Wanda Wonky Quilt Retreat

I am still recovering from our annual quilt retreat...getting back to my regular schedule.  The retreat was a blast and I wanted to share a few photos (for those that have not seen them on FaceBook yet.)

Our theme was Wanda Wonky and the Quilt Factory...(a play on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).  My daughter and niece came up with the theme and it was a lot of fun.

This is my daughter, Christy aka: Wanda Wonky!!
And Willy Wonka...
The "Wonky" group picture.
And our more serious side.

 We did lots of quilting...














Food, glorious food!!  Kara was an amazing cook and a gracious hostess and her family was great help (and entertainment.)
The food was amazing!
We have a tradition of doing a gift exchange.  Every one brings an item wrapped up and then each gets a number.  Number 1 chooses a gifts and opens it.  Number 2 can steal from Number 1 or choose a new gift.  This goes on until everyone has a gift.  The game ends when Number 1 gets the last chance to steal a gift.  

This year's game was much more competitive then ever before!!  No sympathy...even when the gift is "for my mother!"  For more pictures, see our FaceBook photo album.







We do a Show N Tell on Saturday night to give everyone a chance to see what we've been working on. To see all the projects, go to our FaceBook photo album.









It was a great time and we are already starting to plan next year's retreat!
Sneak preview...our theme will be Quilt Addiction.
