TMQG Retreat Insomniac

OMG!! I may finally be recovered from the amazingness that was the retreat this weekend. We ate to much, laughed a lot, drank a little, shopped and of course quilted. I defiantly feel closer to these ladies than before the trip and eagerly look forward to the next time Lee says lets go up home -- cause I am so in. 
All packed and ready to go -- yes quilting stuff and projects is in the larger one. 

Teri and I (along with her husband as chauffeur) headed west Friday morning and hit up some quilt shops along the way -- here is some of the fabric goodness that I proquired along the way. 
This set is going to be a wonky stars quilt -- adorable right.

After much debate and planning and a blog post last week I decided to take most of the projects I posted about. And it's a good thing because my pal insomnia showed up so there was a great deal of progress made and some seam ripping involved. 
bible blocks caught up (again) 
3 charity quilts bound
Unwind quilt top completed 
and promptly claimed by Mack
scrappy swoon (mostly) put together -- I forgot the fabric for the center at home. (the source of much of the seam ripping) 
backing for little fish quilt
and basted -- ready to quilt ASAP. 
started name tags for a guild member and her daughter 
started cutting blocks for Lazy Sunday. 

Such a fun time and now many more UFO's to add to the pile but at least many are close to being finished. 


  1. That bug jar fabric is just so cute. Looks like you really accomplished a lot on your retreat.

  2. So glad you had a good, productive time. And so sorry I couldn't go!

  3. Whew, I got tired again reading your post, LOL! I covet that sewing machine fabric!! I dunno know why I didn't get a bit, d'oh! I love the pic of Mack with your quilt. I missed it when you took it... I guess that was the last leg of my marathon pin and sew. :P I'm with you on being ready for the next one. It was a great time!

  4. oh my gosh, you have so many fantastic projects going on! I absolutely LOVE your unwind quilt. It is too cool!

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

  5. Love the aqua fabric bundle and I so need to know more about your unwind quilt. It would be the perfect way to use up a bunch of scraps.

  6. Way to go!! I would probably have the same problem if I went on a retreat! I think the picture of your doggie on the quilt was great, they do seem to love to claim things!

  7. It was such a great time!! I'm exhausted just reading it;)
