Reunion of sorts

When we were on the quilt retreat in Feb, Kim offered to have a Spring Fling retreat reunion at her house in March. Of course, we jumped at the chance to get together and sew all day! So yesterday, even though the day started out with snow, we packed up all our stuff and went to Kim's.
Kim had made a quilt as you go runner, so some of them wanted to try that. Cutting is always the first step,  after figuring out what to cut. I started a Circle and Spin quilt for my youngest daughter.  I have been collecting asian fabrics for it for a long time. In fact, she picked some of them out when we were in Seattle last  summer.
We all wore our Quilt! shirts, except for Pat...as someone messed up her order and hers hasn't come yet.

Kim has a beautiful house! we had figured out the menu for lunch at the retreat and all brought parts to make it. We also spent some time yesterday planning our next retreat.
We had a great time, though we missed Dianne, who was sick and wasn't able to come. It ended up lightly snowing most of the day, but the temp was high enough that it just melted on the roads.

Group quilting is so much more fun than flying solo. Big smiles-- those say plenty about the great time you had.
Were the shirts special order?
