Quilting Retreats 2019

Quilting retreats are very creative and very tiring all at the same time. For two weekends in November,  I was on quilting retreats. I used the time to figure out some of my long term UFOs and to work on some Christmas projects.



 I managed to finish up most of the borders on my daughter's quilt. I have one side left to do. The border fabric was bought at a Quilt Guild meeting. This will be a bed-sized quilt for my daughter and I will be thrilled when it is done. I am hoping that she will be able to come with me to the retreat next year and work on her own quilts.







I sewed all the blocks together for my Stolen Kisses quilt. I am pleased with how it turned out even if I found it frustrating at times.







At a quilt retreat a few years ago one of the quilters was making the Charm Star Quilt Pattern by Missouri Star Quilt Co. I really liked it and knew I had some charm packs at home. The fabric I have is Merry and Bright by Sandy Gervais. It had a lot of snowflakes in the fabric so I decided to make a snowflake in the place of the star. I found great Snowflake patterns from Canuck Quilter Designs. The instructions were very well written and very easy to follow. I do enjoy paper piecing and this one was great to do. I have to add on some borders and then it will be done. I have a few other wintery charm packs and I am thinking of redoing this quilt with a blue background this time for the snowflake.








This is a small table runner/centrepiece that I played around with. I tried out hexagons and looked at various patterns to come up with something. It still needs to be worked on.

I am looking forward to finishing these projects in 2020! Happy New Year!

Cute projects! I really like Stolen Kisses and the way the colors move diagonally across it. And the snowflake looks great surrounded by charm squares! That's a really versatile pattern :)
