Holiday Extravaganza Clue #14

Image
Sorry for the week delay.  Unfortunately, I had an unexpected emergency procedure that has put me on the injured list for a bit.  Last week, I wasn't in a state to do anything but get through the pain.  Thanks to Cheryl for letting the Holiday Extravaganza Facebook group know that we would have an unexpected bye week.  This week, I'm recovering, slower than I'd like (I'm sure no surprise to anyone), but I'm starting to have a little more energy each day. I look forward to the day I can get behind the sewing machine.  Hopefully, next week.

Let's talk about this week's clue.   A really fun block!

Today's post will be a little short.  Apologies, I've been under the weather most of the week.  I'm trying to push through today.  I had to do a little rearranging of blocks, but no worries, it really will not impact you, as you have to make them all anyway!

Retreat in Rangeley and Holiday Extravaganza Clue #12

Image
What a fabulous week!  I spent the week with friends in Rangeley, Maine at Threads Galore's Quilt Inn Rangeley Retreat Center.  We had a blast!  All of us are instructors, so it was nice to actually being the ones that got to sew!   We had tons of fun, shared ideas, and made great progress. 
I can't share all the progress, as some of our projects were testing ideas and designs for upcoming projects.  I was able to finally complete my Retreat quilt that I had to put on hold prior to MAQ and Hershey.   I love it!  I plan to get it photographed next week, along with Starflower Surprise (just you wait! FABULOUS!).  The goal is to send them both to the printer late next week.  I'm hoping to have them ready before Labor Day.
We had such fun at the Quilt Inn.  I can't begin to tell you how great it is to have such wonderful friends with shared interest.  I always love our time together!  
Several of you stopped by, and we loved catching up with you, as well as catching up on the…

Quilt Odyssey Wrap-Up and Clue #11!

Image
Another busy week!  Last weekend we wrapped up Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA.  Thank you to all of you that took my classes and stopped by the booth.  We loved seeing your finished projects and helping you start some new projects.  

Last Friday, I taught Majesty Lemoyne!  A combination of my Majesty Lemoyne Star and a modern Log Cabin!  It was a really fun class.  I love seeing everyone's fabric choices!

Last Saturday, I taught Periwinkle Swirl! A combination of the Periwinkle block and my Swirl Block.  Such fun!  For those that spend three days with me (thank you!) or even two, they all felt this was the easier class.  I have to agree, I love this quilt but I love how easily it comes together more!.  We had a great time in class.  When we wrapped up MAQ, just over 2 weeks ago, I challenged all of my MAQ- Oh-Hi-O My Star Students.  I told them if they completed piecing their entire quilt top and brought it to Quilt Odyssey by last Sunday, I would have a special prize for them!
