|A stowaway? Cute!|
I'm going on a quilting retreat next weekend. After (finally) attending my very first meeting with the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild today, I'm super excited! Although I have absolutely no idea what to bring or what to work on. Any tips?
I'm thinking of taking a few projects so I can flit between them as I like. That way I don't get burnt out on one project. But I'd love to see some FINISHED results from this retreat.... I'm thinking of bringing one of the unfinished/hiding at the bottom of the closet projects out to be finished (it really just needs to be basted and quilted). I may work on two other quilts I'm in the middle of right now too. But I want to bring a bit of stash fabric in case I want to try out something new or do something on a whim... I don't have a lot of stash to go with though. Most of it's spoken for already. lol.
I did accidentally buy some fabric online last night. What can I say, it was about 1:30AM and it was calling to me. I actually compared prices for about an hour before deciding what and how much and from where.... hopefully sewmamasew gets that fabric to me quick! :) One of the projects that I could foresee myself finishing at this retreat includes some backing fabric I bought. Thanks Aunt Kathy for the Christmas fabric money (a check that I found in my wallet a week ago! lol).
Seriously though, any tips of what to bring / what not to forget? I'd really appreciate it!
