Some things we worked on at retreat

 
Hello everybody. I've been meaning to post these and I just kept forgetting.  Several of us went on retreat at Celeste back in April.  We all had a great time and we are all ready to go back.  Here are some things that were worked on at retreat. I'm afraid I didn't take pictures of what everyone was working on but here's a few.....
 
Glenda worked on this with her polka dots.  This is a disappearing 9 patch quilt. She used all polka dots except for the black centers.
 
 
 
 
Here's a quilt top I finished. I found this in my closet while looking for projects to work on. I had forgotten to put on the borders to finish this,  so here it is with the borders added.
 

 

Jackie worked on her Bonnie Hunter quilt, Grand Illusion.


 
 
 
 
 
Bev likes triangles!

 
This one is Jessica's.

 
 
Sue worked on this pretty pinwheel quilt.

April meeting

This month we had a round robin program.  It was great and I hope we have more of these...
 
Jackie talked to us and showed us how to do the  chenille method on fabric. 
 
 
 
 


 
Annalee showed us how to work with hankies to make blocks for quilts. 




Katie talked to us about origami fabric folding.  Lots of fun.


 
This month was the month we showed our quilts for the polka dot challenge There were seven entries for the challenge and Annalee won with her beautiful circle quilt.
 
 




 
 
Now for some great show and tell from our members.
 
Sharon with her wonderful bag.   It's great and she sent out information by email on how to find the fabric. 
 



This is her beautiful wool quilt.  
 

 
Here's Nancy's cute baby quilt.

 
This one is mine. I found this on Pinterest and I also saw a video by Jenny of Missouri Star quilts for this one. It is called Tumbling Charms. I used two charm packs and yardage for the border from Eleanor Burns. 
 

 
 
Glenda made these two for community service.


 
Here's Susan's cute butterfly quilt.

 
Sally's polka dot bargello quilt.

 
Another great one from Sally.

 
This one is a Christmas jelly roll quilt.

 
Ok, that's it for this month.  I hope you enjoyed seeing what our members have been working on.  Get busy and bring more show and tell for next month, until then, happy stitching.
