Weed Whackin' at Retreat!

Shelly sent me a great email with pics from her guild's retreat! She had asked earlier if she could demonstrate Weed Whacker to the girls, and I said OF COURSE!

They are the Illinois Valley Quilt Guild in Ottawa, IL. The retreat was held at Cedar Creek Retreat Center in Marseilles, IL!

It looks like they had a great time, not to mention a great room for their machines at retreat!

The pics speak for themselves. Wonderful Colors, lots of scraps being sewn up.

Great Job Girls!


  1. Very fun pics! Isn't it fun to see people enjoying your patterns! Look at the happy faces!

  2. Love that fall version...
    looks like crunched leaves.

    (I need to work on my fall UFO.)

  3. Looks like you all had fun!

    These all look great! Which reminds me, I have one half put together - wonder where it is?

  5. I'm with you...I'm always amazing at how different the fabric choices makes a block look! The fall one is great!

  6. Love them all, especially the older lady on the last row! She looks so happy!

  7. I'm just getting caught up. I'm so sorry to see that someone is trying to profit off your designs. You are so generous to share and give of your talent. Bummer that someone has the audacity to steal from you. Glad you're over the crabbiness. I love the string star quilt!

  8. Love this quilt. Looks like it would be an easy one too.

    It's been a week---you must be busy!

  9. Your weedwhacker idea and string starts are great. Sorry you are having to be "crabby", lucky imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!!!!!
    Love the modelling as well, you look about 20!!! Tracey
