I had 6 people sign up for my class and during the retreat I helped 3 other gals cut wool letters and scalloped circles so they could make them later. It was so fun to see what banners my students decided to make and what fabric they used to make them.
Shelly made the "SPRINGTIME" Banner, Kimberly made the "BLESSINGS" Banner, Amy and Mindy made "BIRTHDAY" Banners, and Mindy also made two more Banners with her daughters names on them. The Banners were all so CUTE!!!
I spent most of the morning finishing up the little gifts that I made for my students and setting up the classroom. I finished just in time for lunch. This is a picture of what I set out for each student. It consisted of a bag of treats, a pincushion ring I made for them, and a little "What-Not" Bag that I almost made for them. I had it all prepared so all they had to do was sew one part. I promise to show you the gifties once I take pictures of them.
Here are some of the banners I displayed.
Here's the banner I made for my sewing room.
The banner says the name of my blog.

I was pretty distracted during the retreat and didn't get pictures of the other banners even though I had every intention of doing so, but here's Shelley's "Spring Time" Banner. All the banners turned out really nice and I loved spending time with all of the ladies in my class. It's always a highlight of my time spent during the retreats. I'm looking forward to next year and should probably start thinking of something new to teach that everyone might like to make.
I'm interested. . .
If you had a CHOICE. . .
What would you CHOOSE to MAKE at a Quilt Retreat?
- Big Quilt?
- Little Quilt?
- Bag or Purse?
- Sewing Related Item?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be great! Thanks!!!
