I have spent time precutting a few projects that I will be working on over the retreat weekend.
First up, "Banner Year" designed by Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop. A Canadian designer! My fave!
|"Banner Year" made by Adrienne Klenck of Seam Work. (with permission) It is so lovely in person. (and so is Adrienne!😊)|
Andrea is my friend and guildmate and she will be attending retreat so she will be nearby if I have any questions or problems. Check out her website to learn about her amazing quilting journey.
I will be doing something different for the background using Kona solids and for the banners I am using Alison Glass and Libs Elliott fabrics. If you follow me on Instagram I will probably be posting progress pics from retreat.
My second project that I will be sewing up at retreat is "The Sewing Machine Quilt" by Cheryl Arkison, another awesome Canadian designer.
I bought this pattern in Calgary when I visited last year. Cheryl will be spending time with my lovely little guild, MMQG, in the fall with a class and a trunk show. Can't wait!
Just need to sew the rows together and get it basted and quilted. This one is for me!
I will also be taking a few small items to sew and of course there will be some guild projects to work on so I think my weekend will be full.
Less than a week to wait for total quilty immersion!
What about you? Do you retreat?
