Well it has been a busy couple of weeks, however I did get to spend a most enjoyable time at Heavenly Patchwork’s Retreat up in sunny Queensland. It was held at Tunnel Ridge Ranch in Landsborough just past Australia Zoo. It was such a beautiful campsite that is used for school camps/retreats/school holiday camps and the owners Paul & Cheryl are such lovely hardworking people.
I not only enjoyed helping out teaching at the Retreat which had a “Wedding Theme” but I also came away with the feeling that I had just made 30 new friends. The ladies were lovely and amazingly prolific with their quilting output (I think there was steam coming out of a few of the sewing machines!!!)
Lisa, the owner, of Heavenly Patchwork in Clontarf was teaching some of the ladies a Double Wedding Ring Quilt and they did an amazing job. Others worked on their own projects.
This is the pattern I designed for the Retreat in keeping with the “Wedding” theme. This is available as a pattern.
I came home inspired, a little tired and very well fed (the food was delicious!). I am sure Lisa and her Mum, Kay, deserve a rest after such a busy weekend, they were so organised and the retreat was fantastic. Thanks so much for inviting me.
Bye for now,
