Quilting Retreat 2010 Part 1

Last week saw eleven of us quilting, eating chocolate and having an absolute blast! We were at Wiawaka Holiday House, on the east side of Lake George. House of Trix, my classroom, is right on the water and one can wade into the lake from the porch!

Here are Sharon, Gale, Lucille, and Kathleen hard at work on the Friendship Quilt. This is the inside of the House of Trix.

Nancy, Cindy, Sandy and Kay.

Myra and Liz. So serious!

On day one we cut out the quilt. Squares of fabrics were exchanged as desired. The quilt is formed in rows. Here you see Liz's start.

And Kathleen's. Wait til you see them a bit further along!

Stay tuned for part 2! (This will play out over multiple posts--there are lots of pictures and we had a wonderful time!)

Hugs,
Sharon

P.S. No posting for last week because I had no internet connection. Did you miss me? Okay, those who are saying it was a good miss need to wipe that smirk off your face ;-)
