Owners Carol and Rob Kroth made the Notre Dame quilting ministry members feel right at home in their B&B when we stayed there this weekend: tasty Amish food + peaceful locale = lots of sewing projects completed.
I knew in advance I needed to get working on my daughter's dorm quilt. She'll be heading off to college at the end of August, so I bypassed the shopping excursions to focus on her quilt. It's going to be all batiks, lots of blues, purples and reds, with a few yellows and pinks thrown in to add sparkle. I'm using the flip-flop block, and this will be my first attempt at curved piecing. I did manage to get about 1/3 of the blocks completed, pictures to come soon.
Some of the quilters brought projects out of hibernation to work on at the retreat. Here's a black and bright wallhanging down entirely in half-square triangles:
Others came to the retreat with a clear purpose, for instance, to make a quilt for a little boy's second birthday this month:
Or to work on a wedding quilt for a special friend....
