Another Successful Spring Retreat!

Diane W. planned, organized and taught the Mystery Quilt at Spring Retreat this year!  Yes, this woman is amazing!  And thanks to her, our members enjoyed a fantastic weekend!

The fun began Friday evening.  What a wonderful way to end a work week!
This was our sunset view as the fun began!   Look at the progress everyone made over the weekend.  Here are photos of guild members and their mystery quilt. The mystery is called "Around the Bend", and was designed by Debbie Caffrey.  Here is Audrey working on her mystery!

This was Jessica's second year at retreat!  Such fun!

Kay enjoyed doing her mystery with neutrals.  Beautiful!

Joan celebrated spring with her fabric choices!

Kathleen chose a tropical theme for her mystery.

As well as being guild president, Sam was also busy solving the mystery quilt!

Tammy chose a beautiful floral print. 

Deyna was all smiles as she worked on her quilt.
Diane U. was working with a blue and neutral combination.

Cece used a beautiful purple and green combination.  We were impressed that she dressed to match her quilt! ;-)
While these members were busy solving their mystery quilts, a few other members were working on other projects.
Valerie demonstrated her ability to sew without using her hands!  Either that or she thought she was being arrested! 
Here are the results of her efforts this weekend.  A beautiful version of Hunter's Star!
Terry worked on a kit that her husband had given her as a gift.
Lila was busy working on her Quiltworx Flying Geese quilt.

On Saturday evening we held our potluck dinner and ...
Guild President Sam ran the business meeting.
Our newest member, Baby Astrid joined in the fun!  She brought along her mommy, Amber and friend Ria.

We also enjoyed some great "Show & Tell" quilts.
Jessica brought in her top from her first retreat, 2011!
This is Sam's gorgeous quilt!  Diane did the machine quilting!  What a beautiful combination!
Amber shared the beautiful Noah's Ark quilt she is in the process of making for Baby Astrid.  The animals are paper pieced ... it is just too cute for words!
Thanks Diane for all you did to fill our retreat weekend with quilting fun!  We really do appreciate the many things you did to make the spring retreat enjoyable for everyone!
