This past week some of the Rambling Art Quilters gathered to have a retreat at the Shaw Nature Reserve. This is the group that did the river quilts (see the December 17 post). We sewed at the Freund Center and slept in bunks at the Dana Brown camp facility. It was beautiful spring weather and we took some hiking breaks to enjoy the weather.
The group is working on a new project which involves wedges that assemble into a large circular quilt. I worked on my wedge which represents my favorite place in the world–England.
I also made a mug rug for an exchange at the Modern Quilt Guild. We drew names to exchange so I’m showing my mug rug but I’m not telling who I made it for.
Finally, I worked on a small landscape that I started in my Gloria Loughman class last May.
It was a special retreat for a number of reasons. Even though I did the river project with the group, I had not actually met the women from the Kansas City area. At this retreat, I had the opportunity to get to know the ones who were able to attend. It’s always wonderful to come away from a retreat with not only finished projects but new friends! The weather was also a treat as was the site. Many thanks to Candy for making the arrangements!
