📕 Every Quilt Has A Story 📔 ...

And this one is super sweet! Kathy's granddaughter asked her if she would make a quilt for her out of her old pajamas. What grandma could refuse such a request!

This is Kathy's first quilt and she went with simple squares consisting of knit, flannel, polar fleece, gauze, cotton and more!

✂️ Staff Retreat ✂️

     One of the benefits of working at Quilt Cove is the twice yearly staff retreats. Our owner, Sue, runs a beautiful retreat home in New Prague, Minnesota, called "The Getaway" that can accommodate up to 20. It overlooks Cedar Lake. 
     We each had our own table. Here's my set-up:

I'd like to highlight some projects the 9 of us were working on. First off are all these adorable Dresden plate Christmas ornaments that Cindy finished:

A Scrapbaggers Christmas Quilt Swap🎄

My small quilt group, the Scrapbaggers, had our Christmas party recently at Laura's beautifully decorated home, featuring a sparkling 10-foot tall Christmas tree and many Christmas quilts, and a delicious potluck meal. My bad--the only photos I took, besides our quilt swap, were Patty's Christmas cookie tray--Patty and her cousins amazingly made 30 varieties of Christmas cookies over Thanksgiving weekend!

And this bundt cake, also made by Patty, which was as delicious as it was beautiful, with jelly filling inside.

The big event of the evening was our Christmas quilt exchange. At our October meeting we brought a charm square pack in a brown paper bag. We then drew a bag, not knowing who's charm pack we had, or who had our charm pack until the big reveal. The guidelines--make a small quilt or tablerunner for the original charm pack owner using at least 75% of the charm pack. Here are the results:
