My Big Retreat Project!

Mom and I collected these Loralie Designs fabrics for the past couple years. We planned to spend the Hunters Widow weekend making the quilts, but the blizzard waylaid our plans. We worked on them together this weekend. I was going to do blocks with the ladies in them and then blocks of plain fabric, but it was too busy and the sashing police (everyone who was there past 10:30 Sat. night) came and told me I needed a sashing. I hate sashing with a passion, so this was my least favorite option. I tried red, black, yellow, and purple and finally decided on this red fabric. It turned out really nicely and I'll use the big squares of fabric for the back. I was the very last person sewing at 4PM Sunday, but I got the borders on the quilt.

You did a great job on this quilt, and the sashing really does add to it!
