April Retreat in the Mountains Part I

Waterfall Mountain in Warrensville, NC may never be the same after this past weekend. Quilters from the Lake Norman area and two from Huntsville, Alabama, gathered for 4 days of fun and creativity. Quilts were sewn together, bags were made, knitting, beading and even a cute little girl's skirt was sewn!

Bev completed this bright and happy snowman quilt. Clara, new to quilting, cut and put together this really pretty quilt with greens and wine colors. She is definitely got the but - already has several projects in the works and her mind is racing ahead with others - go Clara!!
We were so grateful that Bev L. (right) and Joyce A. (left) traveled all the way from Alabama - they soon became known as "The Bama Girls." Joyce put together the quilt on the right. She also put another one together and made a skirt for her daughter. Bev was the newest quilter/sewer in the group and did a fabulous job putting together and almost completing 24 log cabin squares!
More pics and tidbit coming in Part II.
