Here are two more of Jan's projects; I think both were also made with book pages.
The next two quilts are from Sheryll. The Burgoyne Surrounded quilt was in the block-making stage at retreat, so she has been industrious since coming home. Oh my gosh, I love the colors used.
Susan, a nurse, was late in arriving to the party. She must think that working the night shift excuses her or something! She made the effort to come (after getting her sleep) because Terry had 2 quilts finished for her to pick up. The chevron quilt is made with 30s prints and had a special feathery design quilted on the chevrons and stippling in the separating columns. Jan helped with the quilting by doing the feathers.
This next quilt you saw at the retreat. Susan was sewing the blocks together and finished the quilt top. Now it is quilted and ready for binding. Minky was used as the backing, so baby will definitely get lots of comfort under this quilt.
Last, but certainly not least, I want to show you Laura's English paper-piecing project. Talk about stitching tiny pieces of fabric together! This will blow you away.
*gasp* I will inquire further and report back. For now, you can just gape at the intricate stitching - all by hand, mind you - and be amazed. I placed a nickel on top to show you the scale of these pieces. If you click here you will get back to the 2014 Canter's Cave retreat when I first shared this project with you.
I did not take a single stitch on anything yesterday, but I hope to get back to the quilting room today.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
