Quilt Retreat

I spent the last weekend at a quilt retreat that a few members of my local guild organized. We went to Aidlingen, just outside of the Schwarzwald, rented a guest ouse and sewed for two and a half days... So much fun!

I was able to complete a baby quilt for a friend (picture will follow) and to make the blocks for a simple, yet very effective quilt:

 I had bought three Jelly Rolls and made four blocks of each color.
 At the beginning of this week then, I started to play with the layout...
 Naturally, my quilting consultant, Bootsy, took the project under close inspection...
and this will be the center layout. I am still contemplating ideas for the border...
