retreat top

We had a sleep in your own bed retreat yesterday and will have one today. My main project to work on was my ode to Joey quilt. I worked on piecing the rows and joining the rows. I plan on using it as a visual aid for Church class on Sunday. I made the words according to the color of the month for rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. It is a rectangle the wrong way, so, I need to figure out what I want to do for the top and bottom.

someone was taking pictures 

I have 3 quilts left to work on today while I play at quilting. The food was great as a pitch in. The company was fun and there was a free table. what's not to love.

  1. That is an amazing accomplishment! Looks like you were working hard!

  2. That came together well, Maggie. SEW glad to finally see what you were up to! :o))

  3. Wow! The letters are amazing! Love the colors, and the saying.

  4. Sounds like a fun retreat, good company, good food, and your own comfy bed at night!

  5. Oh my! I had a sleep-in-your-own-bed retreat last Friday & Saturday also! Love your biblical quilt. You did a fabulous job on the lettering and the colors are gorgeous! Great couple of days for sure.

  6. This is great. So frustrating when you have a great design and have to go back to the drawing board to add borders.

  7. I wondered what you were planning to say with all those letters, Maggie! What a great use of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!
