What a great retreat! It was so wonderful to see so many quilting friends this past weekend. I suspect we all chatted way more than we normally do since a lot of us hadn't seen each other for years!
First here are 2 photos of my fabric purchases.The two bottom fabrics are the Ombre Fabrics I am using for my long cabin -- a lighter green and lighter pink. I have 51 blocks finished but I want to make it bigger than the pattern shows. I hope to get more made soon. The right hand side fabric will be the Glorified 9 Patch border. The original border just detracts from the quilt way too much. The other two fabrics were on sale and spoke to me. I have used up a lot of my oranges-yellows so that explains the taxi cab yellowish orange. Hum, it goes with the border so maybe the two fabrics will go into something else together. Black and white? Doesn't everyone need those colors together?

I may have put too much on my list. I'm ready for some down time this week.
I'm linking with the following linky parties:
To Do Tuesday
I'm leaving you with a touch of fall. The retreat was near Harrisonburg, VA. The leaves were just barely turning up there. I enjoyed seeing them, especially the little red leaf that had caught on my bumper.
