I bought this kit at the last Long Beach show before they left. They are back now and this is the second year they’ve been back. But I think I bought this kit around 2013 or 2014. At some point soon after I stopped buying kit. I’ve been working my way through them but I still have a few left lying around.
I love how this quilt looks and I’m hoping to get a block done each month if I have the time. I’ve been so busy every weekend that it’s been hard to get my quilty goals done. But life is short.
Last weekend I was at a small retreat that I go to each year. It’s held at Orcutt, CA near Santa Maria. It’s about 2.5 hours north of me. It’s put together by a private group of ladies in my quilt guild and it’s by invitation only. They invite people as they need to to keep the numbers small and yet big enough to offset the cost. They actually plan two retreats- one in the spring and one in the late summer/ early fall. I usually can only make one. But this year there was only 6 of us with a bunch of last minute cancellations. It meant we each had to pay $75/ person. This was fine. So I got 4- 6’ tables to myself which was lovely. I was able to get a lot done!
