Teton Patchwork Retreat

As mentioned in my last post, I was able to attend a quilt retreat last week.  We spent 5 days sewing up a storm inside the house while the real storms moved around outside!  At one point we weren't sure we would be able to make it home because a flash flood/mud slide closed our main highway.  We have been getting so much rain lately!
The retreat was wonderful! Each room was decorated in a different theme.  The sewing room is set up for 8 quilters.  Since there were only 7 of us, we paid $170 dollars for 5 days, 4 nights.  I thought that was quite reasonable!  We did have to bring our own food but we pooled everything together and cost was about $20 per quilter.
Here are some of the quilts hanging up around the home:

Absolutely LOVE this quilt.  The label says it was designed by the homeowner.

I had this cute quilt hanging above my bed.

Another stunning quilt made with gorgeous fall colors!  Notice the hangers on each quilt!

Little coasters for your drink.

A bit blurry since I was hanging on the stairs trying to take the picture.

This one in a Hoffman Challenge.  Supposedly there is a mistake in the quilt but no one seems to know where it is.

These little bitties are actual fabric minis.  Love the stain glass look with them!

Most days were overcast so we didn't get much of a view this time of the Tetons.

Our home away from home!
