GOOD news! It is $50 less than posted. So it is $600.
I had planned on taking people on a cruise on Coeur d'Alene Lake but I cannot get it together with their schedule.
So we will go on a field trip to Coeur d'Alene in Idaho which is 30 minutes from me.We will visit the Coeur d'Alene Hotel for Lunch and the quilt shop there and here in the Valley (Hattie's).
Miss Tina is flying in to cook and bake for us again. Her food is always delicious and fun! We will give the recipes out afterwards as people always ask.
Some things are mine that I did for past retreats for fun and inspiration
Below is Kathy Sandberg's Dog story quilt. I am pretty sure this won awards. It is great!
Below is Tina's story quilt about her boys at the beach....
Mary Linfesty did the cow below. She does amazing work every single year and she is in charge of the block swap we do now and again.
Fuzzy but still fun. Laura did this one too.
Susan White is a wonderful artist and made these blocks to go with her quilt about them building their own home
I think Laura did this quilt about her Grandson. You can see that they love story quilts and they do them so well. Think of the Legacy they are leaving for their children and Grandchildren
Below is a story quilt by Sandy about going with her Mother...
