Off to the Quilt Retreat

Tomorrow is the start of our annual Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild Fall Quilt Retreat! About 14 of us (plus day passers) are meeting for three days to sew and hang out in Branchburg, NJ.

This was a busy week mainly because our guild meeting was on Tuesday. Before and after the meeting, there are always a lot of emails to go out and work to be done. Now I have to pack for three days away, and I'm bringing a ton of projects! I like to switch constantly during a retreat so I never get frustrated with what I'm sewing. As long as you are driving to a quilt retreat, this is a good idea (I would be limited if I were flying).

Last year's retreat (above) was a blast. I was working on my Postcards from Prague voile quilt a year ago, which is crazy (because I use it every day!). I wrote up a blog post for the guild blog if you'd like to read more about last year.

I have big plans to get things done this weekend, and take some great photos for QuiltCon submissions! I'll also be teaching a short class on making infinity scarves. You can see all the fun over on Instagram (@quiltyhabit) and on our hashtag (#cjmqg). I'll be back next week!

Also, The Wonky Press is scheduled to go out on Sunday even though I'll be away. I hope you enjoy this issue!


  1. Have fun at retreat!! My guild's retreat was a couple of weeks ago for 5 days of sewing, chatting, games and eating like queens!

  2. I hope the retreat was productive and a lot of fun. It looked like it from your Instagram photos! :)

  3. Yeah I was totally limited on what I could take since I was flying to my weekend retreat. I took Project #1 to work on mostly and Project #2 was to work on IF I came across problems with Project #1. Looks like you worked on tons of stuff at your retreat though!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
