Quilting In a Winter Wonderland

Good morning all - we (Hearts To Holly) had our first Quilt Away Retreat weekend this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Everyone arrived safely Friday afternoon/evening and then the snow started falling.  What a great weekend to be inside sewing and planning, working on "old" projects and/or starting new projects. 

The hotel was great - sleep rooms were wonderful and the beds slept well - that's if you actually went to bed.

It was just so nice to work in the "sewing room" while watching all of the snow coming down and knowing that we did not have to go out in it.  And thankfully the hotel never lost power as lots of private homes did in the area.

It just could not have been a better weekend.  Thank you to all of the great quilters for their smiles, willingness to share and love of fun!

Over the next few days I will post some pictures of the amazing projects that everyone was working on.  It is always so inspiring to see the creativity of our quilters. 

Here are just a couple of the pictures to get us inspired for the day......

Louisa and Durenda both finished a Christmas kit that they had brought along.  It features fabric from Benartex.  Don't they make you want to start sewing now?

Cathy was working on a project featuring some beautiful fabric by Fig Tree Designs for Moda.  The colors were so warm and soft.  Can you tell that Cathy really did not want to "show and tell"  - we really had to coax her to be in front of the camera!

Great job Cathy!

Well that's it for today - will post some more pictures in a day or two - happy quilting!
