Here we are, balanced at the precipice of 2017 and 2018!  Can you believe?  I guess lots of us use this time to reflect on our accomplishments from the previous year as well as plan our projects for 2018.  I came across a Instagram entry this morning from a quilter I had not had the pleasure of meeting before.  On Kim’s website this morning, My Go-Go Life, she has put together a most comprehensive list of Block of the Month …

It’s that time of year when the rush to create and/or complete holiday projects begins.  It doesn’t mean, however, you have to feel stressed.  Friends and family appreciate the specialness of handmade gifts.  Anyone can order online gifts or pop into a store to pick something up, but to think of “that” person and create something special just for them, there is nothing like it.  I will confess…I have this little routine in the morning.  Before anyone else gets up, …

The last day of our quilt retreat was busy and busier!  Debbie’s class was a “Stacked Pinwheel” lap quilt.  It was, according to our infamous instructor, a complicated looking project but very easy.  From the look of concentration on everyone’s face, I wasn’t so sure about that statement but, nonetheless, the results were stunning!  As you can see, from the smiles on everyone’s face, they had a marvelous time!

The culminating event of our annual fall quilting retreat is our drawing for a grand prize.  During last year’s 2016 retreat, participants were asked to bring and donate one quilt block for each day of participation.  Those blocks were then pieced together by Debbie Walker (on the right) and quilted by Diana Beverage (on the left) to make a beautiful quilt for some lucky winner.  This year’s lucky recipient was Ann Myers.  Ann’s response to winning?  “Oh my gosh, I …

Debbie’s West Virginia bird panel class picked back up after lunch.  We had one completed quilt top to exhibit and the remaining participants continued on with their work.  Machines were humming and conversations had died down as folks really focused on completing their beautiful work.  The variety of colors in the borders and sashing were amazing.  Reds, greens, blues, yellows and golds were all used.

Diana’s afternoon class was entitled “Conquer and Divide”.  In this class participants were asked to …
