Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Retreat Project

In the past, regardless of the number of projects I take to retreat, I usually work on most of them.  That’s not the case this year.

My primary focus was my Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler Swap setting blocks.  It takes a lot longer to sew together 1 1/2″ squares than it does 2 1/2″ squares.  Or perhaps it is more accurate to say it takes more 1 1/2″ squares to cover the same space.

For the most part, I worked on these blocks from after supper Thursday night, all day Friday, most of Saturday (we did a shop run which took about 5 hours) and Sunday until dinner.  After dinner a group of us took over a ping-pong table and worked on the block arrangement.

I think I’m going to stare at this one for a while until I decide the blocks are in the right order.  I still have a border to add to another quilt.  I had time Sunday night, but the math wasn’t working for me and I don’t have any extra fabric if I make a mistake.

As for the rest of the projects — they stayed in my bag.  Note to self — if it doesn’t fit in the sewing machine case or accessory bag, it can’t go.
