I have had the craziest week! First, a retreat. Teach a few classes. Make some friends. Meet some cousins. Head home. Get a phone call. Daughter in labor. Hurry and re-pack. Leave for New Mexico. Tend grandkids. Meet new grandson. Come home, bringing grandkids with me. Play, play, play. Cut more kits. Ship. Guest Post. Post. WHeww.
(I have a guest post over on Stash Manicure today. Be sure to check it out.)
Last Wednesday my sister and I left our homes in northern Utah to go to a quilting retreat at Ruby's Inn in Bryce Canyon. That's about 4 hours away. We met two more sisters there, one from Mesa, Arizona and one from St. George, Utah. There were about 250 quilters at this retreat, and boy did we have fun! Every noon and night we were treated with a trunk show from some wonderful quilters! I taught 2 classes, and there was plenty of time to work on other projects as well. It was nice to be at a retreat and not be in charge! I actually retreated!
Here are a few photos that I snapped with my phone. These cute ladies are "Two Peas in a Pod." They did a trunk show for us one night. It was fabulous! I love their designs--so fresh and so fun.
Here is a darling little "Block of the Day" project that was offered by one of the vendors--Main Street Quilt Cottage. They even used a teeny tiny bit of one of my fabrics from the Thistledown line in their kits. I joked that they should have at least acknowledged me somehow--and they put my card on the quilt!! (Can you spot the Thistledown?)
Now this was one of the best parts. One of my students from last year brought her FINISHED project from the class I taught. Isn't LuAnne's version of "Trellis" fabulous!!?
Now because I have had such a crazy week, I think we need another prize drawing! Don't you? So this time lets give away some patterns. How about a collection of five of my newest designs.
That's a $58 PRIZE to one lucky follower. Sign up as a follower, and leave a comment so I can enter you in the drawing. Then be sure to check back to see who the winner is! I will choose a winner on Friday the 18th--at noon.
