I spent a delightful weekend with a group of talented quilters at the “Piecemakers” Retreat in Roxbury, Pennsylvania. I learned so much from them and they were all so generous with their knowledge. While there I worked on a baking themed quilt for Sister, who is a terrific cake and bread maker. She came up from Georgia to stay with Lincoln so I could go to the retreat when my regular sitter had an emergency out of state. As her birthday is in a few weeks and I had planned to make this quilt for her I decided to move it up so that I could give it to her while she was here. She loved it….and so did Paisley, her little Yorkie. I think Sister will have to share it with her. Happy Early Birthday!!!

It’s the quiet before the storm….storm of sewing, that is! The Quilter’s Retreat started yesterday afternoon and while I didn’t get here till early evening I tried to catch up by sewing until 11 pm. And now, as usual, I am the first one up. I just can’t seen to sleep past 5 am. It’s kind of nice in the quiet minutes before all the machines fire up. I can’t wait to see what everyone is doing! More to come.

Our first Block of the Month groups continued yesterday working toward their sampler quilts. We are almost there as we did block #9 and #10 – the Virginia Reel and the Dutchman’s Puzzle. These were a little more challenging than some of the others we have done but as you can see everyone did great! We only have two blocks left and then we will start putting them together. I can not wait to see them come together and see how everyone’s fabric choices turn out. Stay tuned for more next month. If you are interested in giving quilting a try we have another Block of the Month group starting on June 18th. We have two seats left so register now if you would like to learn or improve your quilting skills. Click here to register.

I finally got Lincoln off of my quilt long enough to finish it. I love it! I found the coffee saying fabric at a quilt show and then found the cups and beans fabric at Michael’s. I love how it turned out. A FUN quilt!

Now don’t you wish you had come to paint with us yesterday? Just look at these amazing Barn Quilts that we painted yesterday at The Studio. These ladies did awesome work on 33″ and 24″ Barn Quilts. And the top right one is the first round barn quilt that I have done. I love them all! Watch for another class coming soon.

Our first Block of the Month quilt is completed. At least my sample is done. The first two classes who have been making these blocks will be finishing theirs in the next couple of months. They have almost finished the blocks and will be learning how to put them together. This has been such a fun project. The “Quilt As You Go” method is a great way to learn to quilt on a domestic sewing machine. If you are interested in learning to quilt or maybe you quilt but would like to learn a new technique then this is for you. We have a new Block of the Month session starting on Saturday, June 18th. Don’t you want to join us? Check it out here and register early. We are limited to six for these classes so register early.
