I spent the week in Idaho
When we arrived...
SNOW on the ground !
We quickly got settled into our room...
Lots of natural light fills the sewing room...
Lots of inspiration here !
This is my home away from home for the week...
I am free motion quilting this
butterfly table runner...
I faced the edge for a clean finish...
This butterfly runner is nearly 6 feet long
and will fit nicely on our kitchen table.
Just beyond the trees is Twin Lakes
Here are just a few of the projects
the Quilt Retreaters are creating:
Larissa is a newbie quilter
and just learning to use a quarter inch foot
and do precision piecing on
traditional quilt blocks
This is the start of her Sampler Quilt
Donna's Table Mat
Penny's Baby Quilt
Cheryl's Bias Square Quilt
Each night the Fat Quarter Fairy
would come by and leave hand made gifts
by each sewing machine.
I brought along my hand pieced
hexy runner tops...
I layered the runners with batting and felt
and stitched them down to the felt...
Stitching in the Ditch...
Just need to trim off some of the felt around the edge and give it a press.

We had lots of Quilty FUN...
Now, back to the real world !
