What could be better than going on a quilting retreat the weekend of National Quilting Day? How about being "forced" to stay inside because of this?
It didn't snow a lot in Cheyenne Wyoming but if you know anything about Wyoming it is that the wind blows. A. LOT. This storm was moving in on Friday so a lot of the ladies attending the retreat opted to go a day early, including me. Even though there was no snow on Thursday, there was a strong wind, the kind of wind that had the semi trucks pulled over onto the edge of the highway. This quilter persevered, though, because you cannot keep a quilter from retreat! It was a good thing that I took more projects than normal because with that extra day I was able to get more done. You will see those in upcoming posts.
There were 38 of us in one of the fancy conference rooms at the hotel and all of the ironing and cutting boards were set up in a smaller adjacent room. We even had a guild member who is a masseuse come and give massages. Divine!
I'll leave you with one of the very creative member's WIP. This quilt will be gifted to a daughter who is graduating from college as a music major. The black batik used in this has musical instruments and symbols all over it. Wonderful, wonderful quilt.
