Swiss Finishing School

I do a retreat in New Glarus at the Chalet Landhaus. New Glarus' nickname is Little Switzerland. The Chalet Landhaus is shaped like a Chalet. I don't teach anything. Participants are to bring their UFO (Un-Finished Objects) to finish. Thus I call my retreat Swiss Finishing School.
(hee hee)
Ann is working on a disappearing 9-patch in these yummy batik colors.
Dorothy is working on blocks that her mother left her. They were not perfectly pieced so she is appliquéing them to a base block.
Kris is making this quilt for a cancer auction that she regularly participates in.
Swiss Finishing School is usually held the first week-end in February. You can find out more about it if you click here.

thanks for sharing photos-all beautiful-I love that idea of appliquing the vintage blocks to a base piece when the blocks don't line up-good tip

Hi Lois! It was nice to meet you last night and also the whole group! Margot and I had a very nice time and plan on returning and joining next time around. Its a good fit. We like all the variety. I became a follower of your blog. Mine is I am also a rug hooker and I started it this way and later I am having trouble changing the name. It is more than rug hooking :). See you next month. Laura

It was nice to meet you last night at the Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists meeting. I took a look at your blog and you are right it is about more than rug hooking.
