More Retreat Stuff...

You are gonna get so sick of hearing me talk about this retreat.

For the past several years we have had a massage therapist come and he always says, "My wife askes me where the quilt is when I get home." So, last year we decided that we would make him a quilt instead of paying for the massages this year. He met Laurie and I at Cheryl's Quilt Shop a couple weeks ago and he picked out the quilt and fabrics that he wanted. I did the figuring cause he wanted a queen and the pattern was for a lap quilt, and Laurie took it home and cut it up and put the blocks in zip-lock bags. We paid $5 for a set of 2 blocks and will make the blocks and give them to Laurie at guild this month. The top will be assembled and hopefully we will have a quilt for him at the retreat.

Here are my blocks:

More Door Prizes
This week I received packages from Olfa, Calico Point Quilt Shop, Walmart, Rossville Quilts, Marvy Markers, Nancy's Notions, and Janet. Thank you so much for your generousity.

OK, can you stand one more photo of the Cobblestones quilt. Here's Jeni with her new quilt. Matches her hair pretty well, don't you think. She loves it and her daughter loves it too.
