Cricut fun at the AQ retreat

The Adventurous Quilters enjoyed a weekend of sewing at the Columbiere retreat in Clarkston.

I used the time to play with the Cricut and cut out many designs and learned of the many shapes it can cut instantly. It calculates how many to cut out in a variety of sizes needed and cut some very intricut designs.So now I have many "appliques" cut out for the Michigan Invitaional cahllenge, my next project. I can also see many possiblities for text in future quilt projects.
