Pre-Retreat Pep Talk...
Dee Dee and I had our own private Zoom call just before the retreat was schedule to begin. We talked about what we hoped to accomplish during the day and I showed her how I had straightened up the Scrap Center, my regular "Zoom station"...
... Along with the (somewhat) decluttered Project Center area behind the sewing station:
The (Virtual) Quilt Retreat...
I started the morning by preparing binding for a client quilt:
With that done, I moved on to applying it to the back of the quilt:
After that was attached, I moved on to sewing pairs of rows for my niece's wedding quilt:
I enjoyed a brief intermission when Needleb stopped by to drop something off for Knittingsuek, who will drop by sometime this week:
Just before the retreat was scheduled to end...
... Our hostess took photos of the group, so I captured some shots, too...
... Believe me when I say, it wasn't any easier than it is for me to get a group shot for Quilt Bee:
This is my progress on the wedding quilt. Pairs of pairs of rows sewn:
I even managed to do some design work for DARK Neutral month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:
I was SEW surprised that there was opportunity to being assembly:
Thanks, Carole! I'm SEW glad that I saw your post offering sign-ups for this (virtual) quilt retreat. We all had a productive day:
Dee Dee and I met for a few minutes to decompress:
She shared the quilt that I missed a photo of when she finished it this morning:
Dee Dee sent me a photo of the quilt she completed shortly after the retreat ended:
Once we said goodbye, I went on to stitch the pieces of my latest project for the RSC:
I was SEW excited by the day's progress that I couldn't stop myself from finishing the sock that I've been knitting on for the last couple of weeks, as well:
All that remains is weaving in the ends. Not my favorite job!
