Grande Old Flag

What a wonderful week we spent at the Grande Old Flag event sponsored by Country Sampler in Spring Green, WI. Once again, Jeanne and her staff gave us a wonderful retreat experience. The theme this year was the Civil War and quilt designers Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts, Carol Hopkins, and cross stitch designer Linda Lautenschlager of Chessi and Me did not disappoint us with the best projects ever. I was able to complete three of the projects during the week. I'm still working on Carol Hopkins' basket quilt and the Gettysburg Sampler by Linda.
They will have to wait to be finished until I can finish up a wedding quilt and baby quilt that need to be done by the middle of July.

Here they are, our teachers for the week; Paul Barnes, Carol Hopkins, Linda Lautenschlager and Jeanne Horton. What an incredible group of smart, creative and fun!

Here are my three finished projects. When I am able to finish the last two, I will post pictures of those too.

The food was simply delicious. Selma must be a gourmet cook in her other life. Krista can handle her own in the kitchen too. Yum Yum!

S'mores with Root Beer Floats!

And cakes beyond compare!

Leigh and I shared our table with two wonderful ladies; Kathy from Wisconsin and Marie from Texas. And my oh my what beautiful quilters they were. They were an inspiration to us and we just kept sewing away. 

Here's the entire group. Everyone was so nice and fun...we had a truly lovely time!!!

Can't wait until next June to do it all over again.
