The Best Weekend

My second quilting retreat was a total success!  Yesterday we were all quilting busy beavers for sure.  And we continued to eat and drink.  Our cooksOur cooks made absolutely certain no one went hungry.  They served a brunch/lunch each morning at 10am and supper/dinner at 5:30.  We dined on dishes such as chicken with wine and mushrooms, homemade peach cobbler, salmon stuffed with pesto, asparagus, blueberry crisp, breakfast enchiladas, and delicious soups and breads.  Just fabulous food!The food

After dinner last night we all quilted and quilted but began the drift toward our cabin and beds a little earlier than the night before—all this fun was starting to be exhausting!  When we woke this morning a surprise awaitedMorning view

Soon after breakfast/lunch everyone began to pack and gather up and just before noon we were headed toward Big Timber.  Jeane and Shirley had some pressing needs at the Washoe Quilt Shop and also at Cloud Nine—the local economy needed a little more stimulation!  While at Cloud Nine we ran into some of the quilting retreat gang who were also in the process of economy stimulation. 

It was one of the best weekends I have ever had, I enjoyed my friends and made new friends.  I was able to complete projects as was everyone else—the first Iron Maiden quilting retreat was a total success.  And we learned that quilters don’t iron, we press according to teacher Jane!  Below are some photos of our finished projects.

Thank you Mary F for putting together such a great retreat.

One little dog and one husband were sure glad to see me this afternoon and it is good to be home.

  1. Beautiful work! I'm so impressed everyone did so much just over a weekend! I noticed the misplaced blocks before I even read that was your quilt, lol. The phrase, "rather late" probably explains it. I know how excited Emmi must have been when you got home, as well as Michael. Glad you had such a successful time.
