Retreat Project #1, Midnight Blues

It's been two weeks ago that I left for the Jane Stickle retreat in Shipshewana. I finally have time to write about the various projects I worked on. I'm going to write about each project in a separate post, one post would be too long.

We're allowed in the sewing room at 3 pm Wednesday afternoon. It took a little while for me to get settled and organized but by 4 pm, I was ready to start sewing.


Project #1 was to sew the snowball blocks for Midnight Blues. I needed to make 161 snowballs, each has 4 corners so that means I sewed 644 flippy corners.

They were so boring to sew which means they were a good project to work on at a retreat.  Not much thinking was involved.

I sewed all the flippy corners and pressed them. Then I trimmed the blocks and cut the unneeded triangles off the back of the flippy corners.

I finally finished all the processes involved in making these blocks at midnight, Thursday evening.

I love your snowball blocks you made... is Midnight Blues a pattern or an idea of yours that will be a quilt? You got them done quickly in just a while over 24 hours. Good for you!
