Sheila's Quilt Party 2024 is open for enrollment!

Riversdale Retreat

I had a lovely weekend teaching my Triangle Block Party class to the ladies of my local quilt guilt, Wairarapa Quilters. For the first time we stayed at Waimanaaki, a great venue at Riversdale Beach for groups to stay at.

Half of the class decided to make the Modern Triangle Sampler quilt, and half worked on smaller blocks to make a table runner. We soon had a full design wall.


The students did a fantastic job and worked hard all weekend as well as having lots of fun with beach-themed dressing up, quizzes and lots of eating!

Here's Rosie with her quilt blocks, trying to get everything in the picture


Adie made all these blocks in the two days


I loved Sue's use of Alison Glass Sunprints light for her backgrounds


Kattrina was using Karen Lewis Wayside fabric to make her runner

While Martina went for a bold modern look



We also designed a brand new block, especially for the Wairarapa Quilters



I love teaching this class and seeing my students realize how easy these blocks are to make!
