Quilt With Us

What do Roseburg, Oregon, Vicki Bellino, Rice Hill, adjoining rooms and 2 cars packed full of quilting supplies have in common?

They are all the components of a mini quilt retreat! Judy, Laraine and I live in Vancouver, WA. Our friend Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek Quilts lives in northern Calif. We were e-lamenting the fact that Vicki was too busy to make her usual drive north to visit us, when suddenly it dawned on us that she didn't have to make the whole drive! We'll meet her halfway!

When I called the motel to book it, I explained we had sewing machines and lots of laughing planned - they found us adjoining rooms at the far end of a corridor so we won't disturb the other guests. The cars are packed to the gills and we leave this afternoon - woohoo!

Hummm Karen will be out of town. I think we should have our own quilting retreat preferablly in Ohio at the warehouse where they stashed all this gorgeous material that I would love to get my hands on.
Have fun take pictures drive safely, oh and if a big green semi truck comes up behind you, you might want to move over, the BF has been gone for three weeks now and will be coming home this weekend.

Stephanie, anything that doesn't get finished this weekend will be dragged along to Chehalis!

Wellllll, we haven't actually packed it all into the car yet - we shall see! Three of us in a Camry might be a challenge. Vicki, on the other hand, is driving alone, so she brought the bulky stuff like extra tables.

Don't know how you got all your quilting supplies in 2 cars.....I went to a retreat a couple years ago...and barely got all my stuff in the back seat of a crew cab pickup! Have a great time and be sure to post pictures of the fun and the quilts!
