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 …

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 …

On our opening day of the 2017 Fall Into Quilting retreat, the day started with a heavy frost and some cold temperatures outside!  However, inside  the Wellness Center, the excitement was palpable.  Between greeting fellow quilters from previous years and introducing folks new to the retreat experience, friends catching up with each others lives, staking out table space, getting machines set up and picking up materials for the days classes, it was very exciting!

Diana class started their day with …

As you probably know by now, the 2017 Row by Row experience is set to kick off 21 June.  When I first learned this year’s theme was “On the Go!” I knew, almost immediately, what components would be included in my block.  It was probably the easiest design challenge I have ever had!  While I love visiting the other shops, picking up blocks and looking over the offerings at  each location, what I REALLY enjoy is hearing the story behind …

The focus here is on unmarked free motion background fill patterns to help you gain skill and confidence in your stitching abilities.  While it can be somewhat intimidating, none of the class participants appeared …

Our “Spring into Quilting” retreat kicked off this morning.   This is our first time hosting a quilting event at the old Campbelltown School and the setting couldn’t be more perfect.  While we have had a couple of gloomy and rainy days here in Marlinton, the sun came out this morning, pouring bright light into every corner of the schoolhouse, which provided perfect lighting for the quilters taking classes in “Y seams” with Debbie Walker and “Binding 101” with Joann Cordell.…
