Comments on the Gathering…

Hey…thanks eveyone for the wonderful comments…and yes you can move in!  To answer a bunch of questions at once…The black quilt in the main dining room is call Wisconsin Whig Rose…I designed it for our Guild’s raffle quilt a few years back and I knew the woman who won it…I told her if she ever wanted to sell it please let me know…well, about a year later she needed a little money to help with some of her kids college education.  So I purchased the quilt from her and now it is mine….I just love this quilt!  It has ruched flowers in the center of those blocks and it is just special to me….The snowman quilt with the big snowflake is called Winter Garden…which is also a pattern both are still available, but you may have to call or write in your request in the comment section if you want to purchase these patterns….but maybe they are under Our Designs under Quilts…..You can tell that you southern girls are not used to snow…the airports around here hardly shut down due to snow…and besides…if we are having a blizzard, which hardly ever get to stay until it is over!  How bad is that?  We get lots of snow storms, but they usually only last a day and are over, but the airports don’t delay because of snow…Blizzard and strong winds yes…but not a normal snowstorm…You girls are just CHICKEN…to come here durring our winter…just admit it….we love winter here….it is a lot of fun and very pretty….LB

    Lisa, I can only say that the retreat is just fabulous and every quilt is something special. When I see the wig rose I must get it out to work on again. By the way is hand or machine applique? I just might have to plan a trip to the retreat. I would love to come in winter as there is nothing better than snow outside and sewing in! PattiO

    This has to be my favorite design of your’s yet! Will this be a pattern or kit for those of us who missed the BOM?
    Have a great time at Patsy’s. You have a super weekend to go with the snow storm coming. Maybe you can get snowed in there. Refresh!

    The quilts are beautiful! Please tell me how you hang them without rods or hardware showing.

    Thank you.

      We have pocket sleeves sewn on the back of the quilts. We use baseboard which are long and fairly thin…the baseboard is then nailed to the wall..the sleeve is a little shorter than the quilt and the baseboard is almost the same size as the quilt…LB
