Yep...that's our name! We had a contest to come up with a name during the day and then we voted on them. This one came out on top. A couple other ideas were Scrap Happy and Rip Stitch. :-)
What a wonderful day it was! I met quite a few new people, enjoyed some yummy food and got a little (waaay less than I thought I would) piecing done. Here are some pics of the day.
|Our venue - the foyer of a local church. It worked fabulously!|
|Working on a chevron quilt with Joel Dewberry fabric (3 people were working with this line!)|
|All the 9-patch blocks people brought for a charity quilt and a friend using the design wall.|
|A friend making her first "on her own" quilt|
Some of the projects...
|I love these blocks!|
|Pink /white/black Yellow Brick Road quilt|
|Ready to be basted!|
|Such yummy food!|
We played a couple of games to break up the day. A Quilter's Basket points game and we also did a Fat Quarter Swap in the afternoon. For the swap everyone brought a fat quarter along and we played a white elephant type of gift exchange, picking from the basket and stealing from each other.
We had 5 different sponsers that donated door prizes and fabric for the gift bags. I'll share that in a separate post along with the gift bags.
We'll definitely be doing this again!
Ha...I see someone I know! Looks like you had a great day, Suzanne.ReplyDelete
What a great day that must have been! And such a nice church foyer. I thought at first that it was in a nice hotel or something!ReplyDelete
bummer I had to skip out on it this year--are you going to plan one next year?ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the pics! It was such a fun day. Glad to have made it out, even with my sick girl.ReplyDelete
It looks so good, Suzanne! What a nice place for a Quilt Retreat.ReplyDelete
