Posts Tagged ‘quilt kits’

The first weekend in March I spent a wonderful weekend away quilting in Henniker, New Hampshire.   A few of my friends (well, there are 5 of us) discovered the Henniker House Bed & Breakfast last year.

Henniker House B&B

The B&B has five guest rooms as well as a beautiful open great room overlooking the Contookook River.  Innkeeper Kate  generously let us spread out our sewing machines, fabric, and the rest of our quilting stuff – and leave it there! – all weekend.  Add home-cooked breakfasts every morning and a great quilt store – Quilted Threads – conveniently located right next door, and it made the perfect setting for serious quilting and ‘away’ time.   Last year we stayed for the  weekend, and this year we decided a longer 3 day weekend was in order.

What a treat!  Despite the snow, the weather cooperated so we took a break from quilting to walk  along the river and check out the nearby trails.

We brought twice as many projects as we could work on.  We cut, measured, pieced different types of blocks including two sets with curved seams, hand applique’d, and knitted.  We used the floors in the larger rooms as design walls.

 

I put together kits for upcoming workshops and did some machine quilting.   I came so-close to finishing the top of one of my multi-year quilt projects – I think I will call it my ‘ten year quilt’ when I finally finish it.  I completed the  first block in 2003 (wow! it seems like yesterday…)

 

 

And – what quilting retreat would be complete without a pair of feline sewing supervisors?
