For the 7th year some of the women in our Bee group have gone on a quilt retreat. Carol invites us to her summer home in upper Wisconsin where she kept the lower level empty so that she could invite us each year.
As we sew, we look out onto this beautiful lake.
Carol rents tables so that each one of us has a nice large sewing space. The room is clean and inviting.
The right door leads to the convenient half-bath, and the dark doorway leads to the outside.
(The rifle is handy in case anyone tries to steal our fabric!)
Aline sweated over the calculations to get these stars to fit around her adorable redwork.
She also assembled these flower pinwheels and put the first border on making it ready for some applique.
Here I am with a vegetable tablerunner, a pile of black and white blocks, a sample “plaid” block, and the beginning of a quilt for Quilts of Valor.
