More Retreat Pictures

Sorry the font looks weird in this post..... Blogger is going haywire today.

Hello Everyone,

First I want to say that I am overwhelmed by the enthusiasm over my Black and White Challenge. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone's work over the next year and getting to know you all better. It is going to be a great project.

I have been really busy quilting customer quilts to return them prior to Christmas. You can see some new ones I added to my site by clicking here.

Anyway, in my last post prior to the challenge I was showing you photos of my yearly retreat with friend of mine. I shared with you everything that I accomplished, now I would like to show you some of what my friends did.

Here Joan is showing her beautiful Christmas stitchery.  She worked long and hard on this one.
Here Erica is showing her wonderful pink and green star quilt. I just love the colors.

Terry is showing an apron she worked on made from one Fat Quarter. I believe this is going to be a gift. I can't believe I just didn't get a picture of the quilts she was working on at the retreat. Darn!

Here is what Eileen was working on. Sorry I don't have a picture of Eileen with her 2 projects. The biggest one on the design wall was a hold over from last years retreat. She really made progress this year.

Maria made this wonderful snuggly flannel quilt among tons more projects. She is definitely an over achiever at these retreats.  We love her!

Justine is just plum tuckered out while she is modeling this quilt.  She is our pillow case queen. She just brought this quilt over to me to quilt. So this will be in my gallery soon.

Julie also accomplished quite a bit. Among them she was working on this Double Irish Chain for her son.

Patty made this beautiful spring batik quilt. She is going to use this on her table come spring time. 
Diane made this wonderful contemporary quilt.  I just love it and also quilted this one for her. This will be in my gallery soon as well.


So there was a little look into my retreat. Good times, friends and quilting! 

I am also going to put a post on the Black and White Quilt Blog today, be sure to check it out.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Jackie

Dear Jackie, it is tempting to join your ‘black and white challenge’ but I think it is wise to decline. I have so many projects going, and as I’m a hand quilter you know it is all very time consuming. I wish you all lots of fun. Please keep on posting of your activities. Love to see pictures of the finished works. I’ll add this new blog to Bloglines.
Happy quilting, Helen

Teresa said...

Beautiful quilts - thanks for sharing the pictures. The stitchery looks like a Kate Greenway drawing.

did you receive or read my comment? I put my email address there (2 days ago), but still haven't got the invitation for your Black and White Challenge.
Maybe I couldn't join...
Oh, no...:(

Eileen said...

:-) Not that I'm biased because of her name.. but I think Eileen's quilt is my favorite. Although they are ALL wonderful.
Happy Thanksgiving Jackie.. and thanks again for starting the B&W challenge!
