Kim’s Mystery Retreat Quilt

Today I finished quilting another beautiful quilt that was made as a Mystery Quilt at the 2009 Quilt Retreat Getaway Weekend.  Kim did a fantastic job on her quilt and I love her colors.

Quilt Retreat Getaway Weekend 2005

In cleaning out my old computer and transferring to my new, I came across a copy of my old webpage from 2005.  Found lots of pictures from the 2005 Quilt Retreat Getaway Weekend.

Our project was Camp Wawbeek Trail.
  This was Diane Lapacek's sample for the weekend.

Kathy Parker won the give away blocks for a sampler.
We had snow that weekend but notice how green the grass was!

Now all four of these ladies were working on the same quilt.  Is it the block or is it the quilter or is it the teacher?  I wish I had finished quilts to match each block.

Get a load of the line up at the ironing tables!

I was doing some tearing out for someone.  But, what I really like about this picture is the food on the snack tables in the background!

I love the concentration on the faces in this picture.  This had to be one of the most serious times at all of our retreats.  I really wonder what was happening!

We paper pieced a mini quilt with insulated batting to use as a hot pad for the center of the table.  Who's hands are in the picture on the left?  A $10 gift certificate to the store at the 2010 Quilt Retreat Getaway Weekend for the first one to identify them.

Show and tell of our 2004 project, Prairie Star,
an original pattern by Diane Lapacek.

A beautiful Bargello shown at Show and Tell.

Thankful, counting, ironing and concentrating.

And, last but not least, Diane Lapacek, my number one teacher for my retreats and none other than me, Barbara Raisbeck, the owner of
Quilts by Barb.

More pictures coming soon!

Happy Quilting.
