Quilting Retreat

 Last week was our annual Club Quilt retreat....and once again it was a wonderful weekend with great company and lots of creativity flowing!

I took lots of projects along (I was a little over-ambitious as usual) but spent the entire weekend working on a quilt for Miss 13's newly re-decorated room. I'm loving how it's turning out and can't wait to get it off to the quilters!

The fabric I used is Riley Blake, Sugar & Spice and you can find the pattern here at the Quilted Fish
The tutorial is only for a small quilt so I made mine four times the size of the original pattern....hence the amount of time it took to make....well worth the effort though don't you think?

Until next time....


  1. I love the red and aqua palette! And what a great pattern! Miss 13 will love it!

  2. That is going to look great when quilted!

  3. So pretty, and perfect for a 13-year-old girl!

  4. that is so effective and such lovely colours... definitely worth the effort ... fabulous...

  5. Looks fantastic and I think will be a great addition to a 13 year old's room.

  6. Love how it's turned out Trace, just beautiful.

  7. Oh how beautiful! I love that fabric and the pattern works with it so well.

  8. I'd like to invite you to join me at the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

    I hope to see you there!
