MQN Quilt Retreat

A few weeks ago my quilting buddy Margaret asked me to join her in attending the Michigan Quilt Network's first quilt retreat getaway. It was held at a State Of Michigan Dept of Natural Resources facility on North Higgins Lake. The weather was cooperative, and we were treated to a picture-perfect Michigan autumn weekend!


 Taking advantage of the lovely weather, I stepped away from my sewing machine for a bit on Saturday afternoon to talk a walk with my camera down by the lake. So peaceful.






Since our sewing time was limited to just Saturday, I decided to participate in the mystery quilt project. I  used Christmas fabrics, in a fresh red, lime green and pink color palette.




 I finished piecing the top this morning, but I think it needs one more border.  I'm not sure whether I will choose to quilt it for this Christmas or not. All in all, it was an enjoyable and productive weekend!

  2. Very cute; love the prints. My suggestion is to use a lime green print in another border.

  3. We do have some beautiful landmarks in MI. Good thing, because our climate is less than stellar! I used to belong to MQN. I was, once, a certified quilt judge for NationalQuiltingAsoc. Looks like you had a great time.
