Quilters Are Crazy Retreat - Day 3

Sunday morning started off bright and early I cut out the setting triangles for my Mocha Meringue quilt before anyone else got up. We had delicious breakfast burritos for brunch. My dad stopped by for a visit. I showed him all the bright/black/white blocks we made during the weekend.

Before everyone left we used the timer on my camera to take a group photo.

Emilee and Darlene, who had never met before found they had someone in common. Emilee's grandma and Darlene were best friends in high school. So all weekend they were BFF's and when we found the magnet at Peterson's it just had to come back with us.

Just before we left I finished the setting triangles on the Mocha Meringue quilt. I plan to add a couple more borders, but needed to get some of the gray first.

My shopping experience added a few more yards to the stash. I picked up these two pretty purple batiks.

One of my favorite door prizes was the fat quarter pack of Central Park.

I did bring a few fats home with me as well. I'm sure they'll get put to good use!

This is one of the black and white blocks we made. We were able to make 60 blocks and Jenn, Cindy, and Emilee each took home a set of 20 blocks.

The weekend was tons of fun and we really enjoyed sewing together. Next year we hope to do it again and have even more friends join us. I'm so excited to start planning!
