Sweet Retreat - what will you be working on ?

Our Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild  will be hosting its' first annual Quilting Retreat from March 18th 'til 20th.  An entire weekend (Friday evening until Sunday afternoon) dedicated to quilting, sewing,  as well as a creative idea exchange. Of course all types of creative endeavors are welcome - scrap-booking, knitting, hand-sewing, but I plan to finish an entire quilt top!  Now yes, it would also be a good idea to bring along a 'WIP" (work in progress) and get it finished... yes it would..... Nah, I really want to work on something fresh and challenging!  How often will I have a full weekend without any meals to prepare, laundry to do or errands to run? So here's to drinking lots of coffee/tea; sewing in my PJs; hanging out with a fabulous group of creative women and getting very familiar with my sewing machine. 
I am still deciding which project to bring as it would be a good idea to have all fabrics ready (cut), bobbins filled and supplies packed!  Here are a few inspirations & links to look at...What will you be working on?
I just love this scrappy beauty! 1930's fabrics !!

Spotted on the blog Diary of a Quilter Click on the link for more pictures, pattern and tutorial.

Here is another fresh one - from Any Butler's website. Lots of free patterns available.

Can't remember where I first saw this, but I love this pattern. Anyone know its' name?
