As many of you may know, I retired in January of 2011. 

When you get to an age and a stage in your life when you can retire, you find that lots of your friends are retiring too.  So, what better gift can you give someone than a quilt. I entitled this one "It's Finally Here" and will be giving it to a friend of mine at her retirement party this Sunday.  I am happy for her that she is able to retire and I am happy that I am retired and have more time to make these kinds of gifts for my friends.  The beautiful hand dyed fabric is the work of Chris Daly of Dye Candy.  You can see a selection of her beautiful fabric at

Retreat News

The top photo is our group from last year's retreat at Covenant Harbor in Lake Geneva.  The second photo is a shot of the pier at Covenant Harbor.  This is a beautiful place to be in May and we always have a GREAT group of quilters.  The majority of them are former WQI members but we always welcome new folks into this group.

This year's retreat is scheduled for May 18-20 and I have just been informed that we still have two rooms available.  Contact a quilting friend and come join us.  Pricing is listed on the attached form.  And just so you know, the food at this facility is absolutely fabulous.
