Bye Bye, BEASTS!

The BEAST Quilters loaded it all up and were on the road toward their home destinations as of yesterday morning.

Farewells are SO HARD!

I can still hear the echoes of their machines and laughter ringing, even though the house is silent and empty. (But only until this afternoon!)

Rivanna PDF Release Day! (And a bonus!)

Good morning, Quiltvillians!

As you can see from this photo - it's a promised release day!

The printable PDF pattern for my Rivanna quilt (including the bonus table runner!) is ready for you in the digital pattern section of the Quiltville Store!

And because Summer is such a wonderful time of the year - I'm also releasing the PDF pattern for my Bitcoin quilt - something you've only seen snippets and glimpses of over the past several months.

Beauties and the BEAST Quilters!

This was Sunday morning sunlight through Lani's Winter Blues top in progress!

Her goal?  To finish the top and hang it over the porch rail at Quiltville Inn!

I think she's going to make it in time!  Check out time is noon on Tuesday - so Sew, Lani Sew!

Oh, how I love a blue and white quilt - it just does all the good things for my soul.

Stringing, Treadling, and More!

This spectacular gift for the Inn was lovingly handstitched by Lani.

I am still so flabbergasted, it brings me to happy tears.

Do you see all of the things she added just to this close up?  There is Zoey at the bottom.

2019 is when we held our first beta test retreat, the first retreat of 3 before Covid shut our doors for a season.

She graphed out and stitched the inn itself!  She even shared the graph she drew with me - imposing it over an actual photo.

The two cats Lola and Ivy are there as well.

Quilt Like a BEAST!!

The B.E.A.S.T Quilters are in the house!

Our last member arrived yesterday afternoon - all the way from Syracuse, New York to join the others who came from Ohio, Missouri and Utah!

The connections fascinate me.  Quilters know how to network!

The Green, The Wash and the Rain!

Lonely little abandoned house - nearly swallowed up by the growing green!

I took these photos on a walk up Round House Road while the June Quiltvillians were in residence over the weekend.

It had been a couple of weeks since I'd been up here.  We had Zoey with us, and she enjoyed the leg stretch, leading the way as we walked along the river, then began to trudge up-hill into mountain farm land.
