This week I am hosting my Annual VFW NYC Retreat here in my home, hosting 8 quilters from the US and Canada! Day one is spent on cutting, designing, and all things inspiration!
Many folks come with a set idea, and then we tweak it as they go... we talk about color, placement, pushing what we first "see" into a new creative space.
We look for more ideas to change up the pattern, and see where else we can stretch ourselves.
It's always very exciting to watch people make their first cuts, wary, then, I turn around again, and a million pieces show up on the design wall.
I love watching them work. It inspires me to see them make the connections.
I'm pleased to be hosting these lovely quite folk!
I'll share with you as their work changes and morphs!

If you are interested in my VFW NYC 3 day quilt retreat, I announce the class only in my newsletter. It does fill very quickly... You can sign up for my newsletter here.
At the end of the day, my New "GARLAND" quilt, (Double Wedding Ring pattern, kit and templates) now in the store, came back from Mandy Leins who quilted it.
