Prairie Star Fall Retreat

It was another great retreat at Prairie Star Lodge. This one was hosted by Cassie of Lucky 2B Quilting. There were old friends - Cassie, Polly, Mary, Marilyn, and there were new friends - Betsy, Robin and Shawn. The eight of us had a great time and even watched the Chicago Cubs playing in the World Series.

This time I'm just showing projects. Some of the pictures aren't great - I was more interested in sewing and visiting!

I went with eleven donation quilts cut - all part of my clean-out-this-stash project. I had done a little sewing on a few. I finished all eleven tops! I even had a little time to sew some half square triangles from my peck of triangles.

As for my clean-out-this-stash project, I need to spend some time with my piles of fabric. I'm sure those piles will tell me what to make next. I just need to listen ...


  1. Wow...great job and so many tops made. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lots of great projects everyone was working on, but, I really like those batik blocks.
