It was retreat weekend in the studio. I love retreat weekend! It’s a long Friday evening and all day Saturday of quilting, laughing, friendship and yummy food. It makes me happy to have a room full of quilters enjoying themselves, relaxing and creating.
I thought you might like a peek at some of the projects that were being worked on.
First is Shirley’s Exploding Pineapple pillow top. Love the colors! There’s a free copy of this pattern HERE.
Here’s a post on a class we did on these with lots of other pillows to look at.
There’s a couple design boards around that can be leaned up against the wall for designing on. Mary was laying out her original design using the wonderful Glamour Girls fabric.
One thing that’s so great about quilting with a group is what we learn from each other. Here Mary, and Shirley are working with Sue on laying out her Schnibbles quilt.
Charlotte was laying out her Schnibbles quilt on the cutting counter. Working out her border.
Julie finished her Cabin Play quilt top and has her snuggly flannel back all ready for quilting.
Jeanie worked on these cute little bags.
Sandy worked on her Ruthie Ann. Love that Esprit de Noel from French General.
It was as beautiful sunny day so Ella spent the afternoon in the backyard. She spent a lot of her time at the studio window hoping, just hoping someone would come out and play ball with her. Or better yet, let her in to play with the quilters. They came to see her anyway, didn’t they? She thinks quilters are the best. Her favorite place is in the studio when it’s full of students.
That’s a little peek into the start of our weekend. What a great start! Have a good one.
Thanks for visiting!
