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.

Quiltvillians Around the Porch!

This is the sight I love to see!

So many gorgeous quilts hung over the side porch rain at Quiltville Inn!

Covid brought us many challenges - but the one thing I love from this whole experience was having everyone bring their own quilts to sleep under to help with my need to wash and sanitize all bedding (including my own quilts if they were in use) with each group.

Folks LOVE bringing their own comfy quilts to sleep with, and then we get the benefit of a virtual quilt show with each new group that comes!

Quilting Round Here!

It's been a busy week in the Quilting Quarters at Quiltville Inn!

It does my heart so much good to see all of the creativity happening - bring on the full design walls - I love love love it!

I'm glad I took these photos over the past week as by the time I head over this morning the design walls will be bare and folks will be saying their farewells and see-you-next-times.

How can a week fly by so fast?

Still Horsing Around!

Of all the photos I could possibly take on Friday's hike up to see the wild ponies along the Appalachian trail - this is by far my favorite!

No faces - just quilty friends resting after a long climb and looking out over the beautiful mountain views.

And we BEAT the rain (which really didn't fall on Friday) and we made it back by dinner time happily exhilarated over our efforts to climb, climb, climb and see all that we could see.
