Spring Retreat Success!

We arrived Saturday morning ...
... excited to begin paper piecing Judy Niemeyer style ...
... and to the largest pan of "monkey bread" in guild history!  It smelled and tasted wonderful!
We began by working on our "Spike" units ...
... it was inspiring to see everyone's fabric choices!
In the early afternoon, Sue demonstrated how to organize and piece the "Flying Geese" units.  We all got busy!

And before long...

... those flying geese units began showing up everywhere!

Guild members Neva ...
... and Kathleen joined us while they worked on personal projects.

This morning (Sunday) the focus was to continue working on the units necessary to complete our table runners.

Sue shared with us the assembly techniques!  She had many hints that made curve piecing easy!
Celebrating success!  We had fun teasing her about dressing to match her table runner!
A huge thank you to Guild Member Diane who organized this event!  She was also responsible for much of the food that we enjoyed all weekend!  We appreciate the many things Diane did to make the retreat so successful!  Many of us were intimidated by Judy Niemeyer's designs, but Sue gave us the skills and confidence to conquer those fears!  Thanks to Sue's patient, calm and clear teaching abilities, everyone was successful!
What a terrific group of women to spend the weekend with!  And how beautiful the tables in Cordova with be when these runners are put to use!  A wonderful and productive retreat!
