Quilting Retreat

I have just had such a fun few days - last Friday I went to Eastbourne with my two friends Lyn and  Lise for a wonderful weekend of quilting.  The sun shone, our workroom over looked the sea and I have started making a great quilt called American Beauty in reds black and creams:
I am really pleased with how this is looking - very dramatic.
Busy friends working away, and our view over the sea:

And here are some of the quilts brought along for a Show and Tell: plus some of Di Taylor's beautiful quilts from her classes held in Godalming:

Time to say goodbye, and a huge thank you to Di for all the planning and organisation that went in to making this such a successful fun weekend:

Altogether we had a Big Fun Weekend with some glorious weather:  here are Lise and Lyn at Beachy Head before we went home:

It was just so good to get away and catch up with quilting friends, and meet new quilters,  So many different ideas on colour schemes and different designs - all inspiration.  Here's to the next time!


  1. Wow, looks so wonderful! What a special retreat in a beautiful location!

  2. Love your quilt, the red and black is so striking! All of them are beautiful. What an amazing location for a retreat!!
