Getting Ready for Retreat

We are going on RETREAT on Thursday! We have an optional project that I decided to do. I am going to make a queen-size quilt. My friend Mary and I decided to use the same fabrics but we are using different backgrounds. I have a black background and hers is white. Neither of them is a solid but has specks of other colors. I may have to repaint my bedroom to match this new quilt.

We chose 8 color families for our quilts. Each color has 5 shades so we are starting with 40 fat quarters. The quilt is made from 2 1/2 inch strips so here are all my baggies of strips cut. Each color has 5 baggies full of strips.

The retreat is for 3 days and hopefully I can get the blocks done, maybe even get the borders on it. Then I can add it to the stack of my own tops to be quilted. Actually, when the piecing is done, it is going to the top of the list of my quilts to be quilted. I thought when I got a longarm that I would finish a lot of my own quilts but that doesn't seem to work that way.
