When you register for your retreat, you will have the opportunity to select four of our original 12" block designs in one of three colorways. Click on any quilt for a larger picture and close-up views of the blocks.

We currently offer nine block designs depicting Costa Rica's natural and cultural heritage. Nature blocks include a jungle leaf, a palm tree, a hummingbird, a turtle, a frog and the Arenal Volcano. Cultural items include a traditional clay pot, a caved stone face and a pre-Colombian gold medallion. When selecting your designs, please note that the palm tree counts as two blocks!

Beginners will receive instruction as needed in the use of the sewing machine and rotary cutter, pressing and general piecing techniques, as well as the assembly technique used for these designs.

Intermediate and advanced quilters will receive instruction in the assembly technique.

An individual work space and sewing machine will be provided for each guest, with shared cutting and pressing stations nearby.
