Retreat Report, Part 1

I got back yesterday from a weekend of sewing with my quilt guild buddies. I was in charge of the retreat mystery block this time. I chose to do more of a "group project" block rather than a mystery.

They made a stack of scrappy half log cabin blocks for me.

There are 48 blocks here, enough for a good sized charity quilt for our local oncology department.

When I got home last night I put a few of the blocks up on my design to see how they look. The lighting isn't the best since it was night time, but you can get the idea.

There is another row of blocks but I ran out of energy. I think these are such fun blocks! I hope to get the quilt finished before our next guild meeting in two weeks.

I have more to show you from my retreat but will save that for another post.
