Amicacola Quilt Retreat

We got up to Amicacola Thursday night.  I drove by myself since Danielle was not feeling up to going.  Of course it rained the whole way up there.  Here is the room when we got there.

On Friday morning it looked a lot different, with 48 women busy at work.  The theme of the retreat was the 50’s.  We did another mystery quilt by Debbie Caffrey.  She writes wonderful mysteries and I highly recommend her quilts.

One of the side projects was to make an apron and decorate it however they wanted to.  On Saturday night we had a fashion show of aprons but first I have to show you what Maetha and I looked like.  We were Laverne and Shirley for the weekend.

Pat brought her Mother’s sweater clips and loaned them to me.

Aren’t they perfect!  She also loaned me the sweater.  I made the skirts and two of the people attending also had poodle skirts but I didn’t get a photo of them.  One was yellow and the other pink.

Here is the apron parade.

And here is the winner.

She received a gift certificate for the shop and an apron from Moda.

I will show more tomorrow.



  1. I hate that I missed the weekend, but I love your black poodle!

  2. looks like a fun time was had by all!

  3. What fun -- I love the Laverne and Shirley duo -- y'all looked cute! :)

  4. Wow, Maetha looks just like me. I sent the picture to my sister and she even said so. She knew it was me because I don't have a poodle skirt. I'd like to know more about her. I follow your blog all the time.
    Thanks, Etty
