Summer Retreat

Since I generally sew alone in my quiet little space, an occasional getaway of quilting with a group of creative people can be especially energizing.  Not only can the experience be extremely fun and relaxing, but can also provide the needed  time to work on projects and share ideas. While I was away at the same retreat Pati wrote about in her last post, I had the opportunity to work on a quilt for my new grandson. My daughter requested that I make a fox quilt for him. How could I possibly say no when she showed me Fancy Fox by Elizabeth Hartman.

Here is my baby version of this design. This was a perfect retreat project, both fun and easy to make. It will be machine quilted with a pinkie backing, just perfect and snuggly for our new little guy. Thank you, Elizabeth for this adorable pattern.

Since this post is short and sweet, I will share with you some eye candy from Quilt 2017 by the San Francisco Quilt Guild. Please click here to see the images on The Plaid Portico, taken by Carol van Zandt. There are 3 separate posts so you will want to take time to enjoy them all.

Hope you all all enjoying a relaxing and creative summer. Until next time,
