Quilt Guild Retreat November 2009

Last weekend the Patoka Valley Quilt Guild held its annual fall retreat at the Drury Inn in Evansville, IN. We had a great time and got lots of "work" done. The projects were varied--from aprons to full-sized quilts. The sewing/quilting talent in the room was amazing. You can always learn something at a retreat.

The room was packed with sewing machines and supplies. Baby quilts, paper piecing projects, and flannel quilts were just some of the projects these ladies worked on.These ladies worked on jackets, wall hangings, yo yos, and aprons (among other things). Members worked on both machine and hand quilted items.Christmas projects kept many of us busy.Here is an apron made as a Christmas gift for a little one.Some members worked on charity projects ranging from blocks for the "Home-of-the-Brave" project to quilt tops for church raffles.
If you get a chance to attend a retreat, do it! You'll have a great time.
