This Week (37) I…

…taught a modern quilting mid arm class and a doodle class.  I also prepared 7 projects to work on over the weekend get away to the Franciscan House in Kennebunk, ME.

 

The modern quilt class was fun!

The doodle class was amazing! 12 students left the class with doodles dancing in their thoughts!  I’m looking forward to the next class.  If you were there….practice, practice, practice!

 

Enough shouting….7 projects packed for a get away….what was I thinking?

I’ll tell you…I have along list of quilt still to quilt this year.  I have many projects started.  This get away is dedicated to finishing.

Project 1: Sew binding onto “redo” of August Doodle quilt.

I made some components, but ran out of time…..

I enjoyed Lobster soup, Autumn salad and Fruiti Tutti Martini at the Hurricane Restaurant.  I can highly recommend everything!.

I walked along the ocean edge and even put my feet into the cold water.

I attended Mass, went Knight’s Quilt shop and enjoyed seeing so many different project being created.

I highly recommend treating yourself to a quilting retreat at least once a year! I return home with lots of great memories and finished, or almost finished projects!

Thank you to Christine and Donna who organized the weekend and Lindell for driving and being a super roommate!

It was a great week!
