Home Again, Home Again

Home from a weeklong quilting retreat.  It was great fun and wildly productive.  Even so I'm happy to be with my sweetheart and mutts and happy to be sleeping in my own bed.  But it certainly is quiet and sedate around here--hardly the creative beehive of the retreat.  

This is the sort of thing I miss:  Sharona, the owner of a wonderful quilt store in Berkeley CA called New Pieces, posing in front of her design wall wearing the dress she later actually incorporated into the quilt behind her........

Bobbi Finley and I met at this annual retreat twenty or so years ago, and we've been sewing together pretty much continuously since then.  The 2011 retreat was no exception.  We planned, cut, and stitched two quilts and made a lot of progress on a third.  No wonder I slept 12 hours the first night home.


  1. Greetings from Taiwan! I love your quilts and own your book "Tile Quilt Revival". I'm currently working on the Birds in the Branches pattern. I've fused the top and am kind of stuck as what I should do next. Would you mind giving me some suggestions? Here's the link to my post:

    Thank you!
