Quilt Retreat

Row by Row

It is quilted and bound...yeah!  I really like this little quilt, lots of fun to make.

Last weekend, I went to the Liberty Quilt retreat at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City, Nebraska.  It was a wonderful, relaxing time...visiting, sewing, shopping, walking through the woods, wine tastings at 5 p.m. and it was over all too soon!  We got silly on St Patrick's day with our green wigs....put smiles on the other guests at the lodge.  There was a wedding party there on Saturday, and one of the little girls had a mishap with her dress.  Her dad brought her into our sewing room, asked if anyone had a needle and thread....thirty voices piped up...I do!  Many other guests wandered through to see what we were up to, and to admire the quilts.  My camera refused to cooperate, so I have no pictures to share, so sorry!  What did I work on?  Will show it later on, another scrappy quilt of course!

looks like you had ever so much fun on the retreat! Your quilt is wonderful- with all the fun I'm surprised you got anything done. I know I'd not be as productive lol.
I'd also not look so cute in a green wig!

I love that Quilt!! I have the book, but I had forgotten what was in it. : ) I need to make a table runner as a gift and now I wonder if I can adapt this pattern. I really want to make it !
