The quilt we each took up to work on.
Our accommodations.
Margie and me.
Margie and Lori. We mostly did lots of this.

Li'l old me, below.

But we also did lots of this. That's Harrison Ford in 'Sabrina'.
And LOTS of this.
OOPS! How did this picture get in here? Margie made me promise not to post this burnt cheese crisp. Sorry Margie...that's what happens when your priorities are messed up. Hee-hee!!
Making progress.
We all got to this point. Now we just have to make the yo-yo cherries and stems.
(See photo at the top).
My workspace.
I also got around to adding the small blue border around my basket quilt and started on the polka-dot borders.

And for the grand finale...we try to always make matching pillowcases for each retreat we go on. So this is what we came up with this time.

I thought I'd throw in this photo from another retreat two summers ago.

Sew cute! : )

Wow! What a fun time you've had this week and you accomplished so much! The cherry baby quilt is adorable (M.E. came to mind right away) but I really love your basket quilt. Can't wait to see it when it's finished and where you display it. The pillow cases are awesome-what a great touch. There is nothing as great as spending time with friends all doing the things they love!
Have a great week!

Oh, looks like a great time! Your quilts are amazing! And you must know I have a weekness for cherries...any baby in my family would have to go cold as I would so use that on the table!!! LOL!

Welcome back!

You were able to get so much done. Amazing. I can't tell you how I live for quilt retreats. It seems that it is one of the few times I get to sew. You look like you had lots of fun too. Thanks for sharing.

The quilts are beautiful and it looks like you had a fun time with friends. I want to learn how to quilt, but I'm scared for some crazy reason!

What a great get-away!!! Time away with friends, eating, watching movies, laughing and being creative--what could be better than that??? Your quilts are amazing--I love the basket quilt and what a fun idea with the matching pillow cases. Each time you use them it will be a remindar of your fun time with friends.
oh and I LOVE your shadow box in the previous post. You are so talented.

Oh my gosh... what a fun time.

MamaTina said...

What an excellent idea! I have yet to figure out how to complete large projects either for lack of space or interuptions of life. A sewing retreat sounds like an excellent idea!

Janelle said...

Your quilts are beautiful! Was your retreat in Northern Arizona? That location looks very familiar:)
