Retreat Recap Part 1

Sew Me STL was so much fun!

I have lots of unpacking and reorganizing and cleaning up to do today so here's just a couple of pics from STLMQG's retreat this past weekend....

I got the measurements from Judy and made her block. The problems were 1) extra charm squares in the kit; and 2) cutting directions describing the number of WOF strips and sub-cutting them, but not clear what corresponded with the charms and precut parts in the kit. Judy explained everything and I was able to put her block together, easy-peasy. This will become a cute low-volume baby quilt.

Marie's block was a little more complicated, but she had the colors all numbered to correspond with the directions, and had her sample block available for reference. Plus, she sat next to me. So helpful! This quilt is going to be a riot of color - I love it!

I'm happy to make blocks for my friends and help them move their projects along.

More later, I have to unpack and sort everything and edit photos.

  1. How nice of you to help a friend with blocks. It does speed up projects. I always enjoy a trip to St. Louis and fitting in a Cardinal baseball game.

  2. The blocks look great and I'm glad you had a wonderful time!

  3. Hmmm ... hiring, er, coercing friends to work for you ... what a concept! Cute blocks.
