Every year we go to the beautiful Jamberoo Valley for our Quiltsmith Retreat. This is a weekend that only involves eating, sleeping, drinking and sewing. A bit of talking happens too. We have an almost continuous Show and Tell. The shout "QUILT ON THE FLOOR" goes up and the pack races to admire. Here are some photos. Mark 2013's retreat in your diary now, its always the weekend after Mother's Day. (17 - 19 May 2013)
From this to this.
I love it when two versions of the same quilt turn up.
This is how Linda Butcher (staff member and teacher extraordinaire) treats her beautiful hand applique block.
The perfect quilter's table.
What to do with that Dutch Fabric.
The creative spark - in the beginning.
I finished one, my Double Z quilt. Notice the word finished!!!!!
I also finished my Applique Project No. 4. Another one for the quilting pile. Jamberoo was all about finishing things for me this year.
This picture epitomises the "Travelling Quilter".
Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a fun weekend.
