Here are some of the quilts that people were working on at Cindy’s Auburn retreat a couple of weeks ago:
The retreats are held at the Mercy Retreat Center where we have our own cozy rooms and good home cooking, plenty of space to spread out and sew, and the time to do it! Cindy brings lights, irons, cutting mats and some rulers, although if you are using specialty type rulers, you should always bring your own. Everything is set up to have a good time and get a lot done.
Oh – and Cindy’s favorite youngest daughter is a professional baker!
Different dessert every night! This was the chocolate cake (I’m sure it has a much fancier name because it’s the best I’ve ever had) and her cheesecake would put everybody else out of business if she franchised, for sure!
My friend Linda met me up there this time – we actually tried to caravan, but just couldn’t seem to make our meeting up places work, so we went separately together! She was getting ideas from Cindy on how to quilt this one:
She also spent quite a lot of time binding a quilt she had made for her son Nick who just graduated from college this year and is moving to Austin for a new job. Here are two pics of that quilt:
I don’t think Linda and I signed up for the same retreat sessions next year, but we’ll both be back, definitely!
