Details about Summer Retreat 2023:

It’s that time of year again, time for Summer Retreat!!! This year we will be using the Faded Stripes pattern by Angela Walters.

My sample is not yet quilted, but here is a picture of my version of the quilt. The quilt is made made using 3 different fabrics and the XL Stripology ruler by Creative Grids. You will get to pick your yardage when you arrive and it will be great fun to see the different color combinations with this one! The ruler is not required but will be available to purchase if you decide you can’t live without it once you use it to cut strips. This ruler has been out there for a while, and I even owned one for a while, but have never used it until I made this quilt top. Let me tell you, I am truly impressed!! They are rather pricey at $69.99, however, if you want to purchase one I will offer them at a discount ($59.99) for those who come to retreat. When you pay your deposit, use the drop down menu to select the Retreat with Ruler or Retreat No Ruler. If you choose to purchase the ruler, it will be here for you when you arrive. The quilt assembly is pretty easy, a lot of strip sewing, and then cut into rectangles and re-sew!

I would rate this somewhere between beginner and intermediate on a skill level and I would encourage you to bring an extra project to work on, I feel like everyone will be able to finish before the weekend is over!

This year’s retreat will again be held at the Quilt With A Heart retreat center in Priddy, Texas, which, is located in between somewhere and nowhere in the center of Texas! We are centrally located in this great big state and are approximately 2 hours from anywhere significant in any direction you go, i.e., 2 hours to Austin, Ft.Worth, Waco, San Angelo, Abilene, Fredericksburg, you get the picture!

The cost of the retreat is $300.00. This fee covers the cost of the two night stay, the quilt kit and pattern and meals. Friday night will be pulled pork sandwiches along with sides and a dessert the other meals will be whatever I decide later, but there will be plenty to eat! Bring your own snacks and favorite drinks, coffee and tea will be provided. If you would like to come a day early to get set up, you can come on Thursday afternoon for an additional $35.00 fee.

You will be on your own for the Thursday evening meal and Friday lunch.

We will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Friday the 26th and will conclude the weekend at noon on Sunday the 28th. As always, there will be prizes throughout the weekend and we will play the fat quarter game and have show and tell on Saturday evening!!! If you have never been to one of our Summer Retreats, it is truly a treat and a weekend full of fun!!!

If this weekend fills and I still have more that want to attend, I will schedule a second Summer Retreat to be held after this one concludes. You can pay your $50.00 non-refundable reservation fee for the 17th Annual Summer Retreat here!! Balance of $250.00 due at time of retreat.
