Quilt Retreat 2011

Our retreat is over for another year.  Boo.  They say there's a price for everything - including fun.  I'm paying for my wonderful last three days.  I'm exhausted, overfed, and have the mother of all backaches.  You can't believe how hard it is on your back to sew for that long with your machine at a different height than you're used to.  We even stack two chairs together for more height, but it still isn't enough.

We're in the auditorium at the center.  We each have a table to sew on, a couple tables for cutting, a couple for ironing, one for snacks, lots of floor space for laying blocks out, and a stage with movable walls to hang our finished tops or quilts on.

I panned the room left to right.

Three days of sewing, laughing, eating, and a little sleeping.  These are some of my closest and dearest friends.  This is our 6th retreat together, but I've known Katy, Jan,  and Joan for over 20 years.

 Reba is taunting me with sock monkey fabric.  I hate sock monkeys.  An explanation blog to follow.


  1. Well, it looks like it was a fabulous time for you all, in spite of the difficulty with the height of the tables/machines.

    Bet the jello shots went over really well. LOL.

  2. Ohhhh looks like you all had a great retreat. I sure missed being there this year!! Thanks for posting so many pics.
