|My essential tools.|
This past weekend was spent at my first quilting retreat - I loved the experience. My one regret, that I was unable to absorb of all the great information that was flying around the workroom.... the best thread; great quilting teachers; the project discussions..... it was phenomenal! But I was so determined to complete the blocks for my 'Basket Case" quilt pattern that I dare not leave my chair. Oh and it was humbling to see some of the talent! Such talent in that room! Quilting retreats are about more than just quilting! There were so many impromptu sewing demonstrations, tips, advice, more, more, more than I could have imagined! Wonderful.
But I tried to remember what my goal was, to complete a 'vintage' inspired quilt top, in a pattern that I loved, all the while trying to forgive myself for my sewing errors! See the picture of my inspiration below! Next retreat, I promise to make time to learn more!
|This pattern is called Basket Case from Cluck Cluck Sew.|
