2010 Pumpkin Gathering started last evening. After dinner we went back to the shop to "harvest" fabric for the quilts we're going to make today. This was a change as usually everyone chooses fabric earlier and has it cut before they come to the retreat. We just selected a focal fabric (like the pumpkin fabric in Pam's sample) and went from there. It's so much fun to see the thought process. Then we took it all to the retreat center and began cutting - it took no more than an hour. This morning they'll start sewing and I bet there'll be some tops finished by the end of the day.
