Well, this is vacation week, so I'm not around lots. Yesterday was a day at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Talk about being tired.

I was at a quilting retreat in Rockport this weekend and had a blast. I'm posting some photos from there. DD sent along Blue River (the hippo) to be with me so I wouldn't be lonely.

We all worked on the kit for the retreat and it was from the Fat Quarter Five Book. Look at all the differences.This is my green monster. LOL I decided to use my own fabrics and make it larger. So, I have double the blocks in this one. It fits the top of my King sized bed.

These two were from the same fabrics, two different patterns from the booklet.

I love this Christmas pattern from the same booklet. Isn't it beautiful?

Some folks finished the quilting and binding on their quilt and started working on the BOM

I was bored with the blocks and had to have a diversion, so I made my 6" Burger Queen blocks.

This is from the same kit as a couple of the ladies did, but a different book. I'm not sure which book it was.

I made Wanda a thread catcher from her leftovers. When Wanda finished her kit, she made this baby quilt of 3-D pinwheels. I think this is going to be a wonderful baby quilt.

I saw the hippo in the pic and just "knew" DD sent it- I remember the zebra in our room in PA-lol.
