Sunday Quilt Inspiration: R E T R E A T

Quilt Retreat that is!  If you're interested in finding a retreat place, you can begin at Quilting Retreat Finder (their Pinterest address).  I found it this afternoon and dreamed for an hour.  Oh, to visit for a weekend at any one! 

Deluxe Sewing Charm Collection Antique Tibetan Silver Tone 17 Charms - COL246

Of course, I won't be visiting any, though I may be able to pull off another day of quilting with friends.  In the meantime, I'm simply going to dream (big) and pin a few ideas for those who might be retreating soon.

Great post this week! You have shared some fantastic quilts and I love all the quilt retreat ideas - the sort of stuff I wish I made but never quite get round too. Maybe I'll pop off now and make a pincushion...
