Red Barn Quilt Retreat 2019

Happy Thursday to you all. Our county guild held its annual mini retreat at the Red Barn on Monday and Tuesday of this week. I had signed up to help; it's been months in the planning. This year's weather was so much nicer than last year when it was in the high 90's. The barn is wonderful except there is no air-conditioning and even with fans last year, it was pretty hot. This year with our weather being so weird, it was in the low 80's with afternoon showers. Here is the inside of the barn set up with tables for three gals.  You can tell there are lots of weddings that take place here.
As I wandered around the room on Tuesday I talked with a gal making place mats~this pic doesn't reflect the true color, because they were much more jewel tones and lots of purples.
One of my quilting friends who always inspires me.  Michelle is a great quilter and we had such fun; our other table mate was also Michelle and she was a hoot as well. I love sitting with friends, it makes it so much more fun.
Two gals were working on this quilt and it was beautiful-one was doing the pieces and one the placing of the squares.
Here is the placemat that I started; with so many jobs to do, I didn't get very much done.  I love the fabric as it reminds me of Hawaii.  I got two done and have two more to do, possibly this afternoon.

I'm off taking Hunter to the groomers, then meeting family at the pool. Later tonight we have our town concert and if it doesn't rain it will be good.
Joy to you!


  1. Sounds like it was wonderful.
    Our mobile groomer is doing Skye tomorrow and I have a haircut in the morning!!

  2. Noreen, I can imagine going to any quilt show would be like going to an art gallery. So many talented people and such amazing works. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
