Retreat Show and Tell

We had 13 quilters at retreat. 
Here are most of the show and tell quilts plus projects that were worked on at retreat. Since I was the quilt projects from retreat at missing but I will cover those in a separate post.

The first two photos are from Joyce who loves to make little quilts. She has been the main person to inspire me to go small.  

All of Joyce's little quilts were from the monthly program designed by Kim Diehl called the Whatnot Club. 

The next two are from Jill. This scrap-tastic quilt is queen-sized with over 2,000, 2-inch squares. She thought this project would really bust her scrap stash but she just made a little dent in the pile.

And here is Jill with a quilt she was making for her son who is graduating with a degree in architecture. Sew perfect.

Jan is our most senior member of the group and is Jill's mother. She worked on a new Halloween quilt. 

Jan really liked those red, demonic eyes she gave the mice.

Kathy brought finished two quilt tops, this colorful Maple Island BQ3.

Unfortunately I didn't make a note of the pattern for Kathy's second quilt top. 

Kaye brought several runners to finish up. She sells quilts at a couple of Christmas bazaars every year. Looks like runners are popular in her booth. 

Marcia brought a second panel quilt for show and tell. This is the pattern, "Bricks," designed to work with panels.

Marcia is the leader of Breakfast Club and she was working with a new set of floral panels by Teresa Ascone and made two quilt tops at retreat. Both are stunning.

The second version with the floral panels.

And Marcia brought a mini quilt kit for all of us using an Alaska motive fabric as the center of and octagon. I need to piece mine before Breakfast Club next week.

Mary gets so much done at every retreat even though she usually is the last to arrive and the first to leave. She pieced, quilted and bound this quilt her first day.

This quilt top got pieced by Mary the second day.

And she also made this adorable dress for her granddaughter.

Sandy brought a suitcase of quilts that needed binding...enjoy her "trunk show."

And here is a flimsy she worked on after getting all the machine stitching done on all the quilts needing binding.

Lots of great quilting in our group.
