Last weekend I went with the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild to our retreat in Wisconsin. I had such a lovely time. There was lots of sewing, laughing, and just plain relaxing (for me at least!). The setting was gorgeous, as we were right on Lake Michigan with beautiful views. I went down to the beach one day just to breathe in the fresh air.
Unfortunately I forgot my camera, but a few of the other ladies did not, so you can read their posts here:

I'll be writing up some posts to showcase what I worked on. I'm glad I brought a variety of projects though. I was working on quilting a very large quilt and it got to be SO exhausting I needed a break. I needed to finish something quickly, and feel a sense of accomplishment. Some people think I accomplished a lot on the retreat. I'll let you decide:
pinafore for my daughter
zippered wetbag for a friend
quilted half of a full size quilt
pieced a quilt top (the party of four color variation here)
Pictures to come soon!
