What came first, the retreat or Relay? The retreat came first, starting out as a way for a group of internet friends to get together in person. And at that very first retreat some of the ladies attended a high school spaghetti dinner to help the band and choir raise money to go to London. As a result of that trip to London the band and choir decided to thank the community for their support by joining the very first local Relay For Life. And that started my Relay For Life adventure.
Over the last 21 years I have participated in 26 Relay For Life events. All of my pattern money (minus PayPal fees) goes to the American Cancer Society as well as the profit from any quilts that I sell. Also, any FUNd raisers that I have at my retreats go straight to my Relay account. I am not a business, I am a Relayer!
What started out as a get together for some internet friends has lasted over 21 years and the friendships have multiplied a hundredfold. Friends just can't miss their yearly reunion and quilting adventures, not to mention the laughter, shopping and all the fun. We finished our 62nd and 63rd retreats at the end of April and had our usual delightful time. We welcomed eight new retreaters but missed several regulars. We look forward to seeing those who were missing next year.
At this time we only have three rooms available from Sunday to check out on Wednesday, the perfect mini-retreat.
Sunday April 28 through check out Wednesday May 1, 2019. Check the Retreat page for more information.
On this page I have some of my favorite quilt patterns for sale as a fundraiser for Relay For Life. (Of course I would happily accept any donations for the freebies below if you have it in your heart, all donations go to finding the cure for cancer.)
You can find Lots of Blocks here. These are free for your own personal use, but if a guild or group would like to use them, I will happily give permission if you email me first.
And on this page are a few projects and quilt patterns. Feel free to use any of the patterns on these pages for your own personal use only. I am willing to share if you ask first, thank you! (This applies to guilds too.)
