quilt retreat

The weekend of the 3rd & 4th i attended a mystery quilt retreat. All we knew was fabric amounts to buy in 3 colours. When we arrived Saturday morning we were given our 1st sheet to start making blocks.
9 patches was the first sheet, 2nd sheet the flying geese then the retreat co-ordinator put her block on display to show us how the block went together.

Sunday the 3rd sheet was to make the square in a square & the 4th sheet the 3 triangle block. Then the co-ordinators block was again displayed to show us how it went together.
By leaving time i'd only managed 10 blocks of number 1 & 2 blocks of number 2. We've to make 18 of 1 & 17 of 2. Others had half a quilt put together of the 35 blocks. You can see when they are put together there is a secondary pattern.

This was a far a i got by 5 pm Sunday
The little pile on the right is block 1 pieces. The rest is for block 2. No borders were included. I've worked out my borders & have bought the extra fabric needed for them.

I didn't have a lot of sewjo last week. Mostly read but i did finish this gingie.
Happy Stitching,
