Guess what?

Guess where I am going today for the weekend?   Can you RETREAT!  Yes! Lucky me I am leaving to go to my favorite retreat place…Homestead Cabin Retreat…in no where (Hillpoint) WI…no just is a perfect place for a retreat house…no cell reception, just in the middle of farm country….I love going to Patsy’s and hope that our retreat house has the same inviting atmosphere where quilter’s gathering for what they love best!   I should be packing, instead of being on this computer…but I just put together my Settler’s Pride BOM to finish the last block and start the borders…here it is …i will be working on it this weekend along with another little quilt for Featherweight Club…just thought those of you doing this would want a peek…I sewed the wool blocks together with 1/2″ seam allowances on my machine using my walking foot…then pressed the seams open.  This worked so good I think MY next BOM that I design will be wool on wool…it is so fun to work with…FYI you will not hear from me for a few days…but I will report back on Monday of what fun I’ve had…LB

  1. I just knew it would be beautiful all sewn together and I can’t wait until mine is that far.
    This has been a fun BOM and oh so easy to put together and stitch. I love the BIG pieces…so much easier to stitch than the itty bitty wool pieces. My only dilemma will be the quilting of this beauty.

  2. The Gathering looks so inviting. I hope to visit some day! The black shelf on the wall — did your husband make that? Or where did you get it? I love all the quilts on the wall and on the beds. I look forward to viewing more pictures of it in weeks to come…
