quilt retreat: day four


By Patricia Belyea  

UNION WA   Another magical November day dawned with mists over Hood Canal. The first order of the day was to take another look at some of Joe’s quilts and talk about the genesis of quilt design. Our assignment for the day: take a traditional quilt pattern and make it our own; or work on projects in progress.

The day disappeared as we merrily sewed and cut and ironed and laughed. After a delicious “Chef Traecy Dinner” we met in the sewing room for a final Show And Tell.

By the time Joe and I said Good Night to the retreaters, sewing machines and fabric were almost all packed up. There’s a rumor circulating that we will run a Joe Cunningham retreat again next year. Let’s hope we can make that happen.
