This past Friday and Saturday my small group, the Material Girls, was invited to a weekend retreat with the Loose Threads at the Beds and Threads retreat center at Threads of Time in Danville, IL. I can't go for the overnight fun, but I did go both days for lots of fun sewing. I loaded up my gear and projects to work on.
One of the projects of my local quilt guild is a mystery round robin. Instead of passing around the project, we are working on each step ourselves. We have had a great participation. A lot of people have reservations about having other people work on their projects, so this way that reservation was eliminated. There is to be another step, but I think that I am going stop at this point. There is a lot of opportunities for quilting that will enhance this piece!
I made this bag using jelly roll strips from StoneHenge fabrics.
The pattern is easy-peasy. I am going to make several others for our quilt guild's quilt show boutique.
We ended Saturday evening at O'Leary's in Danville where I enjoyed a delish crab cake sandwich, sweet potato fries, and a pint of Guiness! Brilliant!
