Sew Free Retreat

7 May

I attended my first Quilting Retreat ever this week!  What a wonderful time we had!!!  My goal was to a.  Bond with my  

 sewing machine, b. Finish projects, and c.  Enjoy everyone and everything. It was a huge success and I highly recommend “retreating” to you. My finishes included binding one full sized quilt  

  one charity quilt, a Cindy Needham thread play practice piece, and my Bluebird Tea Party wool on cotton appliqué (look at that awesome Bluebird wool I dyed).  

  

 Stitching out several labels and using embroidery software to quilt quilting motifs (See the one block sample of Primitive Pieces by Lynda Hall – Wedding Day Quilt). It’s so wonderful to accomplish things!  This retreat was held at the Charlie Elliot Nature Center in Mansfield, GA. The facility and staff was top notch. The beds are rock hard so plan ahead and take a mattress pad. And no, it wasn’t free, but we were free to sew to our heart’s content and the only schedule to follow was for meals.  Should you ever go to a retreat at the Charlie Elliot Nature Center be sure to request the Scones with each breakfast served. Yum!
