Retreat Pictures

I was on a sewing retreat this past weekend and had a wonderful time. Here are a couple of pictures of our sewing space. By the time I remembered to take these pictures, we'd already been here two days so we'd made ourselves comfortable, in other words, we'd made a mess. :-)
Here's where we did our cutting.
I feel like I was pretty productive. Here's half of the 10-Minute Quilt Block quilt. I couldn't get a good picture of the entire so I folded it in half and hung it on my new design wall.
I found border fabric for my latest heart quilt and I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
Here's Simple Gifts that was started in a class a long time ago and even had the side borders added. I didn't know why it had been put aside until I got into it and realized that it wasn't squared up properly AND I didn't have enough fabric for the top and bottom borders. I played around, removed the side borders, squared up the quilt and resized the borders. (Don't you just love it when you work on an old project? I'm always amazed at how much I've learned over the years.)
And finally, I worked on my Tumbler quilt. This is no where near completion, but I did add quite a few rows. I'm cutting the pieces manually, so that takes a while but I'm enjoying it. The best part about this quilt is it that so far no fabrics have been repeated. It's wonderful to look at the pieces and remember how you've used them before, where you got the fabric, etc. Kare and I spent at least half an hour doing just that late one evening, or should I say early one morning? (Notice the clock in picture below.)
