Shipshewana, Indiana

And another wonderful retreat with Dear Jane friends is over. Rosemary would tell you that there are only 143 more days until we meet up again at The Farmstead Inn in the spring. There is so much creativity amid the gals in the sewing room. It's one gorgeous quilt after another. We had wonderful weather each day which isn't always the case in mid-November.

I worked on little quilts this time. The first one is from one of Jo Morton's clubs and is named Sisters. It will finish about 12" square when it is quilted and bound. Most of the fabrics are Jo Morton lines and the girls in the center are embroidered over the printed fabric images.

The second quilt is a little quilt that Cheri posted instructions for on her blog back in June. It was a fun one to sew. I used little pieces from my scrap bags but it didn't make a dent.

There were some great show and tell quilts, but it will take a little time for me to sort through them. The kids and grandkids are coming for Thanksgiving so there's work to do!

The Shipshewana retreat this November was my first and I plan to return each season. I did not get a chance to meet you, however, I did take a close look at your embroidery work on the Jo Morton piece and was very impressed! I thought that was a cute idea and a great way to use up scraps. Perhaps we can officially meet in April! Nice work.

this quilt is so sweet with the stitchery in the middle.
