Courthouse Quilters held their Fall retreat last week. We are fortunate to have found a Nazarene church camp and conference center that is perfect for our needs. We sew in one of the large meeting rooms on the ground floor, there's a kitchen attached with everything we need to prepare meals except a stove (crock pots and microwave instead), and we sleep in the motel-like rooms on the floor above.
There is WiFi there so I had plans to post daily updates. However, my tablet decided to forget how to find a network. So this will be a long catch-up post.
1. Bind Fire and Ice (a/k/a French Braid) - DONE!
2. Easy Street - Borders and back. - DONE, almost!
This is the sunrise that greeted us on Tuesday morning, portending the storms to come that evening.

3. Elegant Garden - Fix mitered border corner and make binding - DONE!
I managed to repair a mitered corner on Elegant Garden’s border and made the binding on Tuesday morning. Another half yard out.
4. Churn Dash - Cut setting triangles, assemble, apply borders - ALMOST DONE
From there I moved on to Churn Dash (which I am now calling Dots and Dashes). Silly Me thought it would be a quick project to rearrange a couple of blocks, cut the setting triangles and assemble the rows. Between cutting the first set of triangles too small and dealing with a directional fabric, much reverse sewing ensued. At 8 o’clock it went back into the box, lacking only borders. Nothing to count.

5. Twisted Sister - Audition sashing and borders, assemble if able - Oh, well
6. Kids' comfort quilts - Some progress
Most of Wednesday morning was spent throwing together a couple of comfort quilts for the guild out of fabrics from my stash (counted out last week). Blocks cut from panels were sashed.
The blue border fabric was being uncooperative -- probably needs washing -- and I didn't bring anything appropriate to border the second quilt, so those went back in the box.
