Quilter’s Harvest: The Retreat House

Be Aware, Be Grateful
1. Wonderful fall weather, still in the upper 50s!
2. Family traveled safely to two different places
3. Hair cut

I’m still amped up about the Quilter’s Festival that took place in Alpine, Utah (and surrounding areas) last weekend!! Sydney from Alpine Retreats organized the FUN event! Quilt Retreats in Utah

Since I was coming from out of town, Sydney invited me to stay at the Retreat House. 


This is the room I was able to have sweet dreams!!  CHARMING!

3bed room

Did you notice the fireplace in the top picture?  I was ‘all snugged up’ as Urban likes to say!


Every detail was attended to by Sydney.  Fresh flowers, quilts, embroidered items and silver platters of candy were everywhere!

It was a wonderful place to absorb serenity and inspiration.

No need to tell you I slept quite well and when I woke up I was anticipating the fun day ahead.

1bed room

Another bedroom downstairs with a full sized bed. This one has a large walk out deck.

Below are pictures of a room with two single beds and one full sized.

3bed up room

One more cozy room with a double bed, balcony, fresh flowers and an amazing view!

Since I took over 100 pictures I thought I’d split them up.  :) So coming up will be posts about the classes and teachers, one about the places I visited and one that shows Sydney’s quilts and some of mine!
