Design Wall Monday September 24, 2012

I went to a guild retreat this weekend and this is what I made. I actually have more bits done than this, but this is what I have on the design wall right now. It is based on a free pattern from Judy Laquidara. If you are interested it is here.

Her quilt is much softer than this, so I'll have to find a new name...peaches and dreams is her name I'll have to add in some kind of read fruit... strawberries? .... apples? ....berries???

It took quite a bit longer than I expected to get even this much done. There are 30 of the large rectangular portions and 90 of the smaller. Then in the border are 178 more. I'm not ready to work on those yet.

Here is the room we sewed in. There were 47 of us at the retreat and about 40 of us were in this room. The retreat was held at Christ Haven Lodge in Florrisant CO, a very nice facility.

It was fun, I will go again if we have another one (I think we will.)

Retreats are such fun. I only have 3 more weeks to wait.

Nice job on the quilt... What about "Peach Melba" for a name? The raspberry sauce would explain the redder tones.

Your quilt is looking great, just like a fruit salad.

I love that pattern, it's going to be awesome. Yes, Apple Festival is a great name for it, since there's such a big variety of apples and colors. Lovely.
