    Show and tell is the best part of a retreat/guild meeting/sew day!

    Thanks for sharing the photos. Looks like you all had a lot of fun! I love the too that looks like lattice/chains. Is that one of your patterns. I’d like to find out what the name of it is. Thanks.

      Should have been ‘top’ instead of ‘too’.

    I love all the show and tell! Your blog is so inspirational. I love everything you do. I am curious thou if you happen to have the name of the pattern or designer for that halloween embroidered one that is in the colours, not the scroll. I already have the scroll pattern by Crabapple Hill. I haven’t seen that other one before and i am a huge Halloween fanatic. Especially love the wool applique from show and tell. Thanks for sharing.

    Lisa, will you be posting an official corrected pattern for Block 24? I can probably figure it out, but I love to work from an accurate pattern. Thanks so much!

    Lisa, I love the Christmas quilt with candy canes for the first block. Can you tell me the name so I can look it up on your website. Thank you thank you!

      That’s a pattern called Christmas Traditions by Farmhouse Threads.

    In reading the other comments, I see part of my questions have already been answered, Block 24 – MY FAVORITE OF ALL OF THEM!!!! by the way!!! looks like you have correction notes on it, but I see that you have already noted a correction is coming. Thank You. On the correction of Block 16, will you have a “color” version as well?
    I went to print it, and it was not like the original, and was only B/W. I don’t want to be a “whiner”, but it would be nice if all the patterns were the same when printed out. So they will look nice inside the cute pattern book I am putting them into!! Thank you so much, this is the most adorable Christmas blocks, and I hope I have this quilt completed and QUILTED by next Christmas………..no way thats happening this year!

    What is the pattern for the cream background quilt with the wool flowers? I know it must be a PG design??

      I think you are talking about the summer block of the week freebie quilt that Lisa did last summer? I believe it is called A Penny Gathering. The lady holding it did a lovely job. Beautiful design, Lisa.

    If anyone from this retreat can give me the name of the quilt in red and white with the embroidered birds on it, I would be thrilled. I think it is one of my favorites!
