Quilt Retreat Week...

It is Friday and I have been

Quilt Retreating all week!

This was my home base for the week...

Ralph the Quilting Kitty is here!

I spent most of my time getting back in the 

groove with free motion quilting...

On Wednesday we had a Tea Party...

lots of FUN!

I tried out a few new quilting designs...

I took a break from quilting and stitched

this photo pillow:

Photo Pillow  20 x 20 inches

A birthday gift for someone very special!

Ralph would like to show off his new Quilt:

Since he spent most of his time sleeping on my

free motion sandwich...

It is now 20% cotton and 80% cat hair...

Once I get a binding on it,

this is Ralph's comfort quilt...

If you look close, Ralph's name is stitched 

on the Quilt.

A week of stitching.....just what I needed!

  1. Super fun post. Beautiful quilting. Ralph the quilting kitty. 41 calves. Whew. loads of fun.

    BTW - This week I'm visiting BIL/SIL on Whidbey Island and thoroughly enjoying seeing all the new calves, baby sheep and other new spring arrivals. But count is far below what you have. I think you need to find a way to host a quilting/birthing retreat. I'd sign up. And be happy to pay to help care for the new calves and enjoy your amazing farm life.


  2. Sounds like you had a fabulous week at retreat! Love your quilting feathers--so pretty..hugs Julierose

  3. What fun! Love the pillow and Ralph's quilt! And 41 calves? OH My!

  4. What a great week! I love all of your free motion quilting...and it looks like Ralph does too!
    Wow! 41 Calves! That is wonderful!

  5. Your retreat looks like an awesome time. Wow I never heard of a cat going with someone to a retreat. I bet he got lots of attention from other retreat goers. I would have been visiting him a lot. Your free motion looks great. My longarm is in storage and I really want to try to get back to freemotion on my domestic again (I used to be pretty good at it but no more). By the way I LOVE your bright drunkards path quilt on the design wall in the first photo!!!!
