Mystery retreat weekend, packing.

Decisions, decisions, what do I take? This weekend I will be going on my first weekend retreat and I’m looking forward to it. The hard part is deciding what projects to take along with me to work on. Last week I marked my Idaho block and I’ve gotten this much of it done already, so it will be going along. Maybe I can get it finished and start the Illinois block, which I have marked and ready to start.


Being off work last week and taking a quick little road trip allowed me time to work on this in the car. My goal is to get one of these blocks done each month and this is block number four for this year, which means I’m ahead of schedule. Yay!

I have a quilt cut out and packed so hopefully I will have time to get some of these blocks made.



It’s made of flying geese and log cabins. I’m really wanting to get it made so that will be my top priority.

I have some of the what do quilters think panels that I bought several years ago and finally decided what to do with them to get them out of my stash. I’m going to use some of my purple fabrics and make the squares into star blocks so I cut out a few of the pieces for those blocks last night. I will take it along too, just in case I decide I’m tired of working on my other two projects. 


That’s what I have planned to take along so far. Whether or not I get anything done “who knows?” LOL!! 

I finally finished adding the last border into my scrappy quilt. 

That was a fast fun quilt to make! Now to get it quilted and bound. 

I couldn’t find anything in my stash that I liked for the border on my HST block quilt, so I took the top to my LQS and found a great fabric for the border.  


I still have to add both a light and a dark border before I add that outside border. Another top from my stash. Most of it anyway!!😃

Guess that’s it for now. Have a great day!
