the 3rd Hometown Retreat

March 26, 2011

Here we are again another year of hometown retreat. Over the years our group has grown as you will see, every year we gather together old friends and then there are always new ones too (whom we welcome with open arms). 2007 proved to be another great retreat as we unveiled our 2nd fabric collection; Bohemian Rhapsody. Projects like Rumba and Calypso along with our special retreat project (never has been re-published, come to think of it) you can see bits and pieces of that retreat project in the front row. This fabric collection was a real jump outside the box for some students and that was great to see. What was also great to see was how the students put their own spin on the project.

I must say this has been my favorite fabric collection that we have done…oh, if we only had kept more….

shown below is Calypso, Rumba and the retreat project “customized” .

I love how the lighting shows the quilting!! And YES the applique on Calypso is done by HAND!! (thanks to Betty Klassen!)

On a side note; I have been working on our Studio bmd and our Flickr account so be sure to check those out too.

    Bohemian Rhapsody is my favourite Blue Meadow Designs fabric line. I must admit I have quite a stash of it still in spite of making a king size quilt at that retreat!
