Almost halfway there! Grand Central Clue #6

Can you believe we are on Clue #6 of the Grand Central Mystery?   To be honest, I can’t believe we are almost to the end of February.  Time flies when you are busy.   Birds on a Wire released this past week, so there were many trips to the Post Office.  Thank you for all the order!    Then, Stephen and I had to take Bella in for a plasmacytoma mass removal, we are waiting on results but she is doing well, but needing extra care.   Bella just home from Surgery I spent two days in Manhattan, this week, and despite this morning's low temperature, you would think it was spring.  Union Square Park's grass is already coming back.  Union Square Park Today, I’m heading to Shippensburg, PA to teach at Shippenstitch’s Winter Sewfest. Which means, I will get home late Sunday night, only to turnround Tuesday to fly to Daytona Beach, Florida where I'm teaching six classes at American Quilt Society’s QuiltWeek.  

Clue #5 of Grand Central!

I can't believe we are already on Clue #5 of Grand Central Mystery Quilt Series.  I have a few things to share before giving a step-by-step pictorial on Clue #5's technique.  I hope you will follow along.  Last weekend , we had a fabulous Quilter's Choice Retreat at the Strong House Inn .   2020 Quilter's Choice at Quilting In Vermont We had a great group!  We had a blast being snowed in for a few days.   We had no trouble getting to the retreat, and thanks to DJ,  we had not trouble getting out, as he cleared off our cars.  We missed those who decided not to come, but we had tons of fun, and spent many nights up sewing.  A couple quilt tops were even completed.  My 2020-2021 Quilting in Vermont Season has been announced and registration is open.  The spots are filling up fast, so make sure to make your reservation as soon as possible.  Click on the Retreat title below for more information.

Grand Central Clue #4 & Strong House Inn

Yeah, it's Friday!   I'm at the Strong House Inn, in Vergennes, VT for my annual Quilter's Choice Retreat.   Mother nature decided to give us a snow storm for this year's retreat.  So, most of the quilters decided to travel to the area a day early, including me, and we beat the snow.   Yesterday we had the morning to do what we wanted.... So, most of us elected to check out some of the local quilt shops while there was a break in the storm.  Everyone got back before the storm kick up again.  Now, we are perfectly happy to stay in and sew! Amy and DJ, the Strong House Inn's Innkeepers, continue to make beautiful updates and improvements.  I love what they are doing! I slept so well the last two nights in a nice new comfy bed.  Those that know me, know how big of a deal this is, as I struggle to sleep while traveling.  This morning, we all woke to a fabulous breakfast. The ladies are ready to start Day 2 of the Retreat.  Last night they got started on the
