This is our workspace, there were ironing boards and cutting tables available around the room. Lynda's 30 year old fabulous machine broke a short time in to the first day so we shared my machine. I would cut and press while she sewed then she would cut and press while I sewed.
Lynda is working on her first Jelly Roll quilt and it looks like she is enjoying herself.
This is my Birdie Stitches project, not quite complete.
Here is Lynda's Jelly Roll quilt top.
It was fun to see what everyone was working on. We had a very special time of show and tell. A very talented lady who lives locally brought her Tall Ships quilt to share with us. It is amazing! All of the applique and is quilting done by hand
This cheerful quilt top was made by another of the ladies who attended.
The two projects below are what I was focused on finishing. I left a couple of the embroideries for this first quilt at home so I was not able to complete it at the retreat. I did get quite a bit done though.
This quilt is called A Faithful Friend and was designed by Lena Green
Most of the fabrics I used in this quilt are Fig Tree.
This was my first experience with so much piecing.
The second project I worked on while at the retreat was my Birdie Stitches quilt. This was a Block of the Month designed by Corey at Little Miss Shabby
Our time at the retreat was relaxing and inspiring, I am ready to do this again soon.
