Summer Retreat

Usually four of us go on a summer quilting retreat but our youngest member couldn't make it this year. She was on a special vacation with her 11-year-old son. Although we missed her, we didn't feel sorry for her!

Sandy, Barb and I went to Memory Lane, one of our favorite places. And this time we met Blosom up close and personal.

Me, Barb, and Sandy with the famous Blosom.
We had great weather. Our work area was set up so we all looked out at the pond.

The pond - so serene.
It was very relaxing to eat out on the deck.

There was lots of visiting and sewing. We began projects, worked on other projects and even finished some things! 

Barb finished quilting this gorgeous quilt.

And she put the binding on this quilt.

Then she began appliquéing a couple of small hangings. 

Sandy made this pretty top.

And this one too.

I finished a couple of tops and worked on more.

I love orange!
My scrappy Trip Around the World will grow more.
My Disappearing Hour Glass in batik pastels.
We had a great time, as usual. And there was more but ...

some of what happens on retreat stays on retreat!


  1. Barb's quilt was really pretty! I love your circle & square quilt! And your Scrappy Trips is lovely. Sure looks like a nice place to relax and sew!

  2. What gorgeous quilts you all worked on! That disappearing hour glass really catches my attention! Looks like you all had a great time on retreat ... I've said it before but will say it again that you are so lucky to have some good quilty friends to retreat with.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful time! Lucky and the gals made some awesome quilts!

  4. Glad you had fun. I'm on vacation, but, somehow I managed to make 3 little blankets (despite not having any of my tools or machines with me).
