A very Millrose weekend – part 1

It’s been a fabulous weekend; ten of us visited the house at Millrose to stay the whole weekend

Bev visited just for the Friday and had a quilt to show

20150427-142433.jpgas well as working on her beautiful embroidered bird

20150427-142520.jpgGJ had just a little bit of Liberty fabric

20150427-142649.jpgas she has started on “Passacaglia” by Willyne Hammerstein. This is what she’s made so far

20150427-143128.jpgand over the weekend GJ chose fabrics for the next round, sorting it all in her inimitable fashion!

20150427-143230.jpgMiss F chose fabrics for Judy Newman’s “Emma Mary”

20150427-143517.jpgfrom which she did lots of cutting and made up one block

20150427-143653.jpgJoy was working on these blocks

20150427-143744.jpgleant how to baste a quilt

20150427-143810.jpgand how to hand quilt

20150427-143832.jpgdidn’t she do well?

20150427-144340.jpgMiss C had brought along a quilt to snuggle under – just in case –

    Wow Meredithe, you have some talented lady friends. You guys are so lucky to have gotten 1 hr of sewing done in that beautiful retreat. You know before, before I started to create, quilt and blog. I was convinced that it was the end to all these beautiful hand crafts and that this sort of stuff was only mass produced and found in shiny magazines like Country Living magazine, but now I know better. Thanks so much Meredithe for sharing.

  2. Hola from Majorca! For once I’m not upset that I wasn’t there, as I look out at the pool and think about going for a swim!!

  6. thimbleanna says:

    Oh, you lucky girls! It sounds so wonderful — surrounded by beautiful fabric and friends. And I laughed when you said GJ has a little bit of Liberty and then saw the larger than little stash!!!

    Looks like you all had a very productive weekend but, what did you work on ? I’m looking forward to my weekend there (1st time) in 3 weeks. How are the Kettles ?

    The creativity was just bouncing from one person to the other. What an awesome place and special time to spend with friends. There’s nothing like it.
