I went on a quilting retreat again put on by, "Quilts Bayou" out of Lake Charles, LA. The retreat was at Stone Creek Lodge in Kountze, TX. It is a wonderful place for a retreat. The sisters that own the lodge are just great. The food was delicious and the accomodations are wonderful. You eat on china plates and coffee in the morning is in china cups and saucers! Had a great time and these are my projects that I worked on there. "Blue Ribbon" by A Graceful Stitch is so pretty but man the half square triangles liked to have killed me, everyone was picking at me about the 196 triangles then Brenda came and told me she had over 200 so I didn't feel so bad. :) The other one is, "Wine Country" by Cozy Quilt Designs. I chose it because I wanted to use my jelly roll of, "Buttercup" by Fig Tree. Now I just need to finish. Story of my life.

I took this one out again I am determined to finish it. I've only had the kit since 2006! I have 33 blocks made and I need 57. This is a Bonnie Blues Quilts kit called, "My Old Kentucky Home." It is all set on point so I dread that. This one is going to my son Kyle who has been wondering when I will ever finish it.
