I spent the past four days with three quilting friends sewing, laughing, and just having a relaxing time. The son of one of the ladies owns a summer cottage an hour away and likes that we use it in the off season. I made 33 more of the "made fabric' squares seen here, for a total of 48. At some point on the drive home, I realized that I made twice as many as necessary as there will be alternate blocks between the sawtooth star blocks. Oh well, they were fun to make. Tonight is guild meeting and we have Tricia Spitzmueller as our guest speaker. Tomorrow she will lead us in a workshop, "Quirky Quilts the Color Book Way."

Besides sewing, we put together a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle. Quilt themed, of course.


  1. sounds like you had a great weekend, how nice it would be to share some time with friends like you did. No photo of the squares you did though. The jigsaw looks great fun, much easier when a few are doing it together.

  2. It looks like you had a really nice location for your retreat. I need to get a travel case for my machine, because I think I have been missing a lot of fun!
