Spring 2014 Quilt Retreat

This Spring we take a trip to the cotton town of Savannah, Georgia, a revolutionary city dating back to 1733. A vibrant town with historic charm, yet an innovate and foreword-thinking city filled with technology, art and music.

What is your style? A warm, relaxing evening under Savannah’s stars or dressing up for a black tie affair in Savannah’s city center? For the Spring 2014 quilt retreat, you can take your pick!

The cost includes six meals starting Thursday night, two nights lodging (double occupancy), pattern and fabric to make Full size quilt. You can also upgrade to a Queen or King size quilt on either of the quilts.

Fall 2013 Quilt Retreats

With a heat index over 100 degrees in Omaha today, it’s a great time to think about a cool fall quilt retreat.  I’ve got the dates and locations secured and registration is now open for all five retreats! Click here to be taken to each Registration Form.

At the retreats in Ashland, Nebraska and Inwood and Indianola, Iowa we will be making a whimsical hometown quilt by fussy cutting a panel from Terri Degenkolb’s collection Around Town.  We will start by fussy cutting 20 scenes from this charming panel. We will add different accent blocks to each scene and will frame your own hometown with a picket fence border to complete a full size quilt.

In Kentucky, we will be sewing one of my favorite quilts, the Tennessee Waltz using rich floral, striped and textures.

Spring 2013 Quilt Retreats

At first glance, you may think these cards are playing a difficult trick on you, but if you cut and sew its patches systematically, you’ll find it goes together with no problems whatsoever. We are using the “Wingin’ It” fabrics by The Buggy Barn, which will make this quilt a fun, whimsical project to complete with your friends!
