Quilt Retreat

Just come back from a few days away at the West Manse Quilt Retreat in Cullen, Scotland

What a fabulous place, their aim is to give you quality quilting time and it certainly lives up to that

The rooms were beautiful with lots of little added touches, the food was fabulous there was nothing I didn't like.  Chris & Pete were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble

After 3 days sewing I managed to complete a full quilt and piece together a second quilt top ready for quilting now I'm home.

The first one was made using a jelly roll, basic grey for moda, sweet serenade

The second one was done using a batik charm pack, plus border fabric

Can't believe it's 6 months since I put anything on here, such a lot has happened in that time both good and bad
My Husband passed away, I've moved house, Daughters graduation and had second lot of surgery for my breast reconstruction so as you can imagine things have been fairly hectic. I've not felt up to crafting much although my crafting friends have been my lifeline and support through everything.
Anyway things have settled down and I'm getting back into doing things

Been scrapbooking again and these are the layouts I've completed over the last month

The first two were done at the Merly Impressions crop and the second two were done at our local scrapbook crop
