When Women Create


The quilt guild ladies don't seem to ever slow down! 
Such energy and passion for quilting! 
For five days last week, guild members were busy sewing up a storm at this beautiful bed & breakfast.

A calm and gently flowing river sits on one side of the yellow bed & breakfast.

And on the other side is a quilt shop that is filled with bolt after bolt of quilt fabric! There's enough fabric to fill two buildings. Fabric is tucked into every crook, cranny, and corner! It is amazing!

Sewing machines, ironing boards, and cutting tables
fill the main rooms in this beautiful old house.

Unique and special hand-made quilts cover the beds in every sleeping room. Each is beautiful and exemplifies the care that the keeper of the house so willingly gives. The breakfasts she prepares each morning get rave reviews from guests!

Crock pots and tea kettles are a quilters friend. They can be filled and allowed to simmer the day away while everyone sews.

Such diligence reaps wonderful reward! The reward is not just an abundance of completed quilts, but friendships that will last a lifetime.

When women create...unbreakable bonds are formed.


  1. Lovely to see every inch of space at the B&B given over to quilting pursuits. How delightful!

  2. We just had our quilt retreat too. what a beautiful house!! Great idea to have a quilt shop right there! How fun!

  3. Now this looks like my cup of tea. I would enjoy a few days of just playing with friends and creating. What a sweet house and beautiful quilts.
