We had lots of wonderful show-and-tell at the retreat, including this stitchery from Carol. I believe she did the stitching on linen.
She had also finished this wall hanging. She did the center a couple of decades ago! Don’t you love the paper pieced geese in the corners?
Nan recently finished a quilt top from my Bears Outside My Window kit. I hadn’t made it in the green variation, so was really pleased she let me photograph it for the catalog! It’s really a fun quilt–I split the pre-printed panel and put it back together with an attic windows setting, then put bear paws around the outside, hence Bears Outside My Window!
Here’s my original red version.
Gloria, a member of my guild, designed this fabulous bag. She shared the pattern with the guild members, and I asked permission to share it with my retreaters.
I wanted to demo it, so whipped up this version. It’s amazing how much it holds. I have six quilts in here!
After my demo, Pat T made one from this fun animal print!
She also shared this quilt she made with leftovers from years of quilting. I love the pillow tuck!
I’m always saying that the Twelve Step Program quilt from my first book, Bundles of Fun, has been made more than any other quilt I’ve designed, and Pat helped prove my point! She made this one with an interesting border…
…and this one with the traditional border.
Sue made several of these adorable pincushions, and I got to take this one home with me. Thank you, Sue!
Lonna brought this early Sunbonnet Sue.
This quilt she made for her son when he was a baby. It’s just opportunity cloth, but she embroidered around all if the characters!
She also made this Christmas wreath wall hanging…
…and this Christmas quilt.
This Nine-Patch is also one of Lonna’s. I like the random squares in the borders.
My favorites are always the vintage quilts. This is one that’s been in Lonna’s family since the Thirties.
Of course, I loved looking at all the prints and had to examine each one up close!
Denise brought the first quilt she ever made, this adorable ducky quilt.
This is Denise’s most recent quilt. I know because she finished it just before show-and-tell!
Tracey made this OSU quilt, showcasing a lot of different sports.
At the last retreat, Robin challenged the ladies to make quilts from 1-1/2″ squares–squares that would finish at 1″! Well, several of the ladies took her up on it and surprised her with a cute skit during show-and-tell. This is Anna’s finished quilt.
And this is Penny’s. Nana Pat and Mary K. have started making them, too, and I’m pretty sure Denise got the bug before the weekend was over!
Our other Pat P. made this quilt, which she said reminds her of her childhood on the farm.
Laraine brought the finished product to show us. This is another quilt that had it’s start at an earlier retreat. It’s so great to see them finished!
She also made this sweet row quilt.
At the last retreat, Judy was working on the blocks for this quilt. The detail in it is incredible!
Several of the ladies had participated in a row challenge. This Halloween one belongs to Joy. Don’t you love how someone added their row up the right side?
Karen J (there were FOUR Karen’s at the retreat!) showed us her warm row quilt.
Judy’s row quilt had a Christmas theme. There were some talented quilters participating in this challenge!
Suzie was a first timer at our retreat. I love this medallion quilt that she made.
And look what she did with the back. It’s as pretty as the front!
Stephanie showed off some pot holders…
…and table runners…
…and this precious bunny quilt.
This isn’t the end. I have more! I told you this was a prolific group!
