I am finally rested from my quilting retreat. We had so much fun but I was exhausted!
Our Quilt Guild hosts this wonderful event every two years and I was asked to host the party for 150. I was so thrilled and honored that I agreed before I knew the dates; my wedding anniversary (oops). So for two years the committees would meet, plan and meet some more. We had some wonderful out of state and in state teachers and friends from all over joined us for three fun filled days. There were several vendors that set up mini quilt shops to give us an opportunity to fondle fabric and spend money ;)

We were given two challenges; a feathered mask and a quilt challenge. Both Mardi Gra themed. Here is a picture of the mask parade.
