What I did at the retreat...

 Prepared binding for my most
recently quilted PhD #5, Jellyroll on Point...
Prepared binding for PhD #1, my Sunday Sampler, that I will quilt soon...
 Prepared a pieced backing for this PhD #4,
my Holly Jolly...
 I may quilt this at Carellan on Friday,
or perhaps PhD#1...

I made HST of different colors...
 ...and different colors of Flying Geese,
the No-Waste Method...
 I tried a sample of the Disappearing 4-Patch which,
Hazel brought to my attention...
From this....
 To this in 4 cuts... 
 Check out this Tutorial for it....

I prepared our group's March BOM...
 The one with the white center is for the group,
with the black center is  for me...

I didn't accomplish a whole lot,
but bits and pieces, which was good...

I also worked a bit on the Mystery Project that
I am designing for another CCC group project... Making the units, figuring out the fabric requirements, and writing up the instructions...
It all takes time to do...

I have to keep focused on my PhDs though,
and keep reminding myself that!!! lol!

Happy stitchin'!!
Myra

Added note:
This was a scheduled post prepared Wednesday...
Sorry I am not getting my visits in...
Will when I feel better...

I really like the links you provide for the different methods you've used. I always thought the no waste flying geese method was complicated. When I checked out your link I finally "got it". Thanks.

Wow you were busy at the retreat ,did you get time to sleep .Have you ever used polar fleece as a quilt backing ? I'm doing one now and I love it ,much warmer then batting and cotton backing at half the price .
