The Best Time of The Year

Hello Everyone,

I should have said this is ONE of my favorite times of the year... I am on quilt retreat for 6 days with some of closest quilting buddies!! YAY!  It doesn't get much better than that.  Uninterrupted sewing time, food, friends, and fun for six whole days.  How great is that?

Let's take a peek into some of what has been happening...


Judy is working on this fabulous quilt with tons of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  It is turning out to be a real beauty.  This pattern is called Cinnamon and Ginger and can be found here.


I am working on the Bali Bed Runner in luscious new batiks!! This is just a sneak peek. I am having tons of fun putting this quilt together and will be teaching it at a retreat at the Strong House Inn coming up in March, 2014.  There is still room available in the retreat if you would like to learn this classic design.  Just click here for more information on the retreat.

 I will have this exact color way kitted in my shop for you, but until then you can purchase the pattern here.


Pat made this gorgeous Judy Niemeyer Feathered Star prior to the retreat and brought it in for show and tell.  Isn't it gorgeous.  She used Asian fabrics to complete it.  The pattern can be found here.


Joan was speedy on this quilt.  She made it in just one day and it is for her Grandson!!


Carmella made this improv quilt and just has to get the binding on and it will be done.


Sue was also speedy and finished this very elegant looking quilt.


We also had a demo from Deb and it was super.  She showed how to use the hexie tool


Jane finished here tree skirt, which she told me she is going to use as a table topper.  A dual duty quilt!!  

Tons more photos... this really was just a little peek, but I have lots more to show, so stay tuned.

Until Next Time....

Oh my! These projects are beautiful!
At first quick glance I thought the first picture was made using vintage hankies. So pretty!

Michele said...

Oh that sounds like so much fun. I can't wait to be able to go on a retreat myself.

Those neutral quilts are beautiful! I have not experimented with neutrals yet. I guess you can add that to my "to make" list :)
