Another great quilt retreat is over! 54 of us gathered at Falls Creek Retreat Center once again. We had plenty of room to spread out and work on our own projects.
There were also plenty of demonstrations, like this one by Karen J. on making perfect circles…
…and this one by Sarah M. on creating design boards. That’s one thing I love about getting together with other quilters—I always learn something!
I did a little one-on-one, when necessary.
And everyone made a coffee cozy!
We’ve never had nicer weather at a retreat than this year. It was perfect for a walk to the falls.
There’s nothing like crisp, fall days!
It’s been a very dry few months for us, so the water flow in the falls was quite low.
That did give us an opportunity to see some geology we hadn’t seen before, though.
Of course, besides being able to sew ’til your heart’s content, the best thing about retreat is seeing what everyone else has been doing! This is a baby quilt Robin made with some of her famous 2″ squares.
Sue brought a great sampler quilt for show-and-tell.
Heather was putting together blocks for this stunning log cabin variation.
She also brought this quilt for show-and-tell night.
Stephanie made this quilt top from one of my mystery kits. No, I can’t tell you which one. Then it wouldn’t be a mystery!
Here she is modeling an apron she made.
Bonnie B. made this wonderful quilt with crazy blocks.
Patti’s French Roses quilt is soooo sweet.
That’s Eileen peeking out from behind her monochromatic gray quilt top.
I love Phyllis’ use of lime in this black, white and lime quilt.
Denise gives us her best “Vanna” and shows off her pretty flower blocks.
Carol made this patriotic quilt for the Quilts of Valor program.
Newcomer Kay made this stunner.
This very modern quilt was made by Kristy.
BJ created this beautiful rose with fabric and thread work.
BJ and nine others each made a section of this quilt from a photograph–and the only part of the photo they had was the part they were to recreate in fabric. Incredible!
I’m in love with this Grandmother’s Flower Garden created by Laura.
Curved piecing is always impressive, and this Drunkard’s Path from Sue F. is no exception.
This Spider Web from Sue reminds me I need to do something with those Halloween fat quarters I’ve been collecting!
This is just the start! I have more show-and-tell to share with you in the coming days.
