A Retreat Update



 
On Wednesday I travelled to Gulf Shores, AL to present a trunk show for the Island Quilters Guild.  It was so much fun and I ran into a few friends from Mobile who had attended the retreat I led last August.  I asked whether any of them had finished their Pineapple Nine Patch.  One girl said she had and had given it away as a wedding gift.  She sent me this picture - I am blown away!!  Wish I could have seen it in person - it's beautiful.  Well done Mary!!
 
I am going to be leading a 2 day workshop for the Island Quilters next week, and we'll be doing this same project.  The snow birds are in town and we have a good group signed up.  Can't wait to see what these new quilters create.
Have a great Friday, I'm off to work :).

Adelle mentioned at the Guild meeting last night that they saw you while they were on their shopping trip. This A&E drug store shop sounds like a place Faye & I need to visit to shop!

Beautiful quilt! I love the colors she used. And I'm really loving your new blog header! Too cute.

Who made that quilt? I'm trying to remember the colors everyone was using and even went through my pictures and can't find one. I love the colors! But honestly that pattern would be beautiful in most any fabric choice.
I hope life is going well with you and the new job is lots of fun.
