Quilting Retreat

Lucy's Kaffe Quilt
Up close, Kaffe strip quilt
Last weekend I snuck away with my bestie to Toodyay for a weekend of sewing. We were welcomed at the Avalon Homestead by Peter & Delveen and their fantastic home cooked  meals and a room set up ready to sew ourselves silly.

I started with a simple Kaffe strip quilt for Lucy,  the pattern was made up as I went. this will be Lucy's couch snuggle quilt for rainy days. On Saturday morning I started a log cabin quilt for our guest room. It is a mix of Liberty, Kaffe plain fabric and A Day in the Country stripes and spots. It is a very 'quiet quilt' compared to the one for Lucy.  Now all I need to do it find backings and quilt the tops, a bit of binding and we will be ready for winter.

I met some wonderfully creative people and Claire and Jemima from Sew-Along were fantastic.  I am definitively booking in for the next retreat in March.
