Details about Summer Retreat 2024:

It’s that time of year again, time for Summer Retreat!!! This year we will be using the Drop Dimonds pattern by Cozy Quilt Designs.

My sample is finished, just not quilted, so I will add a picture once I have it completed.  It looks like the pattern but instead of a white background, I opted for a pale blue and of course, the red is replaced with black and white dot!   The quilt is made made using jelly rolls and yardage for the contrast and for the background.  No special rulers are required, your general sewing essentials will be all you need.  I feel like everyone will be able to complete the quilt during the weekend so you may wish to bring an extra project or two OR you an shop for an extra project!  We will be making the twin size of this pattern and you will get to select your fabrics when you arrive.

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 $295.00. 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 (if you choose to come early) and Friday lunch.

We will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Friday the 23rd and will conclude the weekend at 11:00 am on Sunday the 25th. 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 AND I will have a couple of new games that are super fun!!! If you have never been to one of our Summer Retreats, it is truly a treat and a weekend full of fun!!!
