Judy at hosted a retreat last weekend and it was fantastic.  Her readers are some serious quilters who like to have a good time.  And a good time we had!  We also got lots done.  I don't think I've ever been to a retreat where everyone got sooo much completed. 

I put the binding on my America the Beautiful quilt. (no picture, sorry!) but it is a UFO completely done!!!
I finished 2 more blocks in the General Wives BOM to catch me up to date.

I cut out and pieced this Brick Path quilt for Joy at A Joyful Soul Fabrics.  I still need to quilt it and bind it in time for her to display it in her booth at the Dallas Quilt Show in March.

Apparently I didn't take a picture of my blue and yellow string quilt.  This one has a portion of it in it.  I worked on my string quilt and got the first set of piano keys border on it.  I needed some green fabric for the next border and don't have any.  After the green border will be another set of wider piano keys border and that will make it a twin size quilt.  The house blocks above the string quilt are mine also.  I just laid it out and got opinions on what to use to sash it.  I think the concensus is a deep red tone on tone.  I also worked on my Winter Wonderland Quilt and it's on my design wall floor right now.
Did I mention we liked to have a good time?  I think after all I accomplished, we should celebrate a little.
