Quilt Therapy Retreat

This past week the Quilt Therapy Group went on retreat to Hawkeye Lake.  It is a quiet setting with the nearest place behind a bank of trees and we only saw 2 boats on the lake.  

A view from the main house down to the Lake and sauna.

We had one day of rain but otherwise we had time for walks and some exercise as well as lots of quilting.  It is great to get away with no husbands, children or grandchildren around and just sit and quilt and get caught up on what has been going on in our lives. We didn't let anything interfere with the task at hand.

We had a large piece of plywood placed on the table which gave us a lot of space to spread out.

Maria quilted the Star Wars Quilt for her grandson.

Joyce finished the quilt top for "Cabin by the Lake"
and started to quilt it.

Pierina finished the ABC quilt for her granddaughter
and started the quilting on it.

Maria and I were making small quilts for teddy bears
for Christmas Cheer Fund.

The group

We are all looking forward to next year when we will do it all again.
