Awesome Retreat

It’s always a great time when one gets together with quilting friends.  I spent a week on Lummi Island at the home of a friend along with 3 other quilting buddies.  All I can do is smile when I think back on the retreat.  Here is a picture of our set-up at the dining room table.

Here are some of pictures of what the gals did:

Linda started off doing a one block wonder.  It’s amazing how the cutting/sewing changed the fabric into something beautiful!

Then she had this super cute jelly roll and made up the pattern as she went along.  It turned out to be very sweet!

Debi also worked on a jelly roll quilt – with lots of small pieces.  All of her points are perfect.  Pretty, pretty, pretty!!

Diane worked on this quilt – fabric with words and reproduction fabric.  A wonderful blend of modern and antique.

Then Diane finished her Smith Mountain Morning that she started at a Bonnie Hunter retreat in October.   Isn’t it absolutely beautiful?

I worked on making a top using my Grandma’s fabric.  It’s done, except for the borders!

Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of the wonderful sites of Lummi Island.  We went on a couple of short hikes, watched a sunset on the west side of the Island, visited the local market and an organic farm and we all practiced walking with poles!  All-in-all, it was a great time and many many thanks go to Linda for being the HOSTESS with the MOSTESS!! (Seriously, she spoilt us rotten!)

Happy Quilting,

Gail
