Fall Quilt Retreat Day 1

Shirley and I left home at the very early hour of 7:15am but it was OK, we were on a mission—our fall quilt retreat.  Stopped for coffee in Big Timber and headed to Absarokee, Montana home of the Cloud Nine Quilt Shop.  Shirley needed flannel fabric for a quilt and I needed not a thing but a smaller than usual amount of fabric jumped in my bag before I could get out of there!

Off to our usual restaurant, Cafe Regis, for breakfast/brunch.  I had some wonderful cornmeal pancakes and bacon.  A delicious meal! 

Off to the Washoe Quilt Shop before heading to Medicine Flower Lodge and unloading.  Can you believe it takes just two people all this stuff for four days of quilting???IMG_2206

Some of us had projects almost completed and thus were able to hang finished projects on the wall by late afternoon:IMG_2212 Mary and her cute little winter quilt.  The pumpkin table runner is the one I started before leaving home and the other beautiful white pinwheel one belongs to Bette.  My photographs here in this fluorescent lighted room do not show the true colors.IMG_2207 We all have our stations set up, some of us are a little more neat than others, this is Gay’s little spot!!IMG_2211 and some of us are a little more frustrated than others:IMG_2209

Jeane is deciding never again to make a quilt with that many tiny pieces!

Dinner provided by the resort was spectacular as usual and we enjoyed some great wines brought by all.  Donna served us all chocolate wine before dinner—now I could make a dessert out of that stuff!

Off to quilt, back tomorrow!


  1. Nice to see you are having a great time. I admire your ability to quilt so great. Enjoy the rest of your stay.

  2. happy quilting!!!..have a great time!

  3. Chocolate wine? Now, that's a new one on me!

  4. Ohhh we were recently introduced us to the chocolate wine! Ymmmmmmmmm but it's so rich we can only sip a little at a time, like an after dinner liquor drink.
