More Retreat Pictures

Hello Everyone,
Pictures of the retreat are starting to wind down.  When you gather 36 quilters together, you have a lot of finished quilts, and works in progress to show.
Penni made a beautiful quilt from my Madrigal pattern.

The fabric is from a Dutch manufacturer. Just look at all of the stripes on the flanges with the correct orientation.  That took some planning.

If I gave an award for Miss Congeniality, Fran would be the winner hands down!  We all love Fran's sense of humor, positive and sunny disposition, and her gentle spirit.  She keeps us all laughing.

My new Piney Woods Pillow pattern was one of the retreat projects.  I will try to get the pattern posted in my Etsy shop today.

Rhonda was having a barn raising at her workstation for Harvest of Hope.

More Heartfire blocks.

I spy Pat's Cute as a Button.

Someone gave Nancy all of the blocks and fabric to finish the quilt.  We loved it.

Mary Sue has been very busy!

Patty finished a cute table topper for Halloween.

Martha made an adorable table topper from her sister's scraps.  Nothing goes to waste in Martha's sewing room.

Several members from the Independence Hall Quilt Guild attended the retreat.  We are standing in front of our Scholarship quilt which will be raffled off at our quilt show in October.

We like to kick up our heels. 

So kick up your heels today and have a great day quilting.  I finished cleaning out the area in the garage around my long arm.  I can now see it, and she is ready to roll on Country Romance.  I'm just waiting for my thread to arrive from Superior.  In the meantime, I've been playing catch up on my email, Etsy and quilt shop orders, and pattern writing. In a nutshell, I'm resting up from the retreat and keeping busy at the same about half speed.

  3. (I made too many spelling errors in last comment so I deleted it - I will try again. Oh my gosh Lynn. Such gifted women and beautiful work. Seeing the Madrigal Quilt made me want to get busy on mine. All the quilts and women are beautiful. I am sure it was a fun positive experience for all.

  4. That looks like it was a fabulous retreat!
