Fun was had by all at our Dunford House quilt retreat weekend; the house was full and there was lots of laughter as well as sewing.  Jennie as usual had us in stitches with her travel stories as well as getting down to her red swimsuit complete with embellishments and the pub quiz was won by the “Thanglers”.  The  Dunford house staff did us proud – they looked after us superbly and the food was excellent – local produce well presented – and many of the bedrooms have undergone a upgrade and facelift with beautiful new soft furnishings.


My group were working on a scrap quilt which had 1930’s fabrics as an inspiration and creating triangles the ‘thangles’ way from 2 ½” strips ; Jennie’s group were twiddling and fiddling their way through blocks and Sarah’s group were making Jelly roll quilts like there was no tomorrow!

More Pics to follow but here is one that was completed in my class by Sue :
