Quilt Retreat So Fun!

Well I returned from my retreat at Oakhaven Resort Cabin 109 (see pics here) with my sweet mom and I had so much fun! I learned several things: I can hand quilt-but not extremely well (yet), I can machine quilt so-so, and the quilting ladies from First Baptist Concord are pretty awesome! I am looking forward to many more quilts and definitely more retreats! I finished my daisy quilt-except for whipstitching the binding. I am thinking about machine stitching it. They sent me to a website to learn an incredibly easy way to do binding and it showed her machine stitching everything but the corners. Here is her website. Also, if you have never used washable glue to hold your binding in place instead of pins, this shows you how. I learned that on the retreat too. Pretty amazing and easy! I will post some pics of my finished quilt soon. We made a couple of trips to the Cherry Pit and Iva's Machine Quilting and oh my! I just love fabric! I am so thankful my mom invited me to go because I ended up learning so much and have another sewing hobby that I love!
