I'm still unpacking and sorting.  These are my 'winnings' from retreat.

10 fat quarters are from our FQ raffle.  I've never won before at retreat, so that was exciting.

The jelly roll was the first prize given on Wed.

The coaster was a nice gift, as was the Quilter's Survival Bag.  Lollipops (or roses depending on your perspective) FQs on a stick as well as the cute strawberry appliques are from game night.

We each made signature blocks for everyone this year.  For most, that was a first, and they did a nice job.  Here's 19.  One must have jumped out of the bag!

I'm planning to make a retreat tote with them using this fabric along with the blocks.

It's kind of sad to be putting the last bits of these things from our Spring Thaw Retreat away, but there's always next year.

Hi Pat.
Love the Retreat print fabric you have shown. Could you tell me where I could order it from ?
The summer without TV sounds like a good idea. My
Sewing room is now so much better organized. I hope I make something to completion every week(or month this summer.

Love to be friends with quilters. My guild is having a 3 day sleep at home retreat... Judy Hasheider of WI is leading us as we make her pattern of a Log Cabin Sampler Quilt. Mine will be very non-traditional fabric colors for a log cabin.

My sister wants to get the Necessary Clutch Wallet pattern. Could you text (920-892-4801) me the shop phone # in FL. Please.

Thanks a Stitch, Toni in Sheboygan, WI.
Do you cross the big Machinac Lk MI bridge to get to Saute St. Marie ? Or, are you a summer Upper ?
