The quilt retreat experience is all about fabric and friends.  Usually, I have the opportunity to join in three or four a year, with 6 friends at a home, 30 at a small summer camp, and 300 at a conference center-hotel complex.  If you haven’t gone to one, think about saving up, or organize one yourself.  Whether you are on a budget or interested in an all-inclusive splurge, there are plenty of options.

I just returned from the Quilters of South Carolina retreat. This state guild brings together quilters for communication and education; it is an amazing, creative, talented group! My class was about precision piecing and the perfect ¼” seam allowance.

 

Our fabulous teacher made everyone in the class a design board so we could lay out our blocks – it was indispensable!   I thought our Quilt Blocks quilters would like to make one to lay out your block to check piece size, orientation, and stay organized in a small space.  This one is 14”, just right for a ...
