    Categories: Everything!, quilting Comments Off on Retreat Photos – Part 1

    There were 50 of us at Falls Creek Retreat Center for our retreat last weekend, and everyone was very productive.  I have lots and lots of photos to share, and will break them down into six posts.  Here goes!

    Evelyn brought her Postcards from Hawaii quilt that she started at a previous retreat.

    She put this top together…

    …and gave us a tutorial on how she did it.  Thanks, Evelyn!

    She was extremely productive at retreat.  If you’re counting how many tops she completed, this is #2.






    And #8!  Amazing!  I should have given her a prize for getting the most accomplished.

    Quynh brought two quilts for show-and-tell.  This one…

    …and this one.

    She also pieced a strippy quilt.  It may look like solids, but it’s actually tiny gingham fabric!  Very cute.

    Chara joined us for the first time and brought this pretty quilt for show-and-tell.

    She finished this top made with a combination of fabrics, including linen.

    Can you spot the expectant mother?

    This is Melissa who had embellished some adorable onsies.

    She also completed two tops while she was there.  These adorable houses…

    …and this great batik one.  I was just at her blog and she’s posted some retreat photos, too!

    I was so touched when Sarah brought a quilt that she had made from my book, Fat Quarter Fun! I love how it turned out!

    She also got this log cabin top put together at retreat…

    …and was working on these blocks.  The pattern is designed by my friend Michelle and the fabric is by my sista-friend, Monica!

    Kirstie’s show and tell was this great old Grandmother’s Flower Garden.  The story is even greater than the quilt.  After a car was abandoned at her husband’s business for two years, he was going to have it crushed.  Before he did, he opened the trunk and found this in there!  Good thing he knew enough to call his wife!

    Kirstie got this wonderful star quilt top together.

    So, that’s a start!
