The new president of the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild, Adrienne, invited members to spend a couple of days at her parent’s cottage in Georgian Bay. A few of us packed our sewing machines, projects and swimsuits to take advantage of this generous offer.
The weather, the view and the company were great!
Everyone pitched in and brought food, food and more food!
Everyone had a space to work.
Time was spent laughing and sharing.
Dia brought cake to celebrate all the July birthdays.
Sunsets were photographed.
More amazing photographs were taken.
Some projects were begun and a few were completed. We look forward to our next retreat. A huge thanks to Adrienne and her parents, the Van Halems for allowing us to share their beautiful place.
My door prize was a Hobbs Tuscany Collection Quilt Batt. This batt is a blend of cotton and wool. I was excited because I had wanted to try quilting with a wool batt and now I have the opportunity to try it out! Also included were a package of ColorWorks Microchips by Northcott Fabrics and a couple of fat quaters that coordinate with the Color Works soids.
The weekend ended with a few projects completed and many begun. New friendships were formed and the desire to repeat this experience again!
Thanks to Kristyn of the London Modern Quilt Guild and Becky and Andrea of the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild for organizing and hosting this great quilting retreat. To see more photos of the event check out #swomodquiltretreat2016.
