Quilters' Retreat

This past weekend I went on a quilters' retreat.  Ten of us gathered at the Bluebird Lane Retreat Center which is only about 30 minutes from my house.  I had never been there before, but believe me, I will go back!  The place was wonderful!  All the food AND SNACKS were provided along with a very comfy place to sleep.  The spacious work area was great, too!  Each quilter had a 6 foot table with a rolling leather chair and an Ott light.  We didn't even have to take our own irons, ironing boards or cutting boards!

I finished my table runner and coasters while I was there.  Here they are on my table at home.

I also worked on these two UFO's.  The big one will be for my bed, but it has a ways to go.

Lovely quilts. Someday I would love to go on a retreat.

i haven't been on a retreat in YEARS, and when i did go on one, it was cross stitch (waaaay before i learned how to quilt) ... i just might have to book a weekend "away" for Melissa and me - even if we stay right here!

looks like you had a great time!!!
