Greenbaum's Winter Retreat 2014

Last weekend, Paige and I went to the annual winter retreat in Newport for 3 days(Friday-Sunday). Greenbaum's Quilted Forest in Salem has the retreat every year. This was our 3rd retreat and we always come in on Thurs to enjoy the coast and to get set up. We had an ocean view room on the 3rd floor. The retreat has 76 quilters in a huge meeting room with ocean views working on their own projects. There were different demos given by teachers from the store during the 3 days. I worked on a quilt pattern by Karla Alexander called Savanna which uses one of her rulers with curves. I finished the quilt this week. Paige worked on a quilt pattern by Karla Alexander called Junk Jewelry. The weather was spectacular with sunny skies and warm temps. Saturday, they have a dinner for all the quilters. We are signed up for next year. Paige gives me an early B-Day gift by paying the deposit. Here are pictures of the retreat:
