Kids quilt

Simple quilt using a wide border print
I like the foxes and the hedgehogs.

Turned out pretty cute so we are making kits at the shop!

Better late than never

Block five is called Broken Dishes, it came out on November 2

block Six, Shaded pinwheel,  and it came out on November 16

It seems to me that that the fabrics in the sticks and stones colorway really lend themselves to nicely shaded effects in the blocks. I think that the quilts coming from this will be really beautiful.

Post-retreat Monday

This weekend was our annual quilting retreat up at Shekinah Lodge near Waldheim.
It was such a good weekend. These are a few shots of the retreat center building that we go to.
On the road, driving to the retreat
It is a large timber frame building

A view of the ironing and cutting tables
The dining area
The view from where I was sitting
Up high in the back is the upstairs landing where the knitters had a very cozy nest. They were such a nice group who came this year for the first time. 
Lots of windows

One last finish on Sunday-- Jenn 's Counterpoint.  She did get the borders on too.
These were all on the main floor of the building.  They have a very cozy lower level too, with a huge fieldstone fireplace.  
I think everyone made a lot of progress on their projects.  I was sitting across from Jaclyn who pieced four baby quilt tops, and quilted 2-1/2 of them! 
I was able to get a lot done too, so hopefully I will show a few finishes in the next few days.
We already have the dates for next year-- November 21,22, and 23rd!
