A Mountain Retreat...

After market I was lucky enough to meet up with some friends and have some down time:)
We all packed our sewing supplies and headed to the beautiful mountains of Utah....
to Alpine Quilt Retreat....a gorgeous and totally relaxing place to unwind, visit and do a little sewing!
These are the blocks that I did while there...
It's one of Camille's new adorable patterns for Ruby.
At market Camille asked if she could purchase my "Cakewalk" pattern and I totally fell in love with and wanted to make Swoon so we traded straight across!...thanks Camille...you're a sweetie:)  
Are you wondering who I "retreated" with?...well I was lucky enough to get together with Elizabeth...Nanette....and Pam.
I know!...lucky is the right word. I love all these girls and we sure had a fun time together.


This is what our design wall looked like as we were making progress.
Elizabeth crocheted the cute granny squares...Nanette is making 
Cherry Cheesecake...and Pam is making
Of course our time together ended too soon as all quilt retreats do...but I will always remember it with a smile and a hope for another time together soon:)

It was so much fun. I keep looking at my little cup block you made, so cute, and so extra special with your embroidery. xop

Oh my!!! What a wonderful Blog here. My friend knows how much my friends and I love to quilt and sent me the link to your Site this morning.
I have to rush off for now, but will definitely be back to take it all in.
Happy quilting!

I am going to try that Swoon pattern. What fabric choices would you suggest to use for that?

I'm sure it was a wonderful time. Love all of your blocks you ladies made :) And such a beautiful and relaxing place to retreat! Sounds fun!

Camille said...

Love them! And you, you clever girl. I have my cakewalk pattern (and trim) sitting on my table beckoning me every day. They call to me. Dying to dig in. Now, if we can just make it through this last week of school...
