Winner & New Quilty Question

October 6th, 2011

Last month I asked you all what the #1 thing was on your wish list was and you all gave some pretty good answers!  So, we consulted and  lucky comment #21 is our winner!

Congratulations, Judy J. !!!

Judy answered – “I was planning to say I would like more time to sew and quilt, but now my wish is that Laurel from comment #18 will feel much better soon.”

Seriously, what a great answer! We all hope you feel better soon, Laurel! <3

October Quilty Question:

Define your “dream come true” quilting retreat.

(just leave you answer in the comment box for your chance to win a $25 Stitchin’ Heaven Gift Card!)

(I know I could fill up some space with my answer LOL)

Hope you’re all having a lovely week.

Don’t forget to check out Patchwork Party. It just started October 1st and is featuring Bittersweet fabrics from Benartex.

12 shops & 12 finishing kits!

This one is ours.  We call it Bittersweet Symphony.

Click on the quilt image to be taken to the Patchwork Party page where you can see what each shop’s block and finishing kit looks like.

Talk to you soon!

    Well one of your cruises but longer and with a chef that can miraculously remove all calories from the wonderful meals. Oh and the massages from the spa would be included!

    Well one of your wonderful cruises of course but even longer and with free drinks, massages from the spa and no calories in the buffet!!

    Well, wouldn’t it be nice if you were in the back room of the fabric manufacturer, and you could see all of the wonderful fabric being printed? And then HAA have a 5 minute shopping spree… and then ahh when you were revived from fainting, your favorite teachers were all there to hold your hand through your difficulties and deepest fears in the quilting quilting on curves? Ahh the dreams.

    My “dream come true” quilting retreat would be in a quiet, rustic resort that was filled with fellow quilters who would share their love of sewing and fabric! Good food would also be of the utmost importance.

    I’m going to my first retreat this weekend. Quilting all weekend, no cooking, no looking at my dirty house. I would love for it to last a week.

  7. Julie Naatz 's creative mind says

    My dream retreat would be here, in my home, with 3 of my best quilting friends and a fabulous teacher. A home visit. Perfect. Oh, we’d have to have some fantastic fun little things to try – goodies! And all the food would, of course, be catered in. I think 2 days, maybe 3 – way too much fun.

  8. Tammy from 's creative mind says

    a quilting cruise around the world to learn about all the different quilting styles. Days at sea would include long arm lessons and practice time, wonderful food and friends! Trips ashore would be to great cultural and historical sites and the best fabric shops!

  9. Annmarie 's creative mind says

    I dream of going on a quilting cruise. Every time I make a wish, that’s what I wish for. And Stitchin’ Heaven has so many cool ones that I have to wipe the drool off my keyboard! Reeeeally wanted to go on the Batik cruise that is happening right now and then there’s the Paper Piecing Cruise in March – sigh……
    Maybe someday – that’s what dreams are for!

  10. Patsy Beaubouef 's creative mind says

    An Alaskan quilting cruise with the classes in a room with great views and a jenie in a bottle that would get us through the embarkation process with a twitch of her nose. Also at each port the quilt shops would have a free tote bag or fat quarter for everyone. I wouldn’t want to be greedy.

  11. Janice 's creative mind says

    It would be in the quiet woods of East Texas, last at least a month, and I would finish all my works in progress! Wonderful, homecooked meals would be delivered and there would be a 24/7 chocolate buffet and a big screen TV for watching the Texas Rangers. :)

  12. Laurel 's creative mind says

    Thank you for the well wishes. A recent meeting with my oncologist has not resulted in the most hopefull answer. It is unkown how long I will continue to tolerate the chemo or how long it will keep the cancer in check. Thus it is unknown how long I will survive – 6 months or 6 years or ??? Meanwhile I can only dream of things I would like to do. I would love a quilting cruise – the chance to commune with other quilters – I think I would like the scenery from an Alaskan cruise.

  13. robin 's creative mind says

    hahaha – I like Patsy’s answer. Yes, an Alaskan cruise, lots of chocolate, free fabric (well, included in price of retreat, I guess!), laughter, fun, and time to relax. :)

  14. Kathy P 's creative mind says

    Three or more days with good friends, sharing our love for quilting, laughing with each other and learning from one another. Doesn’t make a difference where we are!

  15. Sandy A in St. Louis 's creative mind says

    I would love to attend a retreat with my friends from out of town, one where we don’t have to worry about cooking and could stay up as late as we wanted sewing. Oh, and it would have to have a store nearby so if we forgot some supplies, we could just walk there and get what we need. A great teacher or a mystery quilt would be a fun project to do! or we could work on whatever we wanted. I’ve never been to a retreat, so this is what I would think would be fun!

  16. MarciaW 's creative mind says

    My dream quilting retreat – lovely quiet spot with great scenery, wonderful individual rooms, and spa amenities, awesome food, great hospitality and service, all the quilting notions and needs supplied so don’t have to carry anything and great instruction by wonderful quilting teachers who give me all the attention I need to learn. Oh! I forgot to say – free no cost. Thanks for the dream.

  17. Karen Propes 's creative mind says

    Mine would be a retreat in the mountains of Tennessee and be where we could get massages in between classes to help us relax. Would love our 1st class would be with someone there that could help us create our own patterns, and we could purchase the fabric from shops that we would visit on a tour of local fabric shops. Then we could come back and start on our quilts and have enough time to finish. Then have a quick course on quilting labels to finish off our self-created quilts. How heavenly it would be to quilt, meet new friends and enjoy the peaceful mountains.

    A quilting cruise, for sure.

  19. Nancy B from Many LA 's creative mind says

    My “Dream Come True” retreat would be having my sewing studio finished! Right now it’s a storage shed, and needs to be finished so I can move in. Then it would be mine, and I’d never have to go on a retreat!

  20. Annette 's creative mind says

    My Quilting retreat in sutting with my Grandma in her sewing room . Her giving me help on quilts or just listning to her talk of the quilts her & the other ladies in her group have made.

  21. Ana Earl 's creative mind says

    My quilt dream retreat would start with the limo coming to my house. Then the driver to load my “stuff” and smile the whole time.
    Onward ho to pick up all my quilty friends and load their “stuff!”
    Final destination, retreat center up in Smoky Mts during the Spring when the flowers are blooming!
    Last but not least, a “cabana boy” to fetch our cold beverage and cook our meals. . . ah but we can all dream right!

  22. Dee M 's creative mind says

    I think my choice would be an Autumn retreat in the mountains with beautiful color, crisp mornings, and mild days with lots of sunshine. A nice view would also be nice – and maybe a spring or river nearby to listen to at night. Second choice is that I would love to take a cruise to Alaska and a quilting cruise would be awesome!

  23. Terri 's creative mind says

    My dream come true would be to go on another quilting retreat w/ my dear cousins, Jan and Lynn. We have done this several times and always enjoy ourselves. The distance is the problem – they are in Illinois and I’m in California. Our retreats are few and far between, but that is what I would wish for! Oh, yes, the 3rd cousin, Donna, has taken up quilting, so I want her to be there, too! So far we have had retreats in Wisconsin, Florida and Lake Tahoe. A few years ago, the girls made me their honorary sister as I never had a sister. I am now “Sis-Ter”! Gotta love ‘em!

  24. Kathie 's creative mind says

    Oh My, probably not enough room here! My dream retreat is one with all my quilting friends. What more would you ask for?

  25. Trish F. in Denver 's creative mind says

    My dream quilting retreat would be, sitting on a nice quiet beach, with a giant umbrella for shade, no wind, no rain and about 75 to 85 degrees, and someone who would come by about every 2 hours and see if we needed any food or drink, then when the day is done we go to our rooms, take a nice relaxing shower or bubble bath, go eat dessert and then dinner :smile: Go to bed and start it all over the next day. I think at least a week maybe 2 would be good..

  26. Lois H 's creative mind says

    I would say in the mountains of Georgia when everyting is starting to come to live or in the fall when the colors are turning. As many bolts of fabric and machine and ladies as a cabin would hold and at least a week or two of sewing and getting to know everything and make sure #12 gets to come with all her friends :)

    My dream just came through, I just got back from a cruise with Stitchin Heaven, and met a great bunch of quilters and the most awesome teachers. Thank you Stitchin Heaven.

  28. Jonnie Nottingham 's creative mind says

    I like Karen P’s answer, but I’d have to be in the mountains of Colorado or the Grand Tetons close to Jackson Hole. I would love for mine to be a Baltimore album retreat where I would have the fabric to reproduce the Mary Simon quilt. Great food, massages, lots of wonderful chocolate and fellowship with other quilters who have a passion for what I love would definitely be an added bonus!
