My own little retreat

I have gone on my own in home retreat. lol I do this every year on "Super Bowl" weekend so it is nothing new to the family. I cooked enough this week so there are a lot of left overs to be reheated. I have picked out the pattern, gotten the fabric ready and starting yesterday, I have locked myself in the sewing room and I am DND (Do Not Disturb) lol

This years project is from April's issuse of "American Patchwork and Quilting" magazine. The quilt is named, "Fly into Spring" designed by Eleanor Burns, of Quilt in a Day.

The whole quilt is cut out and step one is done on the flying geese. The freezer paper templates are cut out and ironed on to my fabrics, the flowers will take more then a weekend to make. There are 24 flowers, 69 leaves. With any luck, the geese blocks will be done today, and I can do the flowers and leaves while I sit and watch the super bowl. Have a wonderful weekend and I will keep you posted with photos.
