Here is my version of last year's Amish Retreat exchange blocks. Everyone was to choose an Amish pattern. Somehow we ended up with some extras, so I ended up with a nice sized quilt. I have decided to donate my quilt to Standing Stones Retreat Center in Arizona. They counsel ministers and their spouses and military chaplains. When my friend Dave put out a list of items they were seeking donations for, one of the items was 12 quilts. I sent off an email immediately volunteering 12 quilts and within the hour Dave called me and said there was no rush because he knew my work and was willing to wait for it. The Amish Retreat Exchange Block Quilt is the first completed quilt. We had a lot of fun at last year's retreat. This year's retreat is June 19-22 and will be held at The Rural Thimble in Charm, Ohio.
