The second Stitch Gathering Modern Quilt Retreat took place on Sunday. I feel like I have hardly drawn breath since then as I've been desperately battling to finish a load of commissions in time. Plus there was this 'thing' going on in Scotland you might have heard about. It was very distracting!
So I'm finally getting round to posting about our special day. this is the first of a few posts as I want to show you all the amazing ticket tote bags and also share and GIVEAWAY the last GOODY BAG! Plus I'll be adding a Linky so that you can read all the other blogger's posts in one place.
The photo above is of Julie's Cafe Apron class showing off their new aprons (including one suspicious looking man who I don't think actually made that apron!).
Here's some from the Show and Tell at lunchtime. Karen's made this giant quilt top at a workshop with Kaffe Fassett himself!
Here's Margaret's finished Modern Sampler Quilt from my evening course. I love her colour choices.
This is Sheila's simply stunning Farmer's Wife quilt!!
Here's Fiona getting started on her Apple Core EPP class.
This is the Lucky Dip, always a highlight! I'm clearly over excited at this point!
The Ticket Tote Bag Swap was a huge success...
More on this in a separate post.
Here I am teaching Patchwork Doggies in the afternoon. Do you recognise that redhead? Yes it's Jenny Fox-Proverbs, editor of Love Patchwork and Quilting!
Lastly here are my morning Freehand New York Beauty class - they did so well!
A huge thank you to all our sponsors, teachers, helpers and all you lovely Stitch Gatherers for being part of such a wonderful day! We'll definitely be doing it again next year!
