It's retreat week! Whoop! Whoop!
I've got just a few days before I'm heading to Lancaster County, PA for a retreat with my friends from Maryland. We always have a lot of fun. I haven't decided if I'm going to head out shopping with friends or spend the whole time sewing. I know I'll have a great time and I'll be exhausted when I get home.
I've been getting ready by cutting out projects. These kits are ready to become quilts. Do you think 6 is too many for a retreat from Thursday to Sunday? Most of them are small, easy quilt tops. Only one is lap quilt size, the others are smaller.
Here's one of the two friendship star quilts I quilted this weekend. At the top of the picture you can just see a point of a star on the first quilt I did. I loaded a wide back and quilted one after another. It went well.
This was on my goal list last week so you can see I got it done! Yea. In fact, I was so focused I only had one item that wasn't totally completed. Prepping the paper piecing designs I might work on at retreat was time consuming. It's mostly finished but I wanted to reverse some of the designs so that was taking time. I'll finish them all before I leave Thursday. Here's how I did with last weeks goals.

I'm not really listing much for this week because I'm mostly working on the projects I kitted up for retreat. My hope is to hopefully finish 4 of the tops and move 2 others along.

I'm linking with my normal Monday linky pages: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Main Crush Monday, Moving It Forward and What I Made Monday. I've been doing a poor job of remembering to come back to link up to all of the places I've listed. Hopefully, I'll remember tomorrow! Enjoy surfing the net using these linky parties.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
