Remember When...........

Time for another update on my Remember When series.  We will move ahead to 2004 Quilt Retreat Getaway Weekend.  This retreat was also held at Sugar Creek but at the Koinonia Lodge.

Our project was "Prairie Star."  This was an original pattern created by Diane Lapacek.  Diane has been the A number one teacher at all the retreats hosted by Quilts by Barb.  I couldn't do it without her.

In the 2003 pictures, I only showed the back of Bette's head. 
I really thought we should show her off a little better.

This quilt was a real hit at Show and Tell.  My daughter, Katrina and
daughter-in-law, Nikki, are both UW alumni and would love to have it.
This is the mystery in 2004.  Who does this quilt belong to? 
The first to identify the owner receives a $10 gift certificate in the store at the


Each year at the Quilt Retreat Getaway Weekend we make a quilt to "give back."  In 2004, we put together a "village for Sugar Creek."   These are some of the blocks donated by the retreat participants that we assembled into a quilt and reteurned to Sugar Creek to hang in their new lodge when it was finished.
Pictured at left, is Diane Lapacek and at right, Barb Raisbeck.

At retreat, we meet many old friends and make new friends.  Mary Ann and Terry are old neighbors and good friends who have attended a number of our retreat together.  Karen and Claire are new acquaintances and were soon friends.  I think that is Mary hiding behind a T shirt quilt we helped her with.

Claire never stops smiling. 

Stayed tune for more Remember When.......... pictures.
