This weekend our guild had an in-city retreat.  We've done this a couple of times now and it's been a blast.  The husband of one of our members has allowed us to use one of the big meeting rooms at his workplace.  So we get a wonderful room with lots of natural light and tables.

This retreat, one of our members made us presents.  She made these wonderful seam rippers with little pouches.  She custom made the bags to suit each of our preferences and she really got our tastes.  If you've never used on of these before, they're amazing for separating your blocks when chain piecing.

I took advantage of the fact that we were in a room with lots of tables and brought a few quilts to baste.  Hopefully you'll be seeing them finished in the not too distant future.

I also worked on Dear Jane.  Here are the blocks that I finished.  I also managed to get a few more pieced that are just waiting for a little applique to complete them.

What lovely Dear Jane blocks! So will you be able to take a break from your hexigons to applique DJ blocks? :0)

I love your Jane blocks, I can't wait to see them all together. I have loved those colors since I first say them.
