Quilt Retreat

The other week I got a chance to go on a quilt retreat with a couple of friends. We rented a house in Lititz, PA and had our own private retreat. It happened that on the weekend that we chose, there was a chocolate walk on Sat. We bought a pass with a button and starting visiting many of the shops located in town to sample their chocolate wares. There were 30 participating shops. We made it to 24 of them! The samples were delicious and it was a lot of fun. Some places even had samples for your dog. Lucky Jasmine! She not only got some treats from me, but my friends as well. After the walk, we went back to the house and started sewing!

Chocolate Mice from the Chocolate Walk.

All of these are made from chocolate.

I got a chance to work on a surprise for my daughter. She loves Halloween and I saw a cute 12" wall hanging in the Fall issue of For the Love of Quilting by Fons and Porter. I started it when I was on the trip with my hubby to Illinois and just about finished it on retreat. I finished it when I returned home and thought I would share a picture of it.


  1. I love your Halloween project and all the great bright fabrics Mom! I am sure Katy would love it!
