Just for the weekend.....
This weekend is our annual Shawnee Retreat! Hooray!! I'm Saved!
But first a little Frida love. I bought 3 yards of this fabulous fabric at the Lancaster Quilt Show. Won't this make a wonderful backing?
This is my favorite art book of her work. She was a talented and fascinating woman.
Little Day of the Dead figures of Frida and Diego keep company with my thread.
Today I'm also sharing a fun note and photos I received from Gwen Marston (my mentor, idol and friend.) It was such a fun surprise for me.
Here is a photo from 1995, my first Beaver Island retreat with my dear friend, Mary B. The theme was log cabin quilts and I made 1 small quilt a day.
Gwen in on the far left, I don't know who is in the brown pants, then me looking totally dorky in a denim dress and sweatshirt (nice hair, lol) and my Mary.
Here is the log cabin quilt that Mary made. I loved it then; I love it now.
Here is what I'll be working on at the Retreat:
The Flying Geese project:
And my king sized bed nine-patch quilt (not worked on since the retreat 2 years ago - ooops.) I even added some more of those chinzy looking brown florals. Oh yea, I have a backing already. Now I just need to SEW!
I hope you are doing something really fun this Weekend and Happy Spring!
