Well, we failed to get the gang together for our annual Shipshewanna Retreat. Vicki and I headed off alone last Friday. She discovered this wonderful B&B. We had an entire walkout basement to ourselves - this was the living room that we used to sew in. This picture was taken before we got down to work. We had a great time, but are always surprised by our small accomplishments. I made the blocks for Lori's Quilt-Along, and then worked on my Braid quilt (Bonnie's pattern). That's it! We spent the first day fabric shopping, and having the traditional hot pretzel at Jo Jo's - so yummy. I'm sure you quilters caught the antique quilt that was on the wall. Here is a better shot of it. Maybe I would have more to show for my time if I wasn't spending so much of it staring at this! The innkeeper shared that she purchased this at a local auction. It may be a partial quilt as this is the entire piece; it isn't folded. The quilting is by machine and is in simple, straight vertical lines. This is a great block, and so easy to piece. There may be one in my future!
