Well this past weekend was the BMQG's annual quilt retreat weekend at the Franciscan Guest House in Kennebunk. I wasn't able to get away for the entire weekend, but my friend Samantha and I were able to take advantage of a "commuter pass" to come up for a long day of sewing and socializing with the ladies. It was fabulous and so much fun to get to see everyone's works in progress!

Actually my grand total was 7, but 5 was my total when I posted them up on the retreat design walls. Yeah...I was kind of disappointed.
Definitely not with how they came out though - I love the colors and fabrics together, and the feathers themselves are pretty big. I can see myself embracing some negative space with a quilt top totaling no more than 20-30 feathers.
And as an added bonus, I won a door prize as well! I ended up picking from a great pool of prizes collected by Aimee and chose a charm pack of Aneela Hoey's Posy line from Moda. Love it!
