Quarantined Virtual Retreat
As I sit here feeling really chuffed with myself for sewing together my “Quarantined” quilt, I am thankful for you all joining me in marking history. This quilt says something to each of us and will continue to do so for a very long time. For me, it means a family project. We chose the fabrics as a family and now that I have it sewn, we will layer and pin it… Then, as a family, we will tie rather than quilt it… something we can all do together.
I am so excited to share the next clues so you can finish it up as well. I love all your colours and stories behind your quarantines… both in life and in quilts. Thank you for sharing with me.
I also thought of doing a virtual “quilt retreat”. Since we are quarantined, isolated, or distancing… we could meet in cyberspace for a couple hours each day, couple of days, or each week to sew together. I need to work out the details, but the more I think about it, the more I love it!! I will design a small (crib or throw) quilt we can all work on at the same time and we can toss ideas and tips around as we go… what do YOU think??? I am already designing………….
That sounds like a great idea. I live alone so some company to sew with would be wonderful 😁
Sadly I missed the sew along day as I am living temporarily with my daughter. I love the quilt but will have to quests at measurement as don’t see pattern anywhere.
If you tell me which pattern you want, I can direct you to the pattern… Maybe this time, you can join in the sew along day.
Sounds like a great idea
Sounds wonderful. I’ve been doing one with someone else for a few hours every few days. It’s great! For a couple of hours, we sew on a project. I’d love to do this with you for a change of pace!! I love your designs!
Sounds like fun as long as I have the fabric requirements.
That sounds kind of fun. I’m still working full time, so I’d only be able to do it on a weekend, though.
