VCQ Celebration 2014

This is a long overdue post.  VCQ's Celebration retreat happened at the end of April, and I'm finally getting around to writing about it.   We have this retreat every two years, with 2 days of workshops by both national and Virginia teachers.  It is a jam-packed weekend with vendors, a silent auction, 3 evening programs that include trunk shows, door prizes, block lotto drawings, and lots of fun!  This year's event was no exception; in fact, the committee did an outstanding job with their "Quilting is Timeless"/Dr. Who time travel theme. 

Above is a view overlooking the lake at the Smith Mountain Lake 4-H center, and the main activity & dining hall building.

Here you see the Quilting is Timeless Tardis created by the committee, and Monique & Marty in garb from one of their time travels.

The first night features show & tell of projects begun at previous Celebrations.  There were many quilts shown this year, quite of few of which were like the bottom picture, Jamestown Landing, which is one of Bonnie Hunter's patterns.  Bonnie was a teacher at the last 2 Celebrations, and again this year.  Everyone loves her scrap quilt classes.
