Quilt Retreat

My quilt guild just completed our week long sewing retreat.  We only go during the day, from don't have to go all day or even every day for that matter but you are able to leave your machine and your projects set up all week so that when you come, all you have to do is sit, get busy and visit with some great ladies!!!

Here are a few photos of the retreat.  Our theme this year was "Quilting for the Soul"

Have to say something about the ladies in this quilt guild.  Look at us's hard to believe that we are all part of a small rural school district.  Either we work there, have worked there or have spouses that work there or have worked there.  This isn't a Town guild, even though a lot of these ladies belong to that guild as well.  This is just strictly ladies who have a love of our K-12 rural school and a love of quilting.

These ladies have the biggest hearts of anyone I know and it is a pleasure to be a part of these group.


Here are two of the projects I worked on while I was at retreat....doesn't look like I got much done but I did spend two of the days ripping three borders off a project I wasn't happy with.....not fun, I know!!!!  Also, I have two kids and a husband who wouldn't have been happy if I had went to the retreat everyday and stayed all day, so I had to pick and choose the days I went. 

 Christmas table runner....just the top.  The guild had this project last summer at our Christmas in July get together....I'm just now getting it finished.  lol   (my adorable daughter holding things up for me)

 This is the beginnings of my daughters quilt.....I think she is pretty happy with it so far.  And my husband said it was his favorite one so far I've done....that's saying a lot because normally he doesn't say much about my quilts.   lol
Thanks for stopping in.  Happy Friday to you!!!
