Do you love antique quilts? Have you been saying you want to learn about quilt history and see lots of antique quilts, up close? Well, now is your chance! I will be doing a 4 day antique quilt study retreat as part of the Quilt St. George quilt retreat on January 6-9, 2016 in St. George, Utah. If you don't live within easy driving distance, you can fly into Las Vegas and drive over (only 120 miles).

I will be doing 4 antique quilt/quilt history presentations:
Dinner lecture Wednesday a Quilted Garden
Come see a field full of beautiful floral applique quilts. And no garden is complete without birds (on quilts), so I'll bring plenty of those too!
