I love quilt retreats!

I spent last weekend at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center in Mansfield, GA with ~30 ladies who share my love of quilting. It was called the Runaway Quilter's Retreat and was sponsored by Sweet Home Quilt Co. in Conyers, GA. Melissa Morrison is the owner of Sweet Home and she sure knows how to put on a party.

We had the option of making an Autumn mystery quilt or a Christmas mystery quil. I opt'd for the Christmas quilt and am quite pleased with the result. I have a 3" red border to add to the quilt top and it will be finished... maybe. I'm toying with the idea of an outer border of random Christmas fabrics to make it a little larger. We'll see how it goes.

I'm off to quilt guild this morning. We're making a Christmas quilt, too. This one will be raggy. Can't wait to spend time with fabric friends!
