Ladies of the Lake Quilt Retreat - Fall 2017

Charity Quilts from blocks collected or made at retreat:

These three quilts were finished up and presented to Kavanagh House in memory of my husband, Frank Johnson. Thank you to Iowa Comfort Quilts for donating the tower of fat quarters we used for these blocks and thanks to Deb Semmens for quilting each of them.

These next three quilts were made from blocks collected at retreat, using a bright ombre fabric that was distributed to guests at Fall 2016 retreat.  These three quilts were presented to Nancy J as comfort quilts for her daughter's family as they battle their way through a devastating fight with cancer. Thank you to the Quilting Divas that collected the blocks and finished all three of these quilts.
