Retreat was a lot of fun...lots of food, laughter and even a bit of quilting. One of the things I really enjoy about my guild is the wide diversity of quilting styles in a relatively small (100 members) group.The first thing I saw when I came through the door was an almost compelted RRCB...Sharon, who pieced this top, kept up with Bonnie through the month of December. This top went to the longarmer on Saturday...btw I was on 410 of my 600 hst.....
Some quilts make repeat visits to retreat...the birthday quilt above was started in 2010 and finished this year. The center is all appliqued and shows her garden and cats! (My block is the basket on the left side...)This red quilt comes from a Piece of Cake Pattern. Last year I believe she worked on the border...now it only needs binding!
Several of the newer quilters were working on Turning 20's and Take 5's.
And I'm not sure of the name of this quilt but it involved sewing a jelly roll strips together until they were the length of the conference hall then folding and cutting...and folding and cutting. Anyway it turned out quite cute.
More later...got to nap!
