More from the Retreats

Sheila tells me that she had a great time at the recent Indianola retreat, and that finishes up the Spring Quilt Retreats for this year.  Of course, as mentioned in earlier posts, you will continue to see some great pictures – as the retreat participants send in photos of their work.

I have another group for you today – and they are beauties.  Some are finished, and some are in the finishing stagest (pinned or pieced together and waiting for their turn at the sewing machine).

Keep in mind, as different as they look, all of the quilts you are seeing were made using the “Scraps for You” pattern by Debbie Caffrey.  This will not be the quilt used in the fall retreats – and no, Sheila hasn’t told me yet what she has planned for fall.

Now, here are the latest batch of quilts from the retreats – and I can’t wait to see some more of these pictures – so keep them coming in!

Teresas Quilt

Teresa’s Quilt

Same pattern used to make these quilts – just a different layout of the squares… and some opted not to use all of the fabrics chosen by Sheila, as you can see in Sue’s quilt above.  But such differences!  Isn’t it great the way that quilting allows for individual expression?  I can’t wait to see what comes in next!

Another Great Quilt Top

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the different quilt tops from the quilt retreat – here’s another great top, with yet another look to the finished piece.  So many ways to layout the same fabrics into a beautiful quilt!  I can’t wait to see what I get next time!

More from the Quilt Retreat

Here is another quilt retreat quilt top – emailed this morning to the email address.

Quilt completed by Joan – as you can see, she choose to keep colors together, making nice large color blocks in her quilt.  The use of the bold print in the center really draws the eye. It’s hard to believe those are the same blocks that Shirley and Imagene made. It’s fun to see the different ways you can lay out the blocks. Thanks for the picture Joan!
