from Marta with Love

So long, farewell…

I’m off to a retreat with an awesome group of UBER talented ladies from the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild!  You think packing for a regular vacation is hard?  Trying choosing what to bring for a quilting retreat, and having this wonderful little rainbow to pick from:

Yeah, I know.  Way too hard to decide.  So I’m basically bringing everything (in true female fashion).  There’s a lot I’d like to accomplish this weekend, so I’m hoping to be held accountable through posting about it.  The last two guild meetings, I chatted the entire time and didn’t sew a thing!  If you know me that won’t surprise you.  Here are the things I’d like to get done during the retreat:

  • Kelly’s dresden block (for the guild bee)
  • Vicky’s star block (for my Modern Minx bee)
  • Melissa’s 9-patch block (for my friend and guild president who’s about to have a little guy)
  • Piecing all blocks for Caiden’s 1st birthday quilt (good friend Amiee’s adorable son)
  • Shhhhwoon blocks (I won’t try to explain what this means)

If I complete at least two thirds of this list, I’ll consider this weekend a success.  Either way it will be a blast.  Wish me luck!
