I started a cute Christmas Quilt called Angels Sing pattern by Judy Hansen in Quilting for Christmas 2011. I finished the quilt this month. I used Anne Bright design called "Holly" and "Snowflakes" Edge to Edge. I love Superior thread King Tut Cleopatra. Here are pictures of the quilt.

Last weekend, Paige and I went to the annual winter retreat in Newport for 3 days(Friday-Sunday). Greenbaum's Quilted Forest in Salem has the retreat every year. This was our 3rd retreat and we always come in on Thurs to enjoy the coast and to get set up. We had an ocean view room on the 3rd floor. The retreat has 76 quilters in a huge meeting room with ocean views working on their own projects. There were different demos given by teachers from the store during the 3 days. I worked on a quilt pattern by Karla Alexander called Savanna which uses one of her rulers with curves. I finished the quilt this week. Paige worked on a quilt pattern by Karla Alexander called Junk Jewelry. The weather was spectacular with sunny skies and warm temps. Saturday, they have a dinner for all the quilters. We are signed up for next year. Paige gives me an early B-Day gift by paying the deposit. Here are pictures of the retreat:
It has been 2 weeks that I haven't been able to post pictures on my blogs. I was able to write a post but not post pictures which was so frustrating. I had to go to Chrome Goggle as my default server and then draftblogger. I'm so happy to be able to post pictures of my RV Quilt now.

This is the 1st full week of the New Year 2014. I was able to complete 3 quilt tops when I went to see/help my brother and sister-in-law this past Nov in CA. I purchased fabric with tents and trailers on it this past fall. I made a lap quilt for the RV. It is a pattern called Sand and Sun in the McCalls Quick Quilts. I used Anne Bright Design called Luna and used Superior thread King Tut Cleopatra. I started quilting in Nov but finished it this week. Here are a few pictures of the RV Quilt.
