Kay has the privilege of teaching a retreat in this tight-knit farming area. It's a community event, including adult quilters, young 4-H girls learning to sew and inspirational visits by local elders. Kay stays with one of the ladies and all the food eaten during the retreat is home-grown by the participating women.
Location: Courtyard Marriott Burlington
Cost: $375 ppdo
Project: This year's project is a one block quilt, which can be done with scraps or planned fabrics. The project requires no special ruler, does not have Y-seams, and is easier than it looks.
(The above picture is not the final design, but is one sample.)
We love sewing and using log cabin quilts, so we've designed several. They can be used as wall hangings or lap quilts. Some of our designs are holiday-themed as well, like this picture above.
Bed quilt designs was where VQD started. Kay was making unique quilts for her house and friends convinced her to turn them into patterns. Our designs are queen and twin sizes.
These designs vary widely and are great for decorating. They can be sofa quilts or wall quilts. These designs are where we try out new ideas.
We designed these small projects for fast completion, but still using traditional blocks and quilting techniques. They are table runners, table toppers, or wall banners.
We have several "Weekender" quilt designs for beginner quilters or people who want to finish a quilt top in a weekend. They're easy and fun to use with new fabrics.
To see all our designs, click on "More" at the top of the page and then click on "All VQD Designs." We listed photos and quilt names, more details are available on Etsy.
