Fall 2015 Retreat Registration is OPEN! Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota and Kentucky

Fall is sneaking up on us and the details for the fall retreats are set! This year I have expanded to six quilt retreats – adding a third retreat in Ashland, NE and changing one retreat to Canton, SD. The registration forms are available on the Quilt Retreats page by clicking here.

NEBRASKA, IOWA & SOUTH DAKOTA: The new quilt is recognizable as a Tumbling Block Quilt with a 3D-like movement to it. We’ll piece this quilt using two simple blocks, a “Square-in-Square” and “Flying Geese” and NO “Y-Seams!”

Back by popular demand, we’re also offering the Weaver Fever Three-ver Quilt. We first used this pattern at a retreat in 2005 and it’s been requested by several women to repeat. Using strip sets of three values of two different colors, you can create a stunning 3D basket-weave masterpiece.

KENTUCKY: New and existing friends, laughter, great food, quilting and YOU are invited! Join us this fall as we sew either the Bella quilt or Marble Pools quilt with your choice of fabrics.  The Bella can be made in either a soft floral collection or warm fall collection.  The Marble Pools quilt is more contemporary and while the main four colors of the quilt are chosen, the “pools” are pre-cut and ready for you to design!

Spring Retreat Pictures

The March retreat is complete and it was a huge success with 19 scrap-happy quilters! Below are some pictures of completed Pineapple Square blocks. If you’re not already signed up, check out the ‘Quilt Retreats’ tab at the top to register. There are only a few remaining spots open for the May date and we’d love to have you!

Happy Easter!

Register for Spring Retreats

Registration is now underway for the Spring 2015 Quilt Retreats in Ashland, NE!

Click on the “Quilt Retreat” tab above to download the registration form. 

Do you have a ‘bucket list’ of quilts you have always wanted to make? If so, I bet the Pineapple Block is on that list. Creative Grids® has released a new ruler to make this block much easier to construct. At this retreat you will learn how to make the Pineapple Block using this ruler, which is included in the price of this quilt (a $22 value). You will construct 10” blocks from pre-cut scraps for a finished size of approximately 60 x 80”.

Or, plant the first seeds of Spring by sewing a colorful quilt using the Vera Cruz fabric collection from Paintbrush Studios. The finished size of this quilt is approximately 60 x 76”.
