Fall Quilt Retreat Day 3

What a wonderful group of women and what beautiful work they do.  I’ll just post photos tonight:

Finished Projects Show and Tell projects

Gift exchange Mary P’s needle punch projects and our gift exchange—Jane is so excited to open those beautiful fall fabrics but her joy was short lived cause when it was my turn, I stole them! 

It has been a fabulous weekend—two of our members had to head home tonight due to prior commitments—we miss them--Janet is our inspiration—in October, 2008 at a quilt retreat at Camp on the Boulder, 45 miles of horrible road from medical care of any kind, Janet suffered a severe stroke.    In spite of the debilitating results of her stroke, Janet comes to these gatherings and sews, creating beautiful quilts.  She has a wonderful sense of humor and keeps us all laughing.  Janet hasn’t let life get her down--she is our inspiration! 

Tomorrow we all head home—it has been a wonderful weekend of quilting and companionship!


  1. Lucky you to have those connections with other creative women! :)

  2. Beautiful projects! What a fun weekend.

    I took quilting classes at Quilt in a Day here in San Marcos,and they had walls and walls full of gorgeous quilts. That's where I learned how to quilt. Eleanor Burns, the owner, filmed some of her TV shows there. She has quilting retreats that looked like sooooo much fun. Some of my classmates went to them and always came back with great stories.

    Reading your blog makes me want to quilt again. One of these days I'll post a photo of the small quilts I made (pieced). I also made rag quilts for all my grandkids. Katie loves the rag quilts to snuggle in.


  3. Looks like you had a great time Janna. If all goes as planned we will be seeing you and Michael on Thursday next week. I am getting pretty excited but also I am going to miss all of our family. I hope Michael is recovering well.

    Take Care
