Hello Everyone,

This past weekend, I had the chance to return to the Strong House Inn in Vergennes, VT to teach the Bali Bed Runner class.  Mary and Hugh, who own the inn are the most wonderful hosts and I love going there to teach.  We had a great group of ladies that attended and they accomplished a TON!!! Let's take a peek.

This is my Bali Bed Runner and what they were creating, but in their own color ways.

This is the resident quilt police and very gentle and loving dog, Duke!  Look at that face... he is so sweet!

Here is one group of ladies happily working away!

The other group of ladies... I don't think they could be any happier!

Just look at this view we had to contend with!  The Adirondacks are just beautiful!

Here are some of the rings laid out.  Aren't they beautiful?  They are going to all be stunning and sooooo very different.

A different view and another ring added.

Here is the whole happy crew!  We had a fantastic weekend and I look forward to going back to teach again next year!

I took tons more photos and you can see them by clicking here.

Until Next Time...

Yes they all are going to turn out fabulous.


Wow, I wish I had known about this retreat. It’s just five minutes down the road from me. I would have loved to have gone.


Hi Jackie.
Is there any place I can purchase the wedding star quilt pattern without the paper foundation pieces? I don’t need all the paper foundations, just the pattern for them. I prefer a freezer paper technique for paper piecing where you don’t sew on the paper. I have looked all over the net and can not find just the pattern for sale. Thanks.
