Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Quilt Retreat update…

It has been almost two weeks since our retreat, but I did want to show you some of the work that was done during the time.

We had 17 people present….

and each had our own 9-foot table to set up however we wanted.

We were served three meals a day and just had to walk down one flight of stairs to get to the dining room.

It was HEAVEN!!!!

I enjoyed working on my two projects which I have talked about previously but REALLY enjoyed seeing what some of the others were working on.

One of the first “finishes” of the week was my friend Linda, making this fun baby quilt…..

She went on to make 5 wonderful blocks that will be the start of a Quilt-of-Valor…..

I offered to take them and turn them into a quilt top and I am REALLY looking forward to playing with them….maybe add some log cabin or strip blocks to them…..we will see!!

I loved this scrap quilt, especially the border….

…and this one is the perfect way to highlight wonderful fabrics….

Pat and Mary were both working on the same quilt, in almost the same colors, so it was a bit of a contest to see who would finish first…..

Both quilts looked great…..

Rosie was working on these highly thread-painted blocks……

I can’t wait to see exactly what she does with them!! I know that it will be amazing!!!

And these improvisationally pieced blocks will be the start of a great quilt…..

There were several QOV tops finished….

….and lots of other projects!!

When I got home…..

….. and returned everything to its rightful place in the studio, I sat down and made a list of what I took so that it would be easier to pack next time (and maybe I wouldn’t forget my cutting mat!!). I also made a note on my machine table to remember the legs…..

It was a great week and I am already looking forward to the next retreat in May!!!
