    Quilt retreat with my sister.

    Every year my sister comes down and we spend the week together at the beach in her time-share condo. This year the time was especially needed as we lost our Mom back in February, so we needed some time together. Anyhow, this year we decided that we would have a quilting retreat at her condo. We didn't get to the actual beach at all but we visited 3 different quilt shops, I got a table runner cut out and I was able to help her make this quilt. It was something she had wanted to do for a long time and just never got around to it. It was great fun.

    Sorry for the loss of your mom. This was a time for healing for the both of you I am sure. What a lovely quilt, I love all the birds that are in the fabric. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Pretty fabrics and nice and colorful. I love birds. I think you either love them or you think they are bad luck. I happen to love birds, they are very entertaining in my bird bath. Thanks for sharing

    your quilt is beautiful. Spending time near the beach or any other water source is about calmness and fresh air. I'm so happy you were able to have that kind of time with your sister.
