Quilt Bliss 2014

Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend Quilt Bliss here in the gorgeous mountains of Utah. 

Timber Moose Lodge

It was a delightful, relaxing time spent with old friends and new friends.

There were great classes (this one is a scraps class taught by my friend Amy Smart – and this was also the gorgeous sewing room with spectacular views) -

There was plenty of open sewing time -

And as the snow kept falling we all stayed cozy and warm inside -

I finished a few things and started several more – this is my string block made from just a few of the selvages in my scrap bin -

And these will soon turn in to a quilt like this one (Briar Rose from England Street Quilts).

There were trunk shows by Sherri McConnell, Erika Bartlett, Sarah Jane and the women from the Utah County Modern Quilt Group.  There was inspiration everywhere!  It was almost overwhelming.  I came home with new ideas and plans and I am already looking forward to the next Quilt Bliss.  Hopefully I’ll see you all there!
