This weekend was our guild’s annual quilt retreat in Frontenac, MN. We all arrived on Friday afternoon, and stayed until Sunday- morning for some, afternoon for others. Again, I am reminded what a great group of people I know, and how much fun it is for us to be together with lots of unstructured time for sewing, eating, and being together in a great place. I have a lot of pictures and stories I could tell from this trip, so I am going to spread them out in more than one post.
When I first met Deb, her voice seemed quiet (compared to my loud one), and a bit reserved. I am pleased to say that her work is not. 🙂
Deb spent a lot of the weekend working on a baby quilt. I did not get the details as to whom it was for (perhaps a relative?), but I will beg her for details when I next see her, so I can keep my readers up to date. (Or maybe you can inform me????)
Here’s a photo I took early on in the retreat, possibly on Saturday morning.
After a few hours elapsed, we now can see Deb’s blocks, along with a shot of the pattern in a magazine. I’m sorry, I don’t have a citation for you. (Can you help here, dear readers?)
I think the name of the pattern is Baby’s Breath, but I could be wrong. If you know of my phobia of complicated block patterns and my fear of bias growth, you’re certain that this is a quilt I’ll admire from a distance, and it is VERY unlikely to ever grace the pages of this blog as one I will make.
After another undetermined lapse of time, we see Deb’s blocks have been arranged in a group. I’m not positive this is the final arrangement.
Here is Deb, with her completed quilt top. I think the two slim borders resemble a mat when a picture is framed. This photo was taken around 1:30 on Sunday afternoon. Great work, Deb! I hope you had as much fun this weekend as I did.
