Food assignments for the retreat included everyone bringing an ingredient to go into our “Stashers Stew” and “Sister Salad” for dinner. The night came alive with a skit by Kim and Amy. They wrote and sang these lyrics to the tune of “Never Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift:“I’m really gonna love our quilt retreat, Spending the time talking and sewing all night.
And we will hide away and find our peace of mind With some quilts that are much cooler than mine. Ooh, we are going to stay up all night. We will always, always, always shop together. We will always, always, always stash together. You go talk to your friend, talk to my friends, talk to me But we will always, always, always sew together.”
Anne M. shared tips for healthy eating and made a great green smoothie. A balanced diet was achieved with Bobette’s Swedish cinnamon twists and bacon wrapped yucca bites. Yum.
The recipes will be posted in the ‘recipe’ section of the site soon.

Here are a few other projects that the quilters worked on:
