Quilting Retreats

For the last two weekends I have been away at quilting retreats... The Stash Bash outside of Atlanta, GA and my local MQG retreat near Smithville, TX. I love both of these events! They are laid back (read: PJs all day and no makeup needed!) and full of good friends and good food.

 In addition to the sewing...

Finally a #thestashbash finish. Quilt top with Daydream by @katespain for @modafabrics
last minute project decision while fabric shopping at A Scarlet Thread

123:365 My first finish of the #hmqg retreat. Made with @jenniferpaganelli Circa fabrics.
Jennifer Paganelli Circa fabrics have been on my to-do list for a while

124:365 My second almost-finish of the #HMQG retreat. Just need to add a tiny strip between the two sections.
another last minute "let's throw a Jelly Roll in the bag" project.

...there was shopping...

114:365 Because I didn't bring enough with me to #thestashbash a new project is in order after a stop at A Scarlet Thread.
couldn't resist this combo at A Scarlet Thread

120:365 Some of it bought, some of it won, some of it gifted... Definitely stashed more than I used at #thestashbash Thanks @modafabrics @stashfabrics @artgalleryfabrics for helping me indulge last weekend! #sponsorlove
some of it bought, some of it won, some of it gifted

Can't start a trip to Deep Woods without a little fabric shopping.
no trip to Deep Woods is complete without a stop at my favorite small town quilt shops

...a little bit of ice hockey...

116:365 A little #thestashbash break to watch the last 2 minutes of the bruins game.

But the absolute best part of both weekends was spending time with some of my favorite people ever!
