Our first retreat was a resounding success! The retreat center was perfect, comfy rooms, a roomy meeting room and (most important) great food! Kathy Tracy did an interesting talk about doll quilts and a great show & tell of many of her quilts from all of her books. Then on Saturday she taught us the Union Stars quilt from her new book, "The Civil War Sewing Circle." Most of us got at least a few blocks finished, and I am hoping to see several of the finished quilts in our Annual Quilt Show in August. Here are some pictures from the retreat.
