Quilt Retreat, Quilting with Friends

What’s better than being able to quilt on a rainy day……?

It’s quilting at a B&B with friends on a rainy day.  Spring is on its way but last weekend turned out to be foggy, damp and dreary.  Cold enough to have some snow showers.  (Just Mother Nature’s way of letting us know who really is in charge.)   We’re ready for Spring , Mother Nature!!!!1

However, I spent it in the best way possible – at a delightful weekend quilting retreat with friends at an Upstate B&B.  Bridal Creek is located in Hamilton NY, the home of Colgate University.

This country home not only boasts wonderful meals, a beautiful homey atmosphere, but its hostess (Barb Hipsley) provides an exceptional quilting area for small groups.


The quilt area has 5 design walls, Ott lights, multiple tables that can be rearranged easily along with the normal cutting and ironing stations.  Barb sewed with us as well and joined us in the delicious meals she prepared.   Her attention to detail, making sure that we had everything we needed, made our stay more than memorable.

We are definitely  going back next year!

Normally quilt retreats are rewarding just because we get to quilt all day without interruption and have a wonderful time socializing with fellow quilters. Barb’s welcoming made the experience even better.

I was able to finish all the blocks and assemble the rows of my Year of Seasons quilt, one of my UFO’s for our guild’s challenge. 

Bridal Creek has all the amenities that you expect during your stay at a B&B – and as an extra bonus, Barb provides an atmosphere that makes for a perfect quilt retreat.

There is always time to quilt!
