First Day at the CMQG Retreat

We have a wonderful space to sew here at the Siena Retreat Center hosted by the Dominican Sisters! This is a huge space for us, it includes a little kitchenette, and our own little lounge area looking out onto Lake Michigan. It's very c.1970 cozy, isn't it? Love it!

I've been working on my first project, piecing a free Amy Butler Hexagon quilt pattern with (mostly) Dick and Jane fabrics.

These are really large hexagon blocks, and I am almost finished stitching them all together. This afternoon I'll be laying out all the blocks to figure out the best layout before I stitch the blocks together, and I'll post another photo then!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend - I'm going back to keep quilting!

That looks like the most fun weekend in the world! LOVE the lounge furniture and those lovely long tables for spreading out all your gear - you must be having a fabulous time, lucky girl :^)
