They used their wonderful quilter's imaginations to come up with the meal and all of these wonderful decorations.
Fabric fortune cookies with quilt style quotes inside.......
Coolie hats on the drinking straws..........
and a Panda bear with his sleeping mask because we all needed extra sleep after this weekend!
The Uncompahgre Bed and Breakfast, an historic building in Montrose, CO. was an old schoolhouse, now a charming Bed and Breakfast with accommodation for 26 overnight, so it fit our quilt retreaters very well. We set up shop in the large dining room, and all weekend our machines whirred as laughter and chatter filled the building from early morning to the wee small hours[ for a valiant few!]
Some of us gathered for a photo-op Saturday on the front porch, I remembered how to set up the timer on my camera so I was able to run back and hop in the picture [that's me on the far right in front!]
These first two pics in black, white and red are my work, they are to be single bed size for our two older grandsons. Obviously I still have a ways to go to get them large enough but they don't have to be finished until Christmas so I think I can do it! They are taking a little longer because I have to mostly make up the design as I go to fit around their chosen logos, the Knight's Cross [or Iron Cross] for Daniel's and the Arizona Cardinals Logan's favorite team.
The following pics show sewing progress from some of the other retreaters:
