I had a great time at the retreat, but it was over all to soon. I did get all the blocks made for the top I was working on. See the photo on the left. Today I've been working on putting the blocks together. I still have the borders to put on. The pattern is a Debbie Mumm pattern from a 1998 quilting magazine. Of course it called for a Debbie Mumm Santa panel and her fabrics. I used a SSI panel I found a year or so ago and fabric I had. So far I think it looks just as good as the one in the magazine.
On the right is a picture of some of the goodies we got at retreat. I think the tote bag is so cute.
