Fall Quilt Retreat Is In The Books

I rolled up the driveway about 1pm after dropping Shirley and Janet at their homes—I am exhausted!  The retreat started on Wednesday at Medicine Flower Lodge in Red Lodge, MT and that extra day (we usually start retreat on Thursday) was marvelous!!  I finished lots of projects—and am even caught up on my Winter Solstice block of the month project!!

IMG_1785A sweet little Christmas table runner—the pattern and fabric for this project was a birthday gift from my sister, Ann.

IMG_1784The salmon was created from fabric I purchased on our Alaska trip.  I love how it turned out!

IMG_1788Shirley’s red work—isn’t it precious!!


IMG_1794Ladies hard at work!

IMG_1799Mary F. created this masterpiece, the flower blocks are hand appliqued. 

IMG_1802Gay’s cute little Halloween project, she isn’t finished, the boots are decorated with lots more bling!

IMG_1808We laugh a lot at these retreats!

IMG_1815Jeane was busy this past winter—I love this fall penny rug and this precious little winter quilt came home with me for quilting—think Jeane would notice if it didn’t come home??


IMG_1818You’ve seen this one before, Donna’s great-grandmother made the Dresden plate blocks, Donna added the sashing and scalloped borders—I quilted it this summer.

IMG_1821Gay recently inherited some antique quilt tops—I loved this one—anyone out there know the pattern??

IMG_1833This one also came home with me for quilting—think I could keep it too, Jane??IMG_1838Mary F.’s sweet baby quilt.

IMG_1840Donna’s little fall table topper.

Our quilt retreat group is just the best and the location for the retreat can’t be beat! 

I am off to Billings tonight—spending the night as I have an early flight in the morning to Wisconsin.  Will be back Wednesday night—may or may not blog—we will see.  I’ve been offered a job—YIKES—a JOB!!!  I am attending the company national sales meeting and meeting the people with whom I would be working—haven’t made up my mind whether or not to take the job! 

The cowboy and little Emmi are all alone again and not happy about it!
