RIcky Tims Quilt Retreat

We're back in LaVeta, Colorado, home of Ricky Tims, where we're going to attend his Quilt Retreat. This is my fourth year to attend, aren't I the lucky one? I highly recommend this five-day retreat which is held in an independent study format. Mornings begin with a topic of the day to explore and words of wisdom from Ricky himself. Then it's off to quilt and make magic for the remainder of the day. This is a week of pampering at its very best. The food is superb, I've always stayed at the LaVeta Inn so the accomodations are fine, and you quilt as long and as late as you wish. The big plus is that Ricky is available for advice and assistance for the entire day. I certainly enjoy going every year.

The quilt pictured here is my friend Barbara's Kaleidoscope from the previous year. You can learn more about Ricky's retreat on his website
