A Special Quilt for a Special Lady


Earlier this month, two dozen NHMQG members ventured to Cape Cod for our annual fall quilt retreat. As usual, the event was a huge success … We retreat goers chipped away at our WIPs. We ate nice meals. We took walks along the beach. And we bought more than our fair share of fabric at local quilt shops. : )


The place where we both sewed and stayed was the Lighthouse Inn in Dennis, MA. For many of us, a highlight of the weekend was presenting Judith, the person at the inn who organizes these retreats for us, with a quilt. It was our way of thanking her for seeing to our every need during these weekends away and for making these trips such memorable experiences (so much that we keep coming back year after year!).

What many of us did not know until we presented Judith with this gift is that this is her last season at the inn. We wish her all the best as she makes this move!

This project is Ahoy Sailor by Suzy Quilts and features fabric from Bonnie and Camille’s Daysail collection as well as selections from Loved to Pieces by Mathew Boudreax and Sirena by Jessica Swift. Many thanks to Michelle, Tiffany, René, and Ellen for their contributions in piecing, quilting, and completing this project. And a special thanks to Betsy for coordinating the trip on behalf of the guild.
