Quilting Retreat Part 4 - Some Finishes




Despite all the eating, laughing and drinking we do manage to get some sewing done. The first morning can be a little slow to get going (we have a rule that no-one sews on the first night - that is set aside for catching up) but once we start there is no stopping us. I think that the last ones sewing were still up at 1.00 am .......





Sharon turned this ......




.... into this ......




This quilt was made for a home ec teacher who was retiring (most of these wonderful ladies work at the local high school). Some of the people who worked with her contributed fabric and took a turn at making up a block then Alison put it all together and will quilt it. The background and border fabric is covered in cute cooking utensils.




This quilt is gorgeous. I love the mix of pinks and greens.




Mandy's hexi quilt which apparently has taken her years to finish - well done Mandy


Yvonne finished this ...



and this ......


One of my favs from the weekend .... I just love red


and lucky last my Fandango quilt. I just love the fabrics in this range and especially against the white. I have since added three borders and it is huge .... covers a queen size bed.
