I have managed to get a few things accomplished in this long absence. It got to the point that I made myself a list of topics because I had so many things to be shared. I will begin with a follow up on the Canter's Cave retreat from earlier this month - the only 2 blogs I've managed for April were just after the retreat - and I will continue until I finish off all the projects. Let me tell you, there was lots going on!
|An evening shot of quilters around the fireplace. Two hardy quilters are still|
working at their machines, but everyone else gave in to stiff necks and shoulders, and
decided to relax with some handwork.
|A view of our great room; the cutting table is in the foreground.|
See the cool way we raised the table to a comfortable height? Those are
plumbing tubes cut to fit.
|JoAnn worked on this block from leftover fabrics. She made 3 blocks and|
turned it into a table runner. I may have a picture of that table runner; if
so, I will share it.
|Susan finished up these little blocks early in our retreat. We had a good time|
playing with potential sashing and borders. I hope I get a chance to show you
a picture of her finished quilt.
|JoAnn finished off this little wall hanging, which was a long-time UFO.|
I believe she finished the binding as well.
|Laura worked on these gorgeous stars and set them into|
that equally gorgeous cheddar. The finished top is fantastic.
|Sheryll has the hexie bug. She is working on the first of|
a few blocks needed to make a table topper. Each hexie is
approximately 1.5" across. (Maybe. I am guesstimating.)
|Sharon O. worked on these small blocks for a very pretty wall|
hanging. Her work is so meticulous. They are all finished now, so I will be
sure to share that in a coming post.
|Terry accomplished several things, including these stars, which became part|
of a nice-sized throw. This was a UFO kit that she wanted to finish.
|Jan is an accomplished hexie girl. She has quite a few Lucy|
Boston blocks finished and several more nearly so. I will
devote an entire post to sharing these.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
