Tricia's House Quilt

Dear Fellow Material Mavens,  As you know several us met in Nantucket last May for a retreat at my house.  The members were able to come secretly created this amazing quilt for me.  I wanted to share it with all of our group.  From top left the squares are Alice, Gail, Carolyn, Nedra, Lois, Jane, Rita, Sara and Andrea

 Here is my thank you note to the group

Now that I feel like I am above water. I wanted to send out a note to all of you!  You can see your beautiful quilt hanging in our house.  I look at it every day and marvel at the beauty and originality.  You were all so thoughtful in creating it. I know I sent a note when I received it but wanted to show you were it is hanging and to let you know I keep looking at it and admiring all the detail you put into it.
Alice I love the Lobster house and your boat The Alice Elizabeth
Gail I love that your created my house with all our names and Mr Moss on the roof.  What great house fabric.
Carolyn Your hand work and your quilting are just so beautiful
Nedra I love the hydrangeas and fence.  Your sky fabric is beautiful. Love the roof quilting
Lois  What a perfect house Sankaty! I love seeing the photo fabric and the quilting in the sky. We were able to climb Sankaty last fall for the first time.  What a beautiful view from there
Jane I love your stitching along the house, the flowers and the roof quilting.
Rita What a fun house with the roses encircling the house.  Wonderful hydrangeas in the yard.
Sara Your stitching the house is just fabulous. You also used the confetti technique for the hedges
Andrea What a summer scene with the sailboats and Mr Moss behind the door.

The Artist Association keeps asking when you will be coming back.



  1. I am just delighted to see this quilt in place! And I know just where this is in the house, so I can see it in my "mind's eye" too!

    Your thank you note is most gracious and thoughtful. Thanks for the photo and this lovely note to all of us lucky enough to be in Nantucket! What fun we had, and what a fabulous hostess you are!

  2. It looks great there! We were so pleased with how it turned out. You are more than welcome. We so appreciate your warm hospitality! You gave us a vacation we will never forget.

  3. Love seeing your quilt on the wall, Tricia. What a wonderful time we had - both in your Nantucket home AND making your quilt. Thanks so much for the memories!

  4. What an awesome quilt ! I still sigh when I think of the Nantucket trip that I wasn't able to participate in... Hopefully, next time !

    Cudos to all the MMs for a lovely tribute to wonderful times, and to Tricia for all the work she put into making the Nantucket adventure happen !

    1. Kathy, you came so close to going with us! I wish that Greg's emergency had been delayed a few weeks so that you could have gone. We had such a wonderful time, and how great it is to see the results of what we all learned in several of the recent quilts by those who attended!
