Retreat Report 2

I won a charm pack from Sandy over at Quilting for the Rest of Us. I used it to make this quilt using only stash fabric.

The pattern is from The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman.

I also used some of the 4" by 6" rectangles I cut to make three of these quilts for charity.

This is a really simple quilt to make and I piece them as Leaders and Enders. It is just 4" by 6" print rectangles and 4" solid squares.

Finally, I just must show you another quilt made by my friend Peg. After she saw my Fun quilt she bought the Word Play book. At the retreat she made Live, Laugh, Love.

I adore this quilt! I'm itching to make another word quilt. I'm just waiting for inspiration.

I love your quilt tops. Great job on those! You made them both while at your retreat?! That is wonderful! I love Peg's quilt, too. I was at the quilt shop the other day and looked at the word book. I almost bought it, but I had about $100 of stuff already, so I decided to wait a bit. But I think I'm going to have to get it, because you're making me want it so bad! Looks like you really had fun!

Love to see the results of a give-away! Great way to use your winnings. And what a productive retreat--I'm impressed!
