My first Quilter's Retreat!

I worked on my Circles of Life quilt at my first Quilter's Retreat! I didnt get it done but I learned so much....I heard about 505 spray to baste my quilt, and I watched my friend glue baste her quilt with Elmer's glue! Visit Sara at Sarasquiltingcorner,  her free motion quilting is done on her domestic machine and it is beautiful.


I saw Jelly Roll Race 2 quilts being made too. They were just darling.

We saw the quilt that would teach us about the Elenor burns flying geese ruler.

And there was lots of food to be had.

I was surrounded by the Best people, they welcomed me with open arms, and still wanted to be my friend even after 3 constant days of listening to my sighing, because I must hold my breath when I quilt.  Busting out in song when a phrase reminded  me of the song It's all about that Bass, all about that Bass.  I was also known to be seen draped over my machine in exhaustion.  We had a blast!

There was so much more beauty being created that I didn't get pictures of, but they were certainly a part of making wonderful memories for me that I will never forget!
