2nd Saturday and a retreat

Posted on: February 25, 2009

Second Saturday is a technique day at my LQS. Our February project was a Hunter’s Star pillow. I only have one block done, but I think it’s lovely. What do you think?

This past weekend, 7 of us trekked out to Joshua, TX, for a stay at Batik’s Galore’s retreat house. Barbara, the owner, is lovely. Her store is stocked with so many beautiful batiks. The retreat house was perfect. I didn’t get as much done as I’d intended, but I am happy with what I did get done. In fact, I even got a surprise quilt top pieced…Diane brought my Sisterhood bin with her. With the help of a Bold Over Batik from BG, I did everything except put the border on. Here’s a few pictures from the weekend:

Oh, my heck! Every time I see this quilt, I love it more! Big thanks to all the Sisterhood ladies for such fabulous blocks.



Barbara said everyone took lots of pictures of her dogs (Molly and Gus – they are great dogs!) but never any of her. So, here’s Barbara.

The two quilts behind us were Diane’s creations. The left hand one is a kit/pattern she got at BG called “Dancing Diamonds”. The right hand one is from the book “Happy Hour”.
