Quilting on the Rim - Quilt Retreat

 Last weekend I spent a delightful weekend at Quilting on the Rim in Linden, AZ. Pictured below is the charming house we stayed in. Barbara is a delightful hostess and an excellent cook. All of the food was absolutely delicious! Fortunately, she is working on a cookbook. I can't wait to get my hands on that!

 Here are a couple of projects that some of the other ladies were working on. There were six people in our group and I failed to get a group photo. Boo!

This was one of Sue's many projects. She is a speed demon on her machine. I think she probably accomplished more than anyone at this retreat!

Kathy is another speedy one. She put together 29 blocks from a Block of the Week program she signed up for! This quilt top is for her guest room, and absolutely perfect for the space. Can't wait to see this one finished and in its new room!

This is my daughter's Christmas quilt. At least it will be, once I get it quilted. I precut all of my fabric and sewed the entire top at the retreat. This quilt will go on her bed at Christmas time. The fabrics are The Caroler by Mary Engelbreit for Moda. I bought the fabric a couple of years ago, and life got in the way. Now that the top is done, I am sure my daughter will be getting this for Christmas this year.

It really was a great weekend, productive and fun! And to top it all off, we booked our weekend for next year while we were there!
