Another one of Leslie's Lori Holt patterns. She is one busy woman!
Martha brought a couple of small quilts. We had a Bow Tie exchange this retreat.
Martha thought she would like to make one but in searching for quilts for Show and Tell
she noticed that she had already made one. How many of us do that!
We all loved this one.
Last retreat Martha put together all the blocks for this Halloween Twister.
She was quite nervous to start the cutting and sewing but found it was much easier than she thought.
Didn't it turn out cute!
This was an exchange from a past Bee exchange.
Dee brought a few quilts to share also. This one is huge! Do you notice the little papers pinned to some of the blocks? Those are ones she is not quite happy with and wants to take them out and replace with others she has made. Really? It is gorgeous!
A 30's quilt she finished a while back. We loved this one too.l
Our last retreat we had a fabric exchange for making this Bricks and Stepping Stones Quilt.
Suzanne brought hers to our last Bee meeting and Dee just has a couple more borders to add to hers.
Of course, after seeing theirs I wanted to make one too. The last couple of weeks I cut and cut and cut fabrics ready to work on mine at this retreat.
These 2 quilts were made by Claudia. The camping one she has had in her motor home.
I think Alice made this beauty. She says it was sooooo hard to make and she almost gave up several times but persevered and now has this lovely top.
Ina shared this patriotic small quilt and
this really great red and white quilt. She and her sisters work on a project every year. This one has several red and white blocks and lots of embroidery.
It looks like a mottled fabric was used for the background but it is white and since they are holding it in front of the window you can see the bold red fabric design from the backing.
We were greeted by Suzanne's cat every day.
Lunch is always wonderful and relaxing after sewing for so many hours each day.
Liz brought some past exchanges also. I made the mummy and the Boo blocks for this exchange.
A bit blurry on the hearts but it is hard to take a picture while stuffing food in my mouth.
This is a string table runner that Liz made.
I'm heading down to my sewing room to iron my blocks that I worked on at the retreat. I will take pictures of them so you can see I actually do accomplish things and not just walk around looking at everyone's projects and gabbing!
Thanks once again to Suzanne, our hostess, for setting these retreats up a couple of times a year and letting us come in and take over her home for a couple of days. We always have a great time and get lots of inspiration for future projects and acclamation on current projects.
Happy Quilting! Lynda
