1st Annual Material Girls Wonder Valley Retreat

What a productive weekend for all who came.  Unfortunately only 7 of the 17 members were able to come but we had a GREAT time with great food and conversations.  Here are 6 of the 7 of us.  Diane took the picture so she wasn't in it.


We sat in a circle kind of so we can all communicate easily.  We had great weather all weekend except for the fog driving up.  But we all got there Friday morning and sewed until about 1 today.

Here are some of the things we all worked on this weekend.  I didn't get pictures of everything like the cute little purses that Diane made and the quilting Kathy did on her Melinda Bula quilt and the quilt bag she was working on today.
I finished this little quilt top for my granddaughter.  

The beautiful purple grey blocks are what Lynn Marie worked on and the other  blocks are what I got done on my Fireworks quilt top.  (8 of 16 done)

Barbara worked on her boutique items.   She made a ton of napkins and started on some aprons yesterday.


Janice worked on machine quilting this beauty and bound it too.

Then she finished this top and had to decide to not border

Or add a border?  
Elaine worked and finished this big block quilt.  She also finished a cute red and white runner


And I got all the blocks and pieces done for this quilt.  Yes, I know about the bad block on the top right.  It's fixed already.  
We reserved the room again for next year at the same time and we hope with this much time to plan, more of our girls can come.  We also planned our Christmas get together as well as discussed a road trip to Sisters Quilt Show in July 2015.

Thanks for looking.

We were spoiled with only 7 people working. LOTS of room! It's always fun to get together and quilt. I like the sharing of ideas that occurs during the time together.
