Good Times on the TMQG Retreat

This past weekend was the Triad Modern Quilt Guild Retreat! We headed up to the mountains for quilting and fun. And I’m already looking forward to the next one!

We all finished LOTS of things; there’s nothing like a few days of dedicated sewing. I started out working on my mod red-white-blue quilt. I finished the top, but more on that later!

And I worked on my Acacia Lazy Sunday throw. It’s a gift for my SURMA bee. We are having “a very SURMA Christmas” gift exchange.

Katie finished this quilt top among MANY other things. It’s a Jaybird Quilts Lazy Angle pattern. It’s a charity quilt made from the guild stash.

And Annette worked on her Holiday Swoon! It went from being a full sized quilt to being a wall hanging:) Swoons are a lot of work, but they sure are gorgeous!!

A great time was has by all! The gals were really sweet to gift me a ton of Aurifil thread since I hosted! I cannot wait to dive in!! Thanks y’all! I’m pretty sure that teal will be perfect for quilting my Acacia quilt.

  1. If you have anymore room for one or two more on a retreat, please let me know. I am looking to meet new peeps and to get away!

  2. it was amazing — I’m thinking we should do it again around our birthdays how awesome would that be.

  3. So envious! I went on a quilt retreat twice and each time was so much fun. There’s nothing better. You all made such lovely quilts. Thanks for posting…

  4. It truly was a lot of fun! I’d be up for one, say quarterly, hehe! Actually, I would be grateful ANY time and I sure hope I am available when we go again. Thanks so much!
