PENN YORK CAMP QUILTING RETREAT
NOVEMBER 9-11, 2018
I am excitedly looking forward to the fall retreat! (Have I
ever not been excited?)
According to the inquiries and responses I’ve already had concerning this
retreat, it looks like we may have a full house!! I always look forward to
being able to meet new girls and re-connect with former ones. This project is
so much fun, I just know you’re going to love it. You will have the option of
making the amazing disappearing pinwheel and/or the disappearing hourglass.
Both of these designs are made using the same technique. Once you have your
pinwheel or hourglass made, you cut it apart and re-design it. There are so
many design options, you can have fun “playing” for hours!
- 2 layer cakes*---1 with design and 1 for
background (stripes and 1way designs not recommended)
*a layer cake is made up of 42 coordinating 10” patches
Each set of 2 patches will make 1 finished 12” block
If you make all 42 of your blocks, with a 6” border added,
you will end up with an 84” X 96” quilt—buy 2yd for the border
30 blocks plus 6”
border=72” X 84”---buy 1 1/2yd for border
20 blocks plus 6” border= 60” X 72”---buy 1 yd for border
- Your sewing machine and all your wonderful
- A flannel
backed tablecloth to be used as a design wall
- An ironing station for yourself or to share with
friends (I encourage you to share because too many irons plugged in at once
causes circuit breaker problems)
- Extension cord and/or power strip
If you want to bring
a snack to share, feel free to do so.
We’ll all be happy to share it with you!
Reminder: you need to bring your own bedding (twin size) and
towels. These are not furnished by the

Ps. As many of you know, Amy has been in a battle with
cancer. She is currently undergoing chemo treatment and some other therapy. She
is scheduled for her last round of chemo in Sept, so we’re hoping that she will
feel strong enough to spend some time with us at retreat! Please continue to
keep her in your prayers.
