On Hood Canal

Greetings from Washington State! I’m spending the week teaching at back-to-back quilt retreats in a tiny town on Hood Canal. Such a lovely location.

The pattern I’m teaching is Idyllic by Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts. Here’s my class sample:

I floated three of the center stars in octagons to add a bit more visual interest.

The first group of 21 fabulous women left yesterday. Here are some of their first blocks, each one measuring 14-1/2″ square:

Isn’t that a delightful profusion of colors? So many possible combinations! Next week when I’m back home I’ll post photos of each student with her blocks, along with those of the second group, arriving this afternoon.

The setting for the retreats is nothing short of spectacular. Check out this sunset:

That’s the view of Hood Canal from the long back porch of the retreat center and from the deck of the little house where I’m staying.

Lucky me!
