For many years, a group of women and I would meet two times a year at a cabin in the woods for a 3 day quilt retreat. We picked days in the Spring and in the Fall that would work for all of the participants. We visited, watched movies, ate good food and QUILTED. I have since moved away from the community, and although I attended a few more times after moving, it became too cumbersome to get away to travel and attend the retreat. The lucky thing was, during one of our block exchanges, I asked each of the members of the group to make a house block that represented them. I wanted to look at the block and know who made it. I put the blocks together to make a retreat quilt.
This is the cabin, with it's three big windows that gave us a view of the icy water below. I put this block in the middle and surrounded it with flying geese, blueberries and evergreen trees.
I can look at these blocks and think about Jeri and her dragonflies, Connie, me, Judy, DJ, Jan. DJ gave me a little piece of fabric with a airplane like the one my husband flies when she gave me her block. I incorporated it into my block in the quilt.Kathy with a y, Val, Karen, Krissy, Shirley, and Edith Ann.
