In my last post, I was off to a retreat. Now I'm back and although it's been a few days, I thought I'd better show you some of the things that I finished before I ship them off.
First there were five Christmas table runners that I started last September but didn't quite get finished in time for Christmas 2010. We've all been there, right? They were made with a Jelly Roll from a pattern by Tivoli Quilt Creations.
Then I made some little bags using up some Moda charm squares.
The pattern is from the Moda Bake Shop and can be found here. I used four different charm packs; Oasis, Summer Breeze, Antique Fair, and Collections for a Cause - Faith. The pouches took so few charms that I have plenty left over to make other items.
Oh and then there was the retreat block. When four of the blocks were put together and placed on point, they looked like this.
However, when several were placed on a design wall, look what happened.
The balance of the time was spent visiting and cajoling with fellow retreatees (is there such a word?). The retreat ended just in time to get organized for our Guild's first meeting of the 2011/2012 year.
Till the next time remember, Creative minds are rarely tidy.
