Alpine Quilt Retreat and classes is located in a beautiful home in Utah, and I’m looking forward to quilting with you!
We will be sewing with solids! I have my personal collection of solids to show you the differences between manufacturers and weave of some of the fabrics. The quilt pattern being used is even on sale right now! You can view the schedule of all the teachers – here. And all the details needed to register are here. Let me know if you plan to be there!

After lunch, Sydney gave us a tour of the quilt retreat spaces. This was my favorite bedroom, each bed has a quilt and duvet, with lots of pillows and adorable sheet combinations. I spaced my camera…so this was the one decent pic I got from my phone. The workroom is great too, with individual tables covered in fabric, and shared ironing boards/cutting tables. Sydney has thought … Read More »
Hi friends! I was excited to get an invitation in my email a couple weeks ago to teach at a new Quilt Retreat here in Utah! Who me!?
Well, I do love quilty friends, and encouraging the love of quilting, so, YES me! After a chat with Syndey on the phone, and a slew of emails I have dates for next year. Early enough that you can even put it on your Christmas list – I see your wheels turning…We will be working on my Balanced Connections Quilt for the weekend, and opening your horizons to the beautiful possibilities of solid fabrics. I’m so excited about some hands on experience with teaching and hopefully meeting some of you!
