Retreat was a real treat !!!

I am home from a lovely weekend with friends sewing, what more could a gal ask for on Mothers day?

Friday afternoon, set up, that can take a bit of sorting to fit 16 keen patchworkers into a hall, but we did it. So many SewEzi tables & Bernina sewing machines, extension cords, ironing boards ..............................and soooooo much fabric!!!!!

There seemed to be a theme of scrap quilts in the making.................................

The quilt on the left is what I pieced. Called Urban Birthday pattern by Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful. Using Jenny's unique Quick Curve Ruler.

This was my little nook of scrappiness! Another project I managed to work on as well.
 1.5" squares, some 'borrowing' went on, all for the purposes of scrappy variety.

We had a suitcase sale, not selling suitcases, but unwanted, pre loved patterns, kits, books & fabrics.

                                                        Look at our inspirational view!!!!

I received lovely Mothers Day texts from 3 of my kids, then when I got home look what my son made for me!!!!!

What a lovely end to a fabulous weekend!
