Nebraska: Day 5!

Wednesday was day two of the retreat! We enjoyed a day of sewing and some more fun classes! I worked on laying out the tumbler.

We were given the special retreat die! It is an absolutely adorable sewing machine!! I love it:) I’m thinking cute quilt label…

Lunch was at the delicious Alotta Brownies. I had quiche that was amazing. And the caramel chocolate extravaganza (my term, not theirs;) was absolutely sinful!!

Then I decided to do a double wedding ring. I had done this with templates before, but it’s so much better with the AccuQuilt!! It’s still a work in progress:)

After dinner there was show and tell! There were LOTS of amazing quilts!! Bethany made these using a half-square triangle die. They’re gorgeous! I definitely see a Bethany quilt in my future!!

  1. I so love your blog. I’m living vicariously through you ( and quite jealous, esp of the Go-baby… :D ), but keep up the great pics. They tell a lovely story.

  2. I too love that DNA quilt — it’s been on my pinterest page for a while as something I wanted to complete. Glad your having a great time.

  3. Collage is the last straw! I am pea green with envy……Pin it? You need to TEACH the DNA quilt….you are getting too tired out there and aren’t thinking clearly.
