This past weekend was my biannual retreat with friends at Stitchin' Tree Quilters Cottage. You might remember the Quilters of the Corn pictures from 2014 and 2015...we decided we needed an updated one!
My first project on this retreat was putting the binding and label on the Off the Beaten Path baby quilt. I have a bit more handwork on the back, but otherwise it's finished. I really like the way this fabric shows up the pattern. Since this is a baby quilt, it's slightly smaller than the original too.
Next up was making this Swag Bag by Square Rose for a class model. It's a fairly large bag with lots of room to carry stuff. I like teaching bag classes as well as quilting classes. Bags are fun to make and can you really have too many? I don't think so.
We play the Trader's Dice game on our retreats and our challenge each time is to make something using the "cuts" we played with last time. Last time we played with 3" squares, and I made this Boxy Bag out of mine. Always need another boxy bag.
I also started the working model for the Kids Bean Bag class. I need to make the lining, and it will be ready for the class. Forgot to take a picture of the fabrics for it.
