Countdown to Cobble Court Quilt Retreat III

Time is getting closer for me to catch a plane to Hartford CT and drive down to Litchfield CT for a three day quilting retreat with a few of my friends. 

I have been busy this weekend preparing several projects that I will be taking with me.  We always bring pillow cases for Kathy to donate to a local woman's shelter.  We exchange fabric in some format that we are to bring back as a finished project (yeah, right).  Our exchange this year will be five inch charm squares.  We are to bring two sets of two different Christmas fabrics.

I have finished my pillowcases. Two of those below will be donated locally through the Pascagoula Just Needles Quilt Guild.

We will also have a block lottery again this year.  The pattern is a nine inch Maple Leaf with a light blue background.  These are my blocks.  I hope I win!!

In addition to the preparations for the retreat, I joined in on the Brown and Pink Swap at the Threads of Friendship Yahoo Group.  These blocks are also nine inch blocks.  I have completed the required number and plan to get them in the mail this week so I can mark that off of my list.

Putting the blocks together, made from the strip exchange at last year's retreat, still needs to be completed.  I will post  a picture of the top when I complete it.

Quilt Retreat projects include sewing on a baby quilt, so I have to get that cut out soon.

Have a wonderful week.
