Sadly, today is the last day here at Fireside Retreat. But who cares about that - it's what happened yesterday that counts.

Sarah’s Purple and Silver Quilt from Quilted Joy

This is Sarah’s Purple and Silver Quilt. We love it when Sarah comes in to drop off a quilt. They are always the most amazing pieces. With intricate and complicated piecing, all expertly stitched by hand, and in beautiful colors, Sarah never ceases to amaze. She made this quilt as a wedding gift for her brother and future sister-in-law. I am sure that this will make quite an impression at the wedding because her beautiful quilts usually do.

Hand piecing in Purple and Silver

Looking at this quilt can be intimidating. There is so much going on because of ...
