Sewing Retreat

My friend Ann and I stole a few days away this weekend to Park City for some serious sewing time.  I brought up 8 projects - knowing I wouldn't get to them all, but nice to have some options.  I am happy to reports as of today I have completed 3 full quilts!  We still have a few hours to go tomorrow, so hopefully I can add one more into the mix.

Here are a few iphone picks of the completed quilts. 

First up is Patchwork Chevron quilt pattern from the Modabake shop.  The fabric is Rouenneries Deux by French General and I love this quilt.  Not a good picture I know, I'll post a better one later.  I do love the reds and greys in this line.  I do have to say, I didn't love how the pattern went together.  Very  hard to get all the square to line up once the half square triangles are made up, but the end game look of the quilt I love!

This is a turning twenty baseball quilt kit I bought a few years ago.  I got the blocks done this last week, and put the quilt together this weekend.  Fun, fast quilt!

This star - is the Carpenter Star pattern which I love, goes together really well and fast.  The picture distorts the colors a bit, but this is done out of red, light blue, navy blue, and tan.  By far my favorite quilt I did this weekend.  My goal is to get it quilted this week and binding on it so I can get it hanging up before the 4th!

It has been such a fun, fatting productive weekend.  Nice to get away from everything and focus on something fun just for me - but I have to say - can't wait to see my little ones tomorrow!
