15 Minute Challenge & Sewing Retreat

Last weekend was my sewing retreat with 2 partners in crime.  We headed down the coast for some eating, drinking and sewing.  We had a ball and a much needed recharge before getting into the silly season.

I restricted myself to 3 projects, though I did end up stitching up a quilt with a layer cake that I just have to had on my last day.   There was a little progress on the borders and a couple of blocks of Green Tea & Beans finished as well as some cutting of Liberty Fabric for Sugar Plum.

We will be having a big bedroom switch around over the summer break, Maestro will be moving out to a detached room to the house which Mo currently uses as her art studio.  Mo will be moving into Maestro's bedroom and have her art studio in her old room.  The quilt is for Mo's new room.

I was a bit unsure if Mo would like her new quilt, she wants all her linen to be white, but she said the quilt was perfect, so although the girls on the retreat offered to find it a home if it wasn't liked its all systems go for quilting over my summer break.

So this is a round up for 2 weeks and I can safely say that it has been 14 out of 14.  The top border is starting to fill in I have been preping some of the bigger flowers which fill things easily but there are lots and lots of little flowers to go as well.

Sounds like you had an amazing time on retreat. Very fun quilt. Good luck with all the bedroom moves. Hopefully you can do a good decluttering with that effort too.
