Every year I look forward to February when a group of wonderful women from our local area get together for a quilt retreat. We come together for 12 hours and have fun sewing, socializing, and eating! Here are just a few pictures of the ladies busy at work.
One of the highlights of the day is the door prizes. A huge thank you goes out to all our generous sponsors!
Another important part of the day is working on quilts for our local Pregnancy Care Centre. This year everyone brought a block in grey/pink and blue/pink and they will be combined into several baby quilts.
Here is just one of 4 quilts that were made out of the blocks from last year.
People also were encouraged to bring other projects to donate to the Pregnancy Care Centre. Here are just a few of the beautiful quilts that were donated!
I sewed up a quilt for the PCC out of a jelly roll that I won last year. I also used the thread that was in my door prize from 2 years ago to quilt it. This was my first time using such thick cotton thread, and even though it took a while to get the tension correct, I am very happy with the result.
I had an amazing time (a huge thank you to my mother in law for babysitting my 4 kids all day!) and got a lot done. I hope to show off my project in another post. I’m already looking foward to next year!
