    quilt retreat

    I'm going to a quilt retreat and would like to take a snack gift for everyone. Does anyone have any ideas quilt related I could make. If not a snack a small gift to make. With a cute quilt verse or saying to attach to it.

    This may not have what you want, but if you Google " treats for teachers" it will give you lots of places to look. You might find something there.

    At the retreats I go to, a big batch of brownies, cookies, fudge or Chex mix is always welcome on the snack table. I made these for everyone, very easy and fast to make: http://www.fatquartershop.com/Free-Q...incushions.pdf

    BellaBoo !! What is an adorable Pincushion. Thank you for the link. I love it and saved the pattern for my retreat in the spring.

    I went to one and we received belly button lint cleaners! They were about an inch long narrow bead with a pipe cleaner doubled over and glued into the bead. Put into a tiny bag, with 'the official xx retreat belly button lint cleaner. Fun to make and get.
    I also received a used pin keeper, made from old,medicine or film containers, painted, with a yoyo on top.
    Have fun.
