I unloaded the blue aND orange wonky circle quilt I showed you in Mojave. It has double batting and I had done SIT'D around all the circles months ago and last two visits I knew I would not have enough time to finish what I wanted to do in the background. I do not want long periods of time between quilting because that is not good for free form stuff because I don't want to forget the ideas I get as I go. Hopefully it will be back on the machine in its new location soon and I can get back to it.

That's great news Ami!  I can hardly wait to see the quilts you finish - you always do such a beautiful job.

I sent you email a few weeks ago, but with you living in CO, I'm not sure you got it ???  Let me know if I should re-send it.

Hope you have recovered fully from your month long trip! Sounds like you were busy busy but had a memorable time!

I don't even know where to find the requirements for what we were supposed to do with the FQ swap we got. Can you clue me in?

to pick up the longarm and bring it back up to Colorado.

I know that will make you happy.  Great that you have space for it.

I will also be trying to pick up some business at some of the local guilds up in Colorado.......

Any of us would be glad to recommend your beautiful work.  I don't think picking up business should be a problem.

Thanks for your comments on my simple quilt tops.  I was happy to get them done w/o all my usual tools.

I know all of you retreaters have been waiting to see what we would like you to do with your "Ugly fat quarter"!  

2020(can you believe it) Retreat Challenge

FEATURE your fat quarter in an item you make that is "SOMETHING YOU PUT SOMETHING IN".

The maximum size ix 24x36, the size of your large cutting mat.  We want to be able to display them all.

Remember participation is voluntary as with all retreat activities.  (sounds like Pirate has already bowed out)  There will be prizes.

Let me know if you have questions.  Let your creativity soar!  You have almost a year to figure this out.  I'm sure you will outdo yourselves as you did this year for Misha's challenge.

Bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast (dry). The BRAT diet for diarrhea. Might be a little rough to get the banana or applesauce down Mandy.
