I’m still quilting the green elephant baby quilt … I somehow doubt if it will be done before I leave for a week’s retreat at a friend’s on Lummi Island. I still need to pack.
Packing for a retreat. It’s always a struggle and I usually end up taking much, too much stuff to work on. We won’t have a lot of space, so I won’t be taking my big machine that I quilt on. However, I will be taking my new featherweight and my featherweight table. I still need to decide which projects I will be working on. Although, I do have a few ideas …
- Grandma’s fabrics (4 lap-sized quilts in total) That should be enough, right? I’ll tell you about Grandma’s fabrics in a later post.
- Smith Mountain Morning (a quilt I started last fall in a class with Bonnie Hunter)
- a retreat bag … or at least the supplies for it. You can find the pattern and order the supplies for it here: http://emmalinebags.com
That should be enough. We don’t sew 24/7, but we should get a lot of quilting done.
What do you pack for retreats? I’d like to know what your essentials are!
Happy Quilting everyone!
