October 7 – 9, 2022 - Englewood, CO

CQC will be having an in-person Fall Retreat with Carolyn McCormick of CM Designs as our instructor. Carolyn is the creator of the Add-a-Quarter ruler and she has designed a new pattern for CQC Fall Retreat based on an antique Pineapple Log Cabin quilt displayed at the 2021 Quilt A Fair. This lovely quilt is finishes at ~68 inches and is composed of sixty-four pineapple blocks designed to produce a secondary circular pattern. A sample will be available to view at the monthly general meetings. Of course, fewer blocks can be made to create a sixteen-block table topper or eight-block table runner for a quicker finished project. 

Fall Retreat will be held at the Hyatt Place Denver Tech Center, 8300 E Crescent Parkway, Englewood, CO (near I-25 and Belleview). Each room will have either a king-size bed or 2 double beds. Each room also has a couch with a pull-out double mattress which can be used for a third or fourth in-room guest. The rooms have a small living area, a microwave, a refrigerator and coffee maker.

Our retreat will be held in large meeting room which will accommodate up to 25 retreaters with each at a separate table for their sewing machine and cutting mat. This hotel has many amenities, including indoor swimming pool, exercise room and bar. More information can be found at Hyatt Place Denver Tech Center. Breakfasts and lunches will be included. Retreaters will be able to dine at any number of nearby restaurants or arrange to have dinner delivered. Member prices for the weekend are shown on the registration form and are less than 2021 Fall Retreat prices. The class fee for the Pineapple Log Cabin will be $65 per person.

The pattern for the Pineapple Log Cabin quilt will be available in early June at www.cmdesignsonline.com. Carolyn will be providing a lecture and a trunk show during the retreat which is available to all attendees even those not enrolled in the Pineapple Log Cabin workshop. Please consider joining in on this fun-filled weekend.
