1. My Retreat Quilts

    I shared a couple of my friends' retreat quilts last week, so I thought I would share a couple that I pieced at Quilter's Cabin. The one on the left will probably be donated to West Houston Quilter's Guild for a charity quilt. Our guild regularly donates quilts to Project Linus and to nursing homes. The one on the right does not have the borders attached, but it is going to be a wedding gift for m…Read More

  2. Sharon’s Quilt Retreat

    Because I really felt the need for one more retreat per year (two just aren't enough), I scheduled a retreat for this week at Quilter's Cabin and invited ten of my favorite quilters.  There were only six of us including myself who were able to come, but we had a great time. Jody, my best friend of over 40 years, won the imaginary prize for most prolific quilt piecer. She got several put together…Read More

  3. Retreat Fun

    I just got back from a retreat at Quilter's Cabin in Tomball a couple of weeks ago and even though there were only four of us, we accomplished a lot. We worked on some charity quilts as well as quilts for ourselves. I made the quilt on the left for my bedroom. Here are a few pictures. We don't exactly fix our hair and dress up at retreat, but I think I managed to get pictures of everyone in regula…Read More

  4. Our Last Retreat at Cabin Too

    The owner of Quilter's Cabin is moving back into her log home in which I and my friends have had the pleasure of retreating the past few years. The good news is that Diane still has the original Quilter's Cabin available for retreats. At our last retreat, some of us were working on some very special quilts that will go to women who are in a recovery program in Florida that is close to my heart for…Read More

  5. August Quilt Retreat

    Quilters never get tired of making quilts, even in the heat of August.  My friends and I had another retreat at Quilter's Cabin the first week of August and I got to work on another wedding gift quilt. I still have to add the borders, but you can see the partially finished project on the left. Jody was the "winner" with the most quilts pieced and Barb made good progress on her Prismatic Star quil…Read More

  6. Piecing Quilts is My Passion

    In an earlier post, I talked about a quilt retreat with my quilt bee at Quilter's Cabin and posted pictures of the six of us at work piecing quilts.  When I'm not piecing T-shirt quilts, I like to piece quilts for myself or just for the sheer pleasure of using a new fabric or pattern.  My friends always tease me about how many quilt tops I piece at retreat, but sometimes that is the only time I …Read More

  7. Quilt Retreat

    I'm often asked if I ever get tired of sewing and the answer is a resounding NO!  When I mentioned to a male friend that I was going on a quilt retreat, he said sarcastically, "Oh, that sounds like fun."  I told him that it was a lot more fun than he envisioned.  Besides being able to sew in pajamas if we want to, we have a whole day of sewing with no interruptions other than to eat or refill o…Read More
