BIG NEWS! This week, I will be going away for a quilt retreat with Christine and Carol! We are heading up to White Birch Lodge near Elk Rapids, Michigan for the annual Beaver Island Quilt Retreat with Gwen Marston!
This is my first time going to this retreat--Carol and Christine have been a few times before so I am the "Newby". I am very excited! I have a couple of Gwen's books and am fascinated by her liberated quilts. I am bringing a bin of fabric, my sewing machine, my camera and sewing supplies for 4 days of quilty bliss and two days of travel. I have a project in mind, inspired by a workshop I took at the Russian quilt show in Ailsa Craig a few years ago. I never did finish that project but hope to make my own liberated version on the retreat.
Gwen will be teaching us how to make "Small Studies". I will take lots of pictures and do a blog post about my retreat when I get back.
In the meantime, I have to go and pack!
