Rah Rah Retreat in Berlin, Ohio

Amy Jones organized the retreat along with  Karen Maddox
Amy is from the Dover Ohio Guild.  
Quilters love retreats because we can sew, eat, and share ideas! This weekend two dedicated ladies, Amy and Karen, put together a  wonderful retreat at Zinck's Inn in Berlin.  There were about 27 ladies and one gentleman working on their projects . . . or on a mystery quilt!  As you may know, I love mystery quilts.

Barbie was busy working on her mystery quilt.  I, on the other hand, was busy taking pictures or visiting or eating.

Strip Poker:

It's not all work!  We played strip poker and guess who won a big jackpot of strips?  Barbie!

Quilt Projects:

Ruth showed me her English Paper Piecing project.  I found out that I can learn how to do this project at one of our local quilt shops.   Her blocks are so lovely and creative!  

Monica is a fellow blogger!  Check out her blog at

Sherri, who shared our table, is Barbie's daughter's neighbor in Dover!  Small World!

Look at that border!  Awesome quilt!

Judy is making this creative quilt for a granddaughter!  It turned out that Judy is a massage therapist!  During the retreat, Barbie and I had the best chair massage ever from Judy.  What a treat!

Teresa is a member of my quilt guild in Streetsboro.  I always enjoy visiting with her!

Mystery Revealed:

Not sure what the name of this mystery quilt really is, but I would call it a weaved fence.  I like it!  

All good things must come to an end:
