I can hardly believe it is the last Thursday of October. Only two months left in 2022!
Last Friday I went to a quilting retreat in the mountains, at Hartland Christian Camp. It is a really beautiful camp, in the heart of the California Sierras, about a two-hour drive from Fresno. I went to summer camp there a couple of times in grade school, and in fact two of my uncles were part of the group that started the camp back in the late 1940s.
Anyway, the number of quilters attending has grown to about 100, and we are spread out in six different buildings.
In our building, Redwood, we had plenty of space to spread out and sew without feeling cramped. The lighting was great and we had lots of windows so we could enjoy the trees surrounding us. And we had a good view of the zipline, which several women tried. Not me, though! The food was amazing. So.much.food. And every day at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. they come in with snacks, just in case we would faint from starvation. Ha.
My friend, Janice, worked on this fabulous flannel quilt, made with a jelly roll from a line called Woolies by Windham Fabrics. I think there might be an uptick in sales of this jelly roll because everyone who saw the quilt fell in love with it. Full disclosure: one of the first things I did when I came home was order the jelly roll to make my own.
