Getting Ready for Retreat

The Allatoona retreat starts tomorrow.  I won’t be able to spend the night at the retreat but I hope to be able to go for a while each day.  The theme of our retreat is Quiltville in the Mountains and we are featuring scrappy Bonnie Hunter projects.

The quilt for the retreat is going to be Sisters Choice – one of Bonnie’s free patterns.  I agreed to teach it before Bill got sick so I put together a story board for the blocks.  I am using green star points, various brights for the nine patches and white/black for the background.  Here is my board, ready for the trip to the mountains.

0314 Teaching Board

The top is all the pieces cut out for a block.  The one on the bottom left is a partly sewn block and the one on the right is a finished block.



  1. I love story boards. I'm teaching a mini class tomorrow and my story board is all ready to go. Have fun. Sorry you won't be able to spend the night but at least you'll get to go for part of the time.

  2. I always think I'd rather go home and sleep in my own bed and just 'retreat' during the day...I am a bummer like that Hope you have fun for as long as your there-retreats are a blast


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
