Retreat Results

Look! Here are the two tops I finished this weekend.
I bought this kit at Expo. The fabric line is called
Merry & Bright
and the pattern is Boxed Blessings.

Isn't this fabric fun?
Ribbon candy, peppermint stripes and red polka dots!
The pattern is quick and easy with clear instructions.
I can't wait to make another, maybe in fall colors?
Or wouldn't it be cute in 1930 reproduction prints?

Now just to get it quilted before Christmas!

The colors look washed out in the photo. But trust me.
The lavender & sweet baby print is perfect for the new room.

The pattern Dream Baby is a super easy 4 patch.

The border fabric makes the quilt! So sweet.

This is the backing fabric included with the kit. Paper doll clothes!

The weekend was such fun. The four other gals were a joy to be around.

We laughed so much! And the food was delicious.

Oh, and my Oak Leaves & Reel quilt needs one border sewn on to be finished!

Retreats are the greatest!

  1. I just found your blog through Quilting Bloggers. I love what you found at Expo. That Boxed Blessings quilt is vibrant. That Nifty Thrify Shop is wonderful. I've seen more blogs about that shop this week than any other.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
