Spring 2012 Quilters Retreat at the Alpine Lodge

The Quilters Spring Retreat at the Alpine Lodge of Gaylord was held April 27, 28 and 29th.  There were 31 retreaters and lots of projects to work on between shopping, meals, an ice cream social, a quilt show, hot tubbing and more!  Everyone had plenty of space to work with plus there were cutting and pressing stations.  The next retreat will be held in November.

A group of relatives sewed together for the weekend.

Sylvia, one of the owners of the Alpine Lodge just happens to be a quilter!

Maxine pieced and smiled all weekend.

Virgina is making the log cabin blocks.  The other blocks were being made by Beth.

Kathy skipped up to attend a wedding but returned in time for the Quilt Show
 and more quilting.

Toni worked and worked on these triangles.  When she took a break she worked on Dog/Cat Beds filled with scraps of fabric and batting for the Animal Shelter.

Diane found out that blowing up a machine isn't much fun but managed to replace hers with a almost new Viking that was on consignment at the shop.
