Quilt Away with SFQG

I was lucky to be invited to teach at the San Fransico Quilt Guild's "Quilt Away"!  It is a 3 day retreat held at the Mercy Center in Burlingame.  It was great fun and I really had a lot of fun with my students and many of the members.  The SF guild is very diverse in background and interests and it made for lots of interesting conversation at meal times!

The Mercy Center is a wonderful complex.  There's a conference center and rooms,  Chapel, and rooms for retired nuns. 
 The grounds are really beautiful.  Lots of mature Oak trees and even a Labrynth!

Here are some of my students hard at work.  I taught my art quilts class "Let the Fabric do the Art Work".  It was great fun!  It is a challenging class and all of the students produced their own one-of a-kind compositions.  A very talented group of women!  

Now I must get off to my sewing room 'cause  my Guild, PVQA's   Faire is Feb. 22 & 23 and I've got some quilts to finish for that event.  Cheers, Claire W.


  1. That is fantastic Claire!! Can you share any of your student's work?

    1. Hi Lori, Good question! Because each student came up with their own unique design I was reluctant to ask them if I could show their work on my blog and none of them are really into 'Blog land'. But I did ask if I could take pix and I will show them to you when I see you next, Hopefully this summer! How's all this crazy weather treating you all in Madras?! I hope you are warm and dry! cheers, CW
