Marci Baker is a genius for figuring out how to do this using strip piecing methods! Plus I'm really happy to have it finished.
Today I want to do some quilting on the Twister quilt...and get things packed and ready to go on my retreat. I have some projects ready, but need to figure out a couple more, just in case. I would hate to run out of things to work on! We are leaving tomorrow. We do all of our own cooking, each of us signing on to make a meal and bring snacks, so I have some enchiladas to make today as well.
Lots of people ask me about the retreats I go on. We came up with this one night during a quilt class...talking about how much fun it would be to go on a retreat and then planning it. We found a bed and breakfast, Harrisdale Homestead, that we rent about an hour away, and there's plenty of room to set up to sew. We take over the place, cooking our own meals and sewing and chatting into the wee hours. We work on our own projects, though sometimes we plan ahead to make the same projects. It's just fun to get away from home and spend some quality quilting time with friends!
