Quilt retreat at the Lazy M Lodge

I'm counting down the days now, school will soon be over and I'm looking forward to spending more time in the sewing room...yoohoo!  In the meantime, I was lucky enough to attend a quilt retreat a week ago with my quilt guild, the M & M's.  Here are a few photos of the projects that were in the works.


This is called Rat Race, you can find the pattern in this book.

My photography skills don't do this quilt justice...this pattern is called Intersections.

One of many finishes completed during the weekend...a happy scrappy postage stamp.

Two  more finishes, a block of the month on the left and scrappy squares quilt top.

Some of us were really thinking ahead!

A gorgeous Bali Wedding Star by Judy Niemeyer.  Can't wait to see this project come together!

An original in the works by our fearless leader, Linda.  Will take better photos next time we have our guild meeting. 

And this is what I worked on...I kid you not.  Two full days and I completed all the rings for my daughter's double wedding ring quilt.  Now I can move on to making the melons and corners and the process of putting the rings together begins...eek, I'm pretty nervous about this whole thing now!

The view from my window.  Take a peek at the Lazy M Guest Ranch for yourself.  Marcel and Randy took such good care of us!

We had a fire in our quilting area (and there's another project over the couch...a little baby quilt with a little chick on cute!)

Settling in on Friday.  We quilted in the guest house and stayed in the main lodge.  They have a beautiful Collie named Rusty who was happy to escort us to and from the buildings every day, as long as we gave him a pat on the head and a scratch behind the ear.


  1. Looks like a wonderful place to relax and quilt. Your wedding ring quilt is coming along great!

  2. Oh that does look wonderful and all the projects look terrific. I hope to attend a retreat one day.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
