A Fun Retreat!

We were at Over The Rainbow Lodge on Camano Island for almost a week. It’s a beautiful place to retreat! And, since we’re an established group, we’re booked in until 2030!!!! WOOHOO!!!

I think all 12 people that attended the retreat enjoyed themselves … lots and lots of sewing and laughter!

We took turns cooking supper and had fabulous gourmet meals!!! DELICIOUS!!!

As I was preparing this blog post, I realized that I didn’t get any pictures of the food, the snack counter (TONS!), or of the 12 people sewing in one room and having fun!

I didn’t get a picture of each of the projects that people were working on … there was a great variety and a LOT of creativity happening! Here’s a few pictures of what was happening:

Pillow cases, kits from quilts, jelly roll quilts, quilts using templates, hand sewn hexi quilt, tiny tiny pieces, 3 yard quilts, scrappy quilts, coordinated quilts …. so many different things happening!

I know someone is going to ask … the dog chart was found on Pinterest and Kandy used 5″ blocks to make the quilt.

What did I work on?

I attempted to quilt my Melodic Mystery, but it was difficult on a smaller machine, eventually I gave up. The Black & white photo is of an Island Batik catalogue quilt and the top is completed! The blocks for the X’s & O’s were completed and the top is almost done. I just need to add the border …

The Melodic Mystery is made with Kansas Troubles fabric. The other 2 quilts are Island Batik fabric. The X’s & O’s were cut with Accuquilt

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Wow, Gail! What a great group of quilting friends! Thanks for the dog quilt info. I was one that was wondering. Ha! Did you take your AccuQuilt cutter or were your Xs & Os already cut out for retreat?

  2. Do you live in WA? For some reason, I’ve always thought of you living far away. I’ve done a few retreats there–pre covid though 🙂

    • Hi Dorothy,
      No, I don’t live in WA. I live just over the border in Canada. It takes me about 10 minutes to drive to the border.
      We had to cancel our retreats because of Covid and border restrictions. It has been 4 years since some of us have seen each other! So the retreat was also a bit of a reunion as well! 🙂
