So a few weeks ago, I drove down from the UP to spend a girls weekend with some of my quilty BFFs. It was just what the doctor ordered. We were settled into our new home and my hubby started his new job. So a little downtime with friends was nice.
I pieced this top while staying with my in-laws during our moving transition period. I made this entirely from my stash and it felt wonderful to make something without buying anything. This is just a fun little quilt.
For the retreat I knew I wanted a quick project and to actually finish something. So I did the quilting and bound it. It was nice to get some pictures in the gorgeous snowy setting on the river.
We also made mug rugs to swap.
I used the mini spools pattern from Thimbleblossoms and added the heart. Another way to use up those precious this scraps.
