Quilt retreats are something I don't really get to do yet, six little kids and all. But today I am headed down to Bryce Canyon for a quilt retreat!
Although I don't think I will actually leave the hotel!
I have projects stacked up to the ceiling that will be done when I come home - maybe. I am teaching two classes:
Building Blocks from my Simply Charming Kids book which combines fat quarters with charm squares for a quilt that is really easy and fun to make.
and Sweet Baby Kate, named after one of my babies who isn't a baby anymore, which is my first single pattern with Northcott. In the pattern her it is shown in sweet, girly pastels. I have also made it in bright Amy Butler prints. So fun!
Then, there's more!
I will be giving a trunk show on March 2nd at another retreat!
This retreat is hosted by French Knots!
By then, I will have all these projects from the Bryce Canyon retreat to show off! You laugh, but I hope to pull it off, well, half of it anyway! I am in the middle of getting a new book ready for Market, so I will have many new quilts to show.
Kati from the blue chair, or more accurately, Kati from "from the blue chair," will also be giving a trunk show there. I am looking forward to seeing that. She does excellent work!
Now off to throw something into a suitcase and hope I don't forget something important!
