Retreat Fall 2013

Here is my Easy Street quilt top hanging from the railing at retreat. The lady in green is my mom, Betty. I had all the blocks done before but took them to retreat and got them together. I still need to do the boarders. But it is getting closer to being done. I hope to get the boarders on before Bonnie Hunter's next mystery quilt that starts in November. I am planning to do the next again this year. 

Here is a photo of the room. I believe there were 37 of us this year. It is run by my Aunt Arley and held at Sunnyside Camp on Sylvan Lake. 

I broke my special seam ripper, dropped it on the floor. I left it in the garbage can.  I will have to make a new ripper. I feel I am short a seam ripper even though I dug out a cheap one. Not the same as the one I had. 


  1. Your "Easy Street" is spectacular, Cathy! I'll bet it feels good to get the top put together, even if you still have the borders to do.

  2. Easy Street looks great. I have to get the borders on mine as well...been done for months to this point. So sorry about your specially personal built seam ripper - (RIP) Looks like a happy productive group of retreaters.

  3. It looks like a grand group of ladies spending lots of wonderfully productive time creating and playing together. Your easy street has turned out so beautifully- You are on creative roll.
