Memories of my summer quilt retreat :)

So many happy memories to share... my bestie Connie and I planned a week of quilting fun and here are some highlights and details for you to enjoy.  Plan your own quilt retreat with your quilty friends :)
Me n Connie

Birthday quilty shirts on and beach approved!
First we pinned this quilt....
All pinned here but it took some effort from all of us :)
We had to touch up iron the backing... thanks honey for the nice tile floor to lay the quilt tops out on!
then Connie, me and my dd all pinned the quilt
Brandi put the last pin in!
Making quilt tops that we both got pinned and pictured....
Sister quilts
From a pattern called Picnic in this book!
And this great fabric from Basic Grey for Moda "PB&J" line... jelly rolls :)
Connie used cream background and I used tone on tone whites for my background... LOTS OF FUN!

We also celebrated birthdays!  First was Connie's on the 3rd, me on the 4th, my honey on the 20th and my dd on the 26th :)  July is a fun month in this home :D





We also squeezed in shopping and beach time... and of course a snooze in the hammock :)


Finally my dd and all of us worked on a quilty puzzle that we mod podged and sent home with Connie as her personal souvenier :)

Hope you enjoy this quick trip through our quilty week!

Have a blessed week :)

  1. Love it! My sister and I have "sister quilts" of my mom and her sister's childhood dresses. They were made by my grandma and great aunts. Ty for reminding us to keep this tradition up!
