Hello Spring!!! Falmouth Quilting Getaway 2017

This past St. Patrick's Day weekend seventy members of the Herring Run Quilt Guild headed to the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth, MA for a retreat. The large conference room was filled with humming machines, chatter, and laughter. As one would expect, there was a vast scope of projects; here are just a few.

Tina completed this wonderful Bermuda piece based on the book Happy Villages by Karen Eckmeier.    You may check out her website, "The Quilted Lizard -Fiber Art Studio" here.

I loved Gina's Pioneer  Spirit Quilt.

I don't know whose quilt this was, but what a great way to use up scraps! I wonder how many pieces there are???

Laurel worked on laying out strips for a quilt as a gift for an upcoming wedding.

Marianne peeked over the top of her cheerful quilt.

Another quilt which caught my eye was being worked on by Nancy. The colors were wonderful.

Edith worked on blocks for the 365 Day Project. These blocks with their many, many pieces are just six and a half inches! Her work is always so meticulous.

Now you might be wondering what I accomplished. Well, I completed all the blocks and segments for the double Irish chain that I am working on. Hopefully, it will be on my design wall sometime this week, so I may begin assembling it. Also, I stitched on one of the blocks for my current hand applique project.

It was a truly fun, wonderful weekend. In closing, here's Friday night's sunset complete with serendipitous strolling man and his faithful companion.

Yarmouth getaway last weekend, Falmouth getaway this past weekend . . . gee, I wonder where I can go next week! :-)


  1. It's been quite some time since I've went to a quilting retreat. Our guild has gone to St. George and a cabin 3 or 4 times, but I was not able to go. I made a double Irish Chain quite a few years ago. It's still one of my favorites. Can't wait to see yours!

  2. Beautiful sunset photo. How fun to spend such quilty time with friends!!!
