Black Hills Quilter's Retreat

Ehnthusiasm was the word of the week for the Black Hills Quilters. I don't know when I've seen a more ambitious bunch, except perhaps the Frontera Quilt Guild in Harlingen.
Students designed and stitched up a storm of stars in the Sensational Stars class. When I returned from lunch, there they were sewing. When I stopped by before dinner, they were still there. I think that many sewed all night long!

Evening was for fun festivities, like a good, old-fashioned sing-a-long, lead by conference co-chair, Doris Fritts. The theme of the conference was Quilting Safari, and here she is belting out her quilterly rendition of the Beach Boys hit, "Surfing Safari".
