I “moderate” a monthly Open Sew at Village Fabric Shop. It’s a great group of young women. Earlier this spring they decided to have a quilt retreat at Lake Norman and they invited me to join them.
So here they all are. Steph, Carrie, Fowler, Mindy, Jennifer and Laura. Kinda pretty there isn’t it?
Jennifer, our host, decided to do a little free motion quilting.
She ended up with this beautiful table runner.
Mindy was working on her “critters” block of the month.
Here’s Laura’s block of the month.
Fowler made some more log cabin blocks.
Pink background. 🙂
Steph decided to finish up her machine quilting on this beauty.
And Carrie? It’s a surprise for a sweet little boy. I’ll post pictures later. I’ll post this beautiful clamshell instead. It belongs to her.
I explained the rules of retreat. Basically you need good snacks…
and a great group of women. A year ago, they did not know each other.
Now they will be participating in a round robin. HAHAHA They have swapped their center blocks and they will pass later this month during their Open Sew. So much fun to watch them want to do their best!
They will swap blocks for the second round in just a few days. I’ll keep you posted…
