Mini Retreat 2017

Our guild decided to have a mini retreat this weekend
Catch All Caddy pattern front cover 

We rooked Vernelle into teaching how to make the Catch All caddy by Annie

She will be MIA next time. 

It was like herding a bunch of farm cats...

we were a mess!!

Some had all the components ready, while others had not started.


with some patience and lots of help, we all got a caddy finished!!

This was mine...

Jane's in some japanase blossom  

 Terry's in some fabulous batiks

Narrie's cute lobsters

 Charlene's 'easter' colors 

Colleen made great use of her selvage edges

Love it!! 

Chris's in Garden themed fabric 

 We also had a surprise visit from Marianna Wick and her first quilt! 

Lightening Two Color Bargello

 The same one I was working on! 
(only I missed a step and got an M)

 It was a productive and fun weekend!! 

 Deb finished a project from her moms stash, Dresden plate 

Jane got a good start on a stack and that blue!

There was some great show and tell.

Terry has a collection of collage quilts using up her Kaffe Fassett fabrics



 A second elephant

 Narrie finished her quilt

 And hand quilted it!!!

Beautiful work! 


Thanks for the fun, everyone!!

Have a great family day tomorrow!



  1. It was lots of fun. I'm glad we did it. Thanks Vernelle for your infinite patience and good humour. We were taxing to say the least.

  2. Great job, Ladies, on those totes. I'm sorry to have missed making it with you all. Love Terry's wild animals, too!!


Thank you for reading and hope your enjoyed!!
