Progress All Around

Hello Everyone,

Back for Day 2 of our quilt retreat.  We were treated to having a quilt appraiser stop by for the day and several of the ladies took advantage of her services.  She also spoke to us for a little while and we really learned quite a bit.


This quilt was definitely one of the ones I wanted to show you.  This quilt has won multiple ribbons, most recently at the Vermont Quilt Festival.  So the quilter really wanted it appraised.  Not sure what the value was, but I am sure it was fabulous!


This little quilt was made by Robin.  It was a challenge in thread painting.  I loved it because it was so unique.


Let's hear a BIG HOORAY for Sharon, this is Sharon holding her very first quilt she has ever made!! Fantastic!  I was so glad to be there for it too.  


I began to work on my African fabrics and really went to town.  You can find some here.


Remember yesterday's blog post... well Pam has made a ton of progress.  Isn't it fabulous?


Joan finished up a Lil' Twister quilt.  You can find the template here.


Sharon finished her Autumn BOM quilt.


Just loving Darlene's Batik quilt.


Another BIG hooray for Maria!! Her very first Judy Niemeyer quilt.  This is the Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt.  You can find the pattern here.


My African quilt is shaping up!


Stephanie finished another pinwheel quilt.


Justine is making tons of little trees!

Stay tuned for the next installment on the quilt retreat progress.

Until Next Time...

Very encouraging to cheer each other on whether it's a very first quilt or a very first complex pattern. Job well done ladies. That first quilt photo is AMAZING.
