Modern Quilt Club Retreat Makes

Now this showcase is a *little* overdue considering the retreat was early June but hey ho work, studies seems everything gets in the way. I haven’t even shown this properly on Instagram yet either!

For those that don’t know Modern Quilt Club retreat runs twice a year in a lovely hotel near Leeds. Originally started as Simply Solids but when Lisa and Justine decided to close the doors on that, Lisa took it on as part of her Modern Quilt Club umbrella.

It’s an amazing retreat- spa hotel with swimming, all the food you can want and of course 24/7 access to sew! With the occasional workshop thrown in. It runs from Friday lunchtime to mid/late afternoon on the sunday.

Well what did I do? I did prep a lot (for me) of projects before I went but Friday for some weird reason decided to carry on prepping my Double Wedding Ring project (big mistake as I mucked up some cutting placement). However this is what I did do on the weekend…

A sweet sewing machine cover to keep the dust off my machine. All the fabrics apart from the binding are from What Saysie Makes– doesn’t she have the most adorable fabric selection?

A weetravelpal made using some precious Particle Press scraps, glittery vinyl and essex linen. Really love this!

A zippered basket pouch- pattern by Aneela Hoey.

Cushions… cushions… cushions! A reading cushion for a nephew’s birthday (pattern by the Sewing Directory), then one for me and one for Matthew.

I’ll show off the swap makes next time. I’ve already booked onto the October retreat and can’t wait!
