Tracey and Pam from Iowa were the last to arrive, even though they began their journey at 7 AM. Can we say "shop hopping across three states" to get here? Needless to say, they were fired up and ready to sew. And sew they did. Pam finished two tops she brought with her, the mystery quilt class, and cut out two more projects before leaving. She would have cut one more she picked up on the way to the retreat, however the quilt shop from which she purchased the kit did not include any directions for the kit (what's up with that?).
(The sign says: "The Wicked Witch Died A Death by Chocolate at The Quilters Quarters)
The quilt in the backdrop is "White Chocolate" by my friend Deb.
Some sewed well into the night, I think the last person closed the room at 2 AM. Sunday morning after a big brunch, we were all back in the sewing room trying to complete the last few seams.
