My Quilt Retreat gifts

post signature
I went to a Farm Girl quilt retreat at Thimbles and Threads in Draper, Utah.
I have wanted to go on a retreat for about 10 years now, this is my first one :)
Cathy aka Tazzie from Tasmania Australia, was able to fly over from down under to join us.  
We have been so excited to meet!
Cathy and I are the only ones who haven't met Joanna, Vanessa, Kristie and Lynette, who were all at a Farm Girl retreat last year.
We are all Instagram Besties, we chat a lot and have become great friends :)
This is a souvenir block that I made for Cathy.
Everyone else is making her one too, all 26 of us.

The famous and fabulous Lori Holt will be our instructor. 
We are all making her a flag block too, this is the one I made for her.

I made a gift bag for all my IG bestie :)

The pouch is from the book "Sweetly Stitched Handmades" by Amy Sinibaldi.

The pouches are really little and oh so cute!

I added a little sewing machine charm to the zipper pull.

I used up the rest of my "dream quilt create" ribbon :)

I made this one a little different, just for fun!

 I included a little gift for Kristie's daughter Hailey who is really adorable, and always tags along with her Mom :)

I'm so excited about the retreat!
I'll post lots of photos next week :)


  1. Enjoy!! Beautiful gifts - you've really been busy :)!

  2. Hello Cynthia, your blocks are beautiful. I am making this quilt for my son. The blocks are fun to make. I Love your little gift bags, so sweet to make them for our friends.
    I loved seeing all the photos on IG, I look foreward to seeing yours.

    Love Leanne xx
