This past weekend some of my Illinois friends from my Yahoo group organized a small quilt retreat near Chicago. Quilters from several states and Canada attended and we all had a lot of fun.
The retreat was held at Techny Towers, a conference center and former seminary in Northbrook Illinois.
The grounds were lovely.
Since it was not my retreat and I wasn't teaching a workshop, quilters were allowed to bring anything they wanted to work on. Many, of course, brought small quilt projects, some from the challenges we have been doing this year and last.
I gave a demo on making the Orange Peel quilt that's in Remembering Adelia.
Karen made us all special quilted name tags. So sweet!
We had a Show & Tell of small quilts -
And a few large quilts too . . .
Keep this small quilt retreat in mind for later this year. Heather in our group is planning on organizing another one for the fall and perhaps we will see some of you there there. We'd love it if you joined us.
I don't want to hear any excuses that you live too far away. Helen and Linda drove all the way from Canada to sew with us here in Chicago . . .
