Retreat Fun!

I got back from a fabulous retreat this afternoon.  Oh – what fun we had!  Lots of sewing got done!  Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of my projects in progress.  And, I’m sure that I missed a few of the projects that were being put together.

And approximately 4″ of snow fell … snowball snow … and for some reason, some of it ended up down my nightgown … but we weren’t really fighting!

This wall hanging was spectacular!  It included crayon (heat set), embroidery and piecing.

The expertise and talent at the retreat was amazing!

A few quilters “webbed” their quilts together.  It was the first time they had tried it.  I believe it won’t be their last time!

Another quilter did her first machine quilting and did an fantastic job!


There were a few guild mystery quilts put together.  Totally different jelly rolls were used, and the effect is somewhat similar (because they both had red in similar locations), and yet totally different!

And yes, the quilt on the right was getting fixed as I left!

Each one of the pictures has a story to tell.  But I’m tired and about to go to bed.  Enjoy the Show!

  2. Hi Gail. Reading your blog has inspired me to get some PHD projects done. They are not large but today I’ll be taking 3 placemats, 2 preemie quilts and 3 smaller quilts for tiny bundles to our guild meeting. Now to tackle some of the larger ones… Ringo Lake. Where was your retreat….lucky you!

    • Hi Diane, That’s fantastic! Isn’t it such a great feeling to get things completed? The retreat was organized by the BBQG guild and was at Edenvale on Bradner Road … close to Abby. I do feel lucky when I get to go to retreats! Happy Quilting!


  3. Hi Gail,
    It looks like everyone had fun and was very productive! I am sure you will be giving us an update on all of your finishes soon. I’ll bet there are a few more UFO finishes or at least much closer. ~smile~ Roseanne
