RETREAT!!! Another word for fun, laughter, sewing and too much eating

 Myrna, who works at a fabric store, (could there be any better job???) brought this 9 Patch Quilt to share.  A simple pattern made a very stunning quilt.
 Kathi, has been working on this stunning applique quilt for quite some time.  I should have taken a close up so you could see all the perfect circles.  
 Studious sewers just getting started.
 Myrna and Nancy sharing ideas.

 Some people bring gifts to share.

 Kathi getting set up.  Can you see that cute little snail pin cushion next to her machine.
 Claudia, doing hand work.  
  Judy and Alice enjoying a good laugh.
 Judy's project.  At first I thought it was a Bulls eye Quilt but she has sewn each of these curved units individually to make this circle.  
 I love these rich fabrics in Alice's quilt.  
 Lori and Debbie in their little corner busy trimming and sewing.
 Another Nancy, who also works at a fabric store, busy on her project.
 Dixie came late but got right down to sewing.

Martha and Dee busy at work.
Suzanne, our hostess, binding a baby quilt.  Her home has the perfect bonus room above the garage.  Easily fits in 15 busy workers, tables, chairs, cutting mat, irons etc.  She says her husband doesn't mind when she has these retreats because he gets to eat lots of good leftover food.

Hopefully today I can put the last 3 rows on my quilt and show it tomorrow.  I'm loving it!

Happy Quilting!                        Lynda

Your retreats always look like so much fun, and so much beauty in one above-garage room!

Looks like lots of sewing was going on as well as sharing and having fun. I especially like your friend's applique centre for the "Love Entwined" quilt. I've got that bookmarked too, but don't know if I ever get to it.

It looks like you were all having lots of fun.
