Retreat to the lake

Oh, time to get away, quilt with others, and have meals prepared away from home.
I love to accomplish so much in a weekend while being with other quilters.  So inspiring.
And I can pick up other suggestions for all kinds of things like storage, patterns. tricks and so much. I even visited a local quilt store.

Here is the project I am so happy to have gotten out. I started my Log Cabin Quilt along in January and got the center blocks and all the prep work for this applique started. Here is the link for the center.Log cabin quilt along But it sat. And now I got 2 borders laid out and glued basted. I have even decided to do hand applique and have a lot of the stems and red berries sew on one of the borders.
Here are some of the projects others were working on:

Such a cute quilt and he was doing another one in a different colorway.
This one was a challenge quilt that a group of them got fabrics for. 
This is mostly Kaffe and purple: the theme of our quilt show in March is Everything goes with purple. And the quilter LOVES purple.
Loved this one which was for a friend who retired.  There are more bear's paw blocks for it.

Scenery break.  I just love the lake.. Love, love, love.
Oh, and this wool applique has so many little blocks and then the patchwork in between. 
This lovely lady made the cutest art quilt about her dog, but it is blurred.

So much more, but I can't download too many pictures at a time on my phone.  Be inspired.
