VFW NYC Quilt retreat

 This week I am hosting my Annual VFW NYC Retreat here in my home, hosting 8 quilters from the US and Canada!  Day one is spent on cutting, designing, and all things inspiration!

Many folks come with a set idea, and then we tweak it as they go... we talk about color, placement, pushing what we first "see" into a new creative space.

We look for more ideas to change up the pattern, and see where else we can stretch ourselves.
It's always very exciting to watch people make there first cuts, wary, then, I turn around again, and a million pieces show up in the design wall.  

I love watching them work. It inspires me to see them make the connections.

I'm pleased to be hosting these lovely quite folk!
I'll share with you as there work changes and morphs!

At the end of the day, My New "GARLAND" quilt,  (Double wedding Ring pattern, kit and templates)   now in the store, came back from Mandy Leins who quilted it.
