Quilters Retreat-More Photos

I have a few more photos to share with you of our Happy Quilters Retreat. Barbara Murray's beautiful 30s applique/pieced quilt was, I think, my favorite! She has been working on this for several years, and I commend you, Barbara, for sticking with it and completing it. It truly is lovely! Here it is laid out on a sheet. Everyone came to a consensus and agreed that a few of the larger patches were too bright, so Barbara replaced them with a lighter fabric. Well done, Barbara!


This is Kay, below, with one of her small quilts. Kay finished this little guy while on retreat, including the binding. Very soft and sweet, Kay!

That's Janet, below, with her pieced "Shells" top. It has beautiful shells and starfish on it. Perfect for taking to Virginia Beach on quilters retreat, I might add. Nicely done, Janet!

The 2 photos below are of Deanna's little Featherweight and her pink and green quilt. I'm so sorry I neglected to get a photo of her pieced blocks. It's going to be gorgeous Deanna! You've inspired me to start collecting pink and green fabrics for my own pink/green quilt. 

And last but not least, my friend Pam in her night-light headgear. A lot of people asked where she got her fancy light--it's from Wal-Mart, you'll find it in the section with all the hunting merchandise. This is Friday night and Pam is putting the binding on her pumpkin-themed Thimbleberries quilt. 

We had a nice big room that is a community room adjoining a beautiful subdivision pool. It has two wonderful walls of glass, perfect light for a group of quilters. And on the ride home, I had two different encounters with deer on the road. Not that I hit them, but they crossed the road in front of me. They are such beautiful animals! Good friends, good food, a little fresh air, and lots of sewing...what's not to love!
Till next time, keep stitchin!
