A Great February Quilting Retreat

I've just been to a great quilting retreat at Prairie Star Lodge. Cassie, the owner of Lucky 2B Quilting, organized the retreat and we were honored to have Mickey DePre join us.

Mickey entertained us with a trunk show Thursday night. Here's our group minus one who hadn't arrived yet.
Back: Sandy, Jeanne (me), Dianna, Barb, Mary, Marilynn, Sue, Cassie
Front: Krista, Mickey, Cathy
We sewed until it was time to head home for the Super Bowl game on Sunday. I don't have photos of everyone but here are a few.

and this fantastic upside down apple pie
There were some quilt top finishes - here are the ones I caught with photos.
Sandy's Rag Quilt - just needs the seams clipped
Barb's T-shirt Quilt
Marilynn's Goldfish Quilt
Sandy's Wisconsin Quilt - I think there are borders coming
Barb's Batik Quilt
Krista's Gift Quilt

I missed lots of photos but I did a lot of sewing. First is my Winter in the Pines quilt.

Next is a Baby Girl Quilt. The flower is freezer paper - I still need to decided colors and appliqué it onto the quilt.

And last is my Zig Zag Quilt. I love the colors.

It was a great retreat. I've been home a few days - I'm unpacked, I've done the laundry, I've shed a couple pounds, ... and I hope to get into my sewing room tomorrow.


  1. I love going to retreat. I saw Mickey's retreat posts on Facebook ... I didn't realize that someone else I knew was present. I attended a weekend retreat last summer where Mickey presented a mini workshop. She's a hoot.

  2. Looks like fun. Mickey will be at my large guild next week. She's been to my small guild twice now. She's nice, as is her hubby, who came with her to my little guild last time.
