Retreat Photos

This last weekend I attended a retreat in Oshkosh….We had a wonderful time and many quilts were finished…one of the best things that I used was a TV tray padded with quilted ironing board covering and a travel Rowenta Iron.  It made the perfect traveling mini ironing station…great for doing your little pressing like my 1″ triangles shown here.. Look at all those steam holes in this little iron.  Thanks Jeanine  & Rosie for sharing this with me and for the new ironing board, it worked wonderful for retreat.  This iron worked so well I got one for Carole for her birthday and she loved it too.  It is always hard to find a great gift that works so well.  I have a crappy towel protecting my TV tray ironing board here, but if you are rummaging this summer, you can now look for wooden TV trays to make for your quilting friends.

Now for the quilt show…I hope I can remember who’s quilt is who’s.  I only got about half of the quilts that were shown, sorry If I did’nt get yours posted, I didn’t get anything I made either…oh well…Enjoy what I have…

We should get the final proof for our book “Summer Gatherings” today…so maybe I can get some more photos on this blog for you soon.

    I bought my little iron like that over a year ago and just love it. Doesn’t Rowenta make the best irons!!! Wonderful quilts, those ladies do a wonderful job on their quilts.

    You can find the little wooden tv tables at Wal-Mart for around $8. I drilled a bunch of holes in the table-top, then layered: Insulbright, batting, Insultbright, then top fabric. The drilled holes help dispurse the heat. When not traveling with me, my table sits right next to my sewing table at home … it truly is perfect for piecework!

    Awesome quilts, are the tumbler pieces from your dye-cuts available on your website? I love them all sewn up. That little iron will be going on my birthday wish-list. Thanks for sharing your retreat.

    Hi Lisa… love the cover! That little wool mat looks adorable and I can’t wait for the book to come out :o) I can’t wait to see everything in the book, but I would love to see the wool projects first! BTW – I was in the store the other day… everything looks great and it is a shopping dream to go in there ;o)
