Retreat Fun With Friends

Our Quilt Guild hosted a two-day retreat on Friday and Saturday in nearby Cocoa for the first 20 members to sign up. I was able to sign up, as well as a few of my friends. It was a fun two days, and much sewing/quilting was accomplished. We arrived each day at 9am and sewed until 4pm. Morning goodies and a wonderful lunch each day was provided.

I worked on my Razzle Dazzle quilt which was already in progress, and managed to finish all the colored blocks and am halfway done with the alternate gray blocks.

The wonderfully colorful floral fabric with the gray background is earmarked for the outer border.  I'll have more pictures later as the quilt top progresses.  :o)

Here are some fun pics taken during the retreat.

Hope you get some quilty time in today!

Let's Talk Scraps

Hi.  My name is Suzy and I'm a scrapholic. 

I guess you can look at it a few different ways:  (1) I need an intervention. (2) I'd better get my butt sewing. (3) I'm one lucky quilter.  😋

It took me two whole days to sort, sift and organize my scraps. I really had to cram some of those scraps into the bins. As it was, I had to use two bins for the blues and three bins for the neutrals. Luckily, my dog is very well trained and doesn't bother with anything I leave laying around.

Scrappiness is happiness,
