Annual Spring Quilt Retreat

This past weekend my quilt guild had our Spring retreat. Here's the big room where all 18 of us were busy cutting, designing & sewing.

This was my spot at retreat!

We had a great time and many great projects were completed.  Here's just a few that were finished!  Check them out!  

Aren't these quilts just awesome? 
I finished the Schnibbles Tagalong top, the blue Strip Twist top and the Pickety Sticks top at the retreat.  I was going to quilt the Tagalong today after work, but my right shoulder has been hurting today.  I went to see the ortho doctor a  week ago and he injected it with steroids... but it's not working yet... sigh.  I was hoping to get these three tops quilted in the next few days for my April CGQC goals, but it's not looking good.
However, thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for my Mother's blood clot.  She was put on blood thinners and was then released to go home on Saturday night.  WHEW!
Sewwwwwwww, what did you DO this weekend?


  1. Hello Polly,
    You don't know me but I found your site last week while checking out some quilting blogs. Your title grabbed my attention "Aunt Polly's Porch" because I too am a Polly who loves sewing and quilting. My handle is Pollythepatchworker. I do my blogging at You have a good week and I'll keep stopping by from time to time. God Bless you too Polly!
    From one Polly to another.
