|Isn't this a unique setting? Kay C. was using this pattern at retreat to feature her farm animal panel. We can see lots of uses for this pattern. It's here in stock now!|

A friend of the group gave me $40 to give away. We are calling this David's Scholarship. We put everyone's name in the hat and drew. The winner was Sarah L. from Nebraska. We join her in saying, "Thank you, David!"
|Deb S. put together over 50 charity pillowcases while at retreat!|
And here are a few of the quilt tops that were born this week. I am sure I missed some. It was really wonderful being in such a creative environment. Of course, great food and massages helped!

I'll let the pictures speak! What a great time with a great group.
|Nancy Sharr holds a unique honor. She has never missed one of our quilt retreats in the past 16 years. Influenza B took her down this year. We made sure she was still there in spirit, saving her a seat at the stitching table.|
We started with show and tell.

Monday was our QC March meeting. After a little catch up, we shared some great show and tell.
|Nancy H. shared this pattern and kit she is declaring as her Archive Get Er Done project of the year.|
|She also shared this block-a-day quilt she just completed. Absolutely beautiful.|
|Jackie O showed us this pretty quilt, made with friends, a comfort quilt for an online quilt group.|
|and here is the pretty back.|
|And another comfort quilt she made for a different comfort quilt program. This one is for Adel Alumni in school colors.|
|This is some thread play Jackie has been practicing on her long arm.|
|Deb is in a block exchange and finding these little blocks a challenge.|
|So she tried these sewing guides, an attachment to use with her sewing machine, that has made easy work of it.|
|And this is a new pattern Deb is playing with on her long arm. Looks great on this flannel doggie quilt.|
|Kathy H showed this shop sample quilt she made, Ombre Weave, quilted with another of Deb's new designs.|
|This is such a Margaret quilt. Isn't it beautiful?|
|Here's a pretty little baby quilt Trish made with charm squares.|
|Abbie showed us this T-Shirt quilt. We all loved the dimension the ombre fabric gives.|
|And this is a quilt she made for a dancing granddaughter.|
See the label next.
|This is a quilt Abbie is finishing up, left behind from a previous generation.|
|Theresa shared this. These are the half square triangle units we exchanged last year. Each month was designated a color to pair up with a mostly black with white fabric. Love it!|
|And then it was Nancy J's turn. She brought all of these quilts and stacks of blocks to donate to our library fund raiser sale in June. Some came to her from a friends estate.|
|Kathy H showed us this wedding quilt she made for her daughter. Very nice. Following is the label.|
|Lonnie, always up for a challenge, finished this Gypsy Wife quilt. So pretty and so well done!|
