More retreat fun!

I absolutely must brag on some of the other quilters at last weeks retreat! Yes, they are my wonderful friends, and their work is just outstanding. First of all, a reminder of how beautiful it was up there at Camp Keola, Huntington Lake, California. Elevation, 7000ft

.

So very beautiful. This is just below one of the big wild fires that burned this summer. Fortunately, this particular area was spared!



This stunner was made by the wonderful Jennifer!



This Christmas gem was made by Dotty!



A fun little quilt also by Jennifer!



Barb just finished prairie stitching this fun little quilt herself!  Such a great job, Barb!!.



Dotty brought this one back for sew and tell! She pieced this at last years retreat, had it quilted and tee-dah!!!



Barb made this denim stunner! Yes, these are denim fabrics. So colorful and fun!

NOTE: The week before the retreat, Dotty made a trip to the MCC headquarters in Reedley, California. She turned in the first van load of quilts for next years sale! We are so happy to announce that there were 57 quilts turned in that day!!! We are almost 1/2 way to our goal for the 2014 sale. (Only 80 to go to match our 2013 count)  The next "West Coast Mennonite Sale & Auction for World Relief" will be held on April 4 & 5, 2014. It is held annually at the Fresno Pacific University campus in Fresno, California. We'd all love to see you there. I'd be happy to answer questions if you have any!!

I am linking to Needle & Thread Thursday with the wonderful Kelly as our hostess with the mostess!!  She is an inspiration to all who are fortunate to meet her.  Thanks Kelly, for your friendship and generosity!

Oh my goodness...what amazing quilters you have there in your picturesque little corner of the world!! Those quilts are beauties. The quilts you ladies so tirelessly stitch, in order that others can feel loved is such a blessing!!

Those are all gorgeous!

wow Vicki! These are such great quilts. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus is one of my favorite kids' books, and the quilt is just as adorable!

Thank you so much for linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday!
