Dancing With The Stars

Dancing With The Stars is the name of our newest pattern.  It was the Mystery Quilt at our retreat last week.  Here's a shot.
 In trying to describe the Accent/Inner Border fabric to our retreaters without giving away the pattern, Liz told several people that the Accent/Inner Border "dances" throughout and around the blocks, touching the background.  We looked at each other and knew what we would name this quilt pattern.  It is a very simple pattern that looks complex.  Nearly everyone making the throw size finished their top and those making the Queen were close too.  The pattern is now available.

Linda's version...I like what she did with the stripes in the corners.

Here's Judy ironing a block by the "Little Shop" corner.

Lindsay used batiks.....

We decided to hang our quilts from the the historic flavor of the Eureka Inn Lobby.

Another balcony shot.

Connie's version featured a bird print.

My childhood friend Maralee came.  Here we are: Me, Sydney & Maralee.

Donna's was stunning!  Black background really set off her "bling" fabrics.

Everyone gets a large table area to sew....but of course, as quilters we tend to fill up every single inch of it!

Retreats are so much fun!  Our next retreat will be held at The Historic Eureka Inn , March 8-10, 2013. As sign-ups have already started you might want to reserve your spot.  We expect this retreat to fill.  We will be sewing in the front ballroom.
You can email or call the store (707) 444-9962 to reserve your spot.

Tomorrow I'll tell you all about our Caribbean Cruise January, 2014.
