Follow the Yellow Brick Road...

Just call me Dorothy cause I am headed to the Land of OZ. 
In Ohio, that's Amish Country.   

Dorothy may think "there's no place like home" But I know better!
 I'm meeting up with a great group of quilting munchkins for a quilting retreat.   
A long weekend of whatever we want to do...quilt, eat, shop, eat, chat, get the picture.

The Tin man, Scarecrow and Lion may show up...
  in fabric form or perhaps in personalities of the fun quilters.

Auntie Em will just have to wait, cause my red ruby slippers 
are getting kicked off and I'm kickin back!  

The Great OZ, is Connie, the organizer of this retreat.  She can't hide behind any curtain cause we will find her and thank her endlessly for such a great time.  She does a wonderful job and makes a gift for everyone, provides discount coupons for the quilt shop, assigns us to our own 8 ft table to work on, organizes the food.

Toto is out of the basket and its filled with all these fun projects to work on.  Starting with this...
Wonky Cross Quilt Top with Comma Fabrics by Zen Chick for Moda

Up next is a toddler quilt right off my design wall.  The Swirly Girl Designs Pattern "Perfect 10" 
(uses 10 FQs) in Lecein Woodland Collection by Natalie Lymer

Next up, summertime FQs, pulled from my stash, to make my first Modern PLUS quilt, using Jeni Baker's pattern from her In Color Order blog.  Click here to for the pattern.

"Flip Side" is a fun pattern that looks like half a log cabin block.  
Using up lots of scraps in soft greens, blue and gray for a baby quilt.  

This stack of 2 1/2" strips is leftover fabric from a quilt I made a couple years ago. 
It's Michael Miller Metro Green.

And if the Christmas Spirit hits me I have "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" by Andover for a wonky log cabin. The pattern is in Sunday Morning Quilts book.    

If the wicked witch of the west thinks she can show up and try to ruin our fun... 
there's a house waiting to make a landing!  

 I will do a post to show you what Kwilty Pleasures ACTUALLY get the Land of OZ!
