A few weeks ago I had the good fortune to get together with Sue Nickles at Road to California. We spent an afternoon and evening together which was great fun! She also brought a surprise for me: two completed Trip Around the World quilt tops made using my Solid-ish fabric line! I was so tickled and the quilt tops she made are gorgeous! She and her sister, Pat Holly, run the Holly Girls’ Quilt Retreats in Michigan each autumn and this year’s retreat theme will be Trip Around the World quilts. I attended one of their week-long retreats a couple of years ago and a fantastic time. I’ll be going back in 2019 and can’t wait to spend another week immersing myself in all-things-quilty with them. I wonder what their retreat theme will be in 2019? Anyone want to join me?
