurking about! But I can show you the block I designed for the Block Lottery. Every participant was given the foundation patterns and some of the key fabric, so the block isn’t a secret this year. Everyone will be making a twelve-inch Pineapple block, adding their own bright tropical batik to create the cross, and two lucky winners will win 25 blocks. The effect of the finished blocks should be stunning!
I look forward to our annual Quilt Retreat every year. Three whole days of sewing, friendship, laughter, food and fun! Lots of planning and preparation leading up to it (especially this year as I am a committee member), and a day of exhaustion when it is all over, but so, so worth it! Do you go on Retreats with your quilting pals? What is your favourite part?
