Retreat Show & Tell

 Hello Everyone,

Here are just some of the projects that the girls were working on during the retreat.  Some of the quilts were completely finished and were shared during show & tell each night after dinner.  Diana will be teaching her wool projects at Empty Spools Seminar next year at Asilomar. The level of detail is over the top gorgeous.

Paula got her Lil' Orphan Scrappy quilt all together at the retreat.  She pulled off the rick-rack border perfectly.

Taimi started making leaves for Leaf Peepers.  Her leaves have a wonderful Taimi spin to them!

Nancie completed this flimsy at the retreat.  Her daughter-in-law is going to be one lucky girl when she receives this quilt.

This is a Blackbird Design quilt.

Linda finished her Heartfire quilt.

This is a finished Peek-A-Boo Pumpkins.

I'm calling this grouping the "Bag Ladies".  They all finished making one or two vinyl project bags. 

Linda put her little paper-pieced house on the back of her bag.  This was another one of the classes I taught at the retreat.

The backdrop for some of the pictures was the Scholarship from the Independence Hall Quilters.  This quilt will be raffled off at our quilt show in October.  The design is my Country Courthouse.

The quilt was machine quilted by Dianne Schweickert of Livermore, CA.

The quilt provided a nice backdrop for the pictures of "tablemates".  

I still have a lot more pictures to post over the next few days.  There was beauty everywhere at the retreat.
