Jubilation at the Compass Centre

I have just returned from a nearby quilt retreat center called The Compass Centre, where the Texas Blue Bonnets and Indian Paint Brushes are in full bloom.  Dear friend and quilting buddy Carolyn and I went there to complete the scroll quilts we began in Cara Gulati's class at Quilting Adventures last month.  Both of us arrived with our the scrolls sewn together, ready for the edges to be turned, glued down, and pinned closely along all edges.  Then we appliqued them to the background, a very dark blue for mine and a stone colored, stone-look fabric for Carolyn's.  We worked all day Wednesday on these tasks, and by 4:00 or so, we were done!  I felt jubilant, and I promptly named my quilt Jubilation!  I think the title fits, as it is such a bright and happy quilt.  Once it is quilted, it will hang on a high wall in the living room of our new house.  Below is first my quilt Jubilation and then Carolyn's, which she will probably call Serendipity.


  1. Love the quilts - Like looking at clouds, I see shapes, maybe imagination, maybe not. The colors are JUBILANT, as intended.

  2. Those quilts are amazing...have not seen anything like them before, but I will certainly start looking. Friend today asked me to go to the Katonah quilt show in New York. I can't imagine how you made that beautiful quilt but I am impressed you were tough enough to pull it off. Congratulations!

  3. Ohhh, I like both quilts. I especially like your dark blue background. Dark blue is a favorite color. Your talent is extraordinary.
