Retreat Reminiscing-Part 2

Friend's, Food & Fiber 

As with all retreats there is no shortage of food & drink!
A wine that we enjoy is Apothic "Dark" which is a limited edition.
I know that bottle looks lonely on the table but I brought 2 more! 
Great gift during this Spooky Season!

Apothic Dark Limited Release, California, USA

 Buttons cookies!

Hubby suggested next time to use licorice as the thread.
He is quick learner! 

 Also made some Button Chocolate Pops.
Looks like I was on Button kick for this retreat!

These are only a few friend photos.
More to come when I post the Show & Tell next time.


I love a good scissor fabric!

  One of my "Blogging Besties" Kelly from
 Pink A Dot Quilts blogspot  meet up with us at 
Burkholder's Fabric. Kelly is the one that has turned my eye onto low volume prints. There is a art to using these fabrics and she has mastered it! If you can visit her blog!

And of course--
in Helen fashion I had to pick up low volume in a darker version.

This is Radiance by Robert Kaufman. 
This is when photos do no justice.
These are a silk blend that add sheen & richness to a quilt top. 
I do have plan for these!!

 I gathered 4 of the Moda Figures charm packs.
And Chelsey from Nini & The Sea  found the backing-isn't it perfect? 

When starting this trip we ended up in Needles & Pins Quilt Shop and found this cute license in fabric! 

 And I now have enough backing to last for awhile!
These fabrics scream my name!

 Till We Quilt Again,
