Retreat! (At Last)

Our retreat group was so happy to get together again after having to cancel the last two scheduled get-togethers due to you-know-what. We went to Kim’s Summit Retreat in Maggie Valley, NC, and it was perfect.

We were greeted by this beautiful Sassafras leaf on the front steps

Assembling some of the triangles from one of our previous swaps

Haha! This was a donation quilt project we were scheduled to do in October of 2020!

This was picked up from the quilter and I got it bound. More later.

One group member modified the free Kaffe Fasset pattern “Carnival” so she could use smaller blocks

This is a paper-pieced block-of-the-month that two of our members are doing

One retreater is making at least two quilts from fabric featuring national parks

I took these orphan blocks and put them on the design wall…

…then made additional blocks and strips to fill in the holes

That was so much fun! We are looking forward to the next one 😀

  1. Did you know that Sassafras Trees are becoming rare in the South these days? My first encounter with a Sassafras when we first moved here was sheer delight in its discovery. So, I’m thinking, that Sassafras leaf greeting was a token of good luck for your quilters retreat…and guess what! Its blessings were bestowed upon your group, right?
    My fav is your orphan-star top BTW.

    • I found these in a pile together during the move so they probably were intended as part of a single project. I have no memory of it, though, and there was no pattern, so they are orphans.
