Design Wall Monday - November 19, 2018

Thursday is Thanksgiving in the United States.  I have a lot to be thankful for this year.  

I just returned home from a wonderful retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana.  While at the retreat, I saw a vintage quilt that was made of broken dishes blocks, and it was such an interesting quilt.  Do you like it?

Here are two pictures of the Farmstead Inn, where we stayed.  The first picture shows Christmas lights from a display across the street, with the Farmstead Inn in the background. 

The second picture shows the Farmstead Inn with the lovely snow that came down while we were there.  It was just enough to look pretty, without causing slippery roads when our retreaters were leaving to go home.

The retreat is filled each time with such wonderful quilters, and they are all full of laughter, care, and love.  It fills my heart up.

What fills your heart with joy this Thanksgiving season?  I look forward to hearing from you, and seeing pictures of your design walls.  The instructions are the same each week; Please refer back to this particular blog post somewhere within your blog post.  I am thankful for you and your participation each Monday.

Looks like some tiny blocks in that vintage quilt. Very pretty. Sounds like you had a wonderful time away with your stitching buddies. Have a very happy Thanksgiving.

this looks like a lovely place to have a retreat and I know there are good shops in the area too - how many go to this retreat I have heard it is a huge amount and do all bring their Dear Jane quilts to show - what a wonderful display that would be to see.

What a beautiful farmstead village. Sounds like you have become part of a quilting family at your retreat.

I love the design in the vintage quilt. That would be a great frame for applique blocks. Thank you for the linky party.
