Please leave a comment on this post, link on your blog if you would like, and for double entry send me a photo from a retreat/ quilt class, girlie group photo.....and all this week I will post and the giveaway will close in a week, next Monday will announce the winners...plenty of time to enter as often as you like....

The prizes....OF COURSE THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE!

Below fabrics for the first prize


Collaborative Quilting Again by Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran for the second prize


Hand-in-Hand....Friendship, reTREATS, REFRESHments, RENEW..

Fabric that I purchased while shop hopping with Mom and Shars this past Saturday as part of our RETREAT festivities....Seemed so fitting for CELEBRATING the fun weekend of GIRL time and quilting...

How fabulous is the word fabric piece...Grow, Sprout, Renew, Sunshine....

Have fun with this...LIKE A SHOW AND TELL and RETREAT all on its OWN!

Love, Em

Quilt retreats are AWESOME. I've been to Quilt Camp in the Pines (held in July in Flagstaff Arizona) several times and I always have a blast. I will definitely email you pictures!

Lynn said...

My guild had been having just one retreat a year, in October. Last October we had some newbies and they had so much fun that they organized a second guild retreat in February because they didn't want to wait until October again. A good time was had by all!

Two of my Aunts, my mother, and I recently had a good visit together - we all quilt, so guess what we talked about, traded hints, and gave each other loads of compliments, etc. - Thanks for the fun and drawing Em! alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

I have sadly never been on a retreat, Hopefully someday I will have the free time to get to one.I would love to enter your giveaway! I think my fav treat would have to be black rasberry ice cream with chopped walnuts on the top!

Cassie said...

My favorite treat right now are two things... fiber one bars... I know odd, and ginger snaps. I -heart heart heart- fiber one bars... they are yummy. Specifically the oats and chocolate chip ones. MMM.

Clare said...

Hey you over there. Those fabrics are scrummy yummy gorgeous! Retreat photos? In France? Are you joking or what!

Lisa said...

Hi, would love to come and play. Actually most of my friends arent quilters or they are simply too busy to learn. Have to rely on my online quilt buddies! Thanks! PS, never been to an official retreat. Read the Elm Creek Quilt series and would love for something like that to be real and to be a part of the whole experience.

Lisa said...

Hi, just sent you and email sharing a photo of a quilt I just made. Took a quilt class in a LQS, thought bargello would be more difficult, and so pleased how it turned out. Hope you like it too. Thanks.
