Quilt Bliss, almost ready!

I am going to Quilt Bliss retreat in a few hours! I am almost ready, and think I have enough time to write this post. I am excited, I know a handful of girls, and hope to meet many more. 

I had anxiety of what to pack. What to work on. Make sure I have enough without over packing like I always do. I have narrowed it down to a jellyroll quilt. Not sure which. But I figured at least I won't have to cut up lots of fabric. I am not going to do anything too complicated, because I want to not use my brain much this weekend. :)


They are having a low volume fat eighth swap. And a layer cake 10" swap. These are mine. I will get a variety of 20 in return. 


There is a friendship swap too. I made this cute box pouch from a tutorial here. I am going to try to whip together an embroidery too because this seems not enough. The lining inside is that yellow ric rac. Hope she likes!


I am also going to work on a simple low volume 4" quilt. I will cut up from the low volume and text swaps to add to it. I have got a pretty cute pile going!

See you next week!

It was a shame I didn't get more of a chance to visit with you during Quilt Bliss, but I wanted to tell you that I enjoy following your blog, and would not have had the opportunity to have such a lovely weekend without you mentioning it on Quilt Story.
