What a wonderful day we had yesterday – rain was in the forecast (It’s falling now as I type this) and folks started picking up and packing up everything not needed over night, packing cars early so they wouldn’t have to be hauling all the “STUFF” in the morning rain.
We all know how quilters pack for retreat right? I’m sure everyone got their steps in!
And there was a wild array of showing and sharing – unfurling of the quilts for the world to see, be it in the parking lot in front of the QPO Studio, or later on the porch!
Sherry’s on the far right is set on point with some additional units – so we are calling it Detour on Easy Street. LOL!
She shared the back on our porch Show & Share!
There were so many quilts shared! I took SO many photos! it almost felt like I was back on the road again with all of the quilts!
In fact there are SO many, I will share about half of them today, and you’ll need to come back tomorrow to see the rest – I just can’t fit them all in this one post –
Kathy gave us a real TRUNK (or hatch!?) show in the parking area in front of the QPO studio – because of where the morning sun was shining. We didn’t want the photos in shadow.
I’m sure the passers-by loved it!
The embroidered sewing machine blocks were a gift from a neighbor friend who has passed away. What a wonderful way to remember her by piecing them into this quilt.
Friends by chance, Quilt Sisters by choice!
You can NEVER have too much cheddar – there is no such thing!
Kathy’s String of Diamonds star design in neutrals!
I know she did this as a group challenge, and I love it!
She told a funny story about having yards and yards and yards of that green fabric – it’s OLIVES! And it makes an appearance wherever green is called for.
Yesterday morning as clouds began to roll in –
Thank you ladies, this was a blast!
As I’m writing this post, I’m texting Irene to see how things are going – she woke up to everyone already bugging out trying to beat the rain, so I didn’t get to say my goodbyes this morning.
Travel safe, ladies! We’ll see you next time!
Yesterday’s lunch –
Grilled pimento cheese – decadent!
My friend Jill is taking off back home towards Erie, PA this morning as well – so it will be just Irene, Susan the housekeeper and me getting ready for tomorrow’s arrival of You and Two Friends, Group 2.
Somewhere in here – I think I may need a nap!

Get out there, and blossom!

I love the inspiration that they bring and the insight they give into a stranger’s life!
