Quilt Camp: Machine Applique, Food, Pontoon, ETC

Monday brought about our first real adventures. First of all, five woman decided to all get ready to leave the housed by 9:00, using the same bathroom. I am still amazed that they accomplished it. We headed for White Bear Lake and Bear Patch Quilting for a morning class of machine applique. The group's experience level was quite varied, but everyone managed to have their applique done by the end of the day.

We followed the class with lunch at the Decoy in White Bear Lake. Everyone enjoyed it so much that we lingered for about 2 hours. Then we headed for the lake and a very enjoyable pontoon ride captained by the Captain.

Once we returned home time was provided for everyone to work on their individual projects. Each person also cut the bias binding for the table runner project scheduled for Tuesday. We finished the evening with a fire and s'mores. (Yes, it was a cool evening for summer, but the fire and some fireside quilts kept all the Southern belles warm.)
