Mae had this little kit given to her and she whipped this up on Sunday morning. She also completed a number of paper-pieced projects that she had on the go.
Karen made a ton of 1/2 square triangles and then started laying them out - I heard her mention something about hidden blocks in the layout . . . I think I see a couple of pinwheel-type blocks in there.
Marg worked on sewing the binding on this quilt ALL weekend - it is huge! It is a raffle or donation quilt I believe - sounded like there was quite a number of ladies involved with the making of it.
Sheila is making a quilt/duvet cover for her granddaughter and the fabrics are pretty eye-poppin'. I love the stripes, dots and checks all mixed together and of course the colors are fantastic. There's lots more to do on this one - applique is the next step after all the blocks are prepared.
This is a quilt that Sheila finished up from one of the workshops we took a couple of months back. I worked on mine as well but was busy taking photos of all the other projects I forgot to take one of mine.
Gail was working on some dazzling paper-pieced pattern and I think the finished quilt will be outstanding - I hope to see it finished by the time we schedule another retreat.
Joan was our official "bag lady" and this was the first one she made over the weekend - I think it is gorgeous! Love the black and white.
I was asked to prepare a few demos for the weekend and this was one of those - a little camera case made using this pattern - Here. Sure beats the camera knocking around in the bottom of my purse without a cover! I think this turned out great. The only change I made to this pattern was that I wanted to demonstrate how to make a covered button and of course I didn't want a huge buttonhole on my pretty little camera case, so it is just decoration. There is a small snap sewn to the inside to hold it closed.
A little zippered pouch - made using this Here pattern. Freaked out a couple of gals when they saw the zipper . . . but really it is soooooooooooo simple to do - give it a try, it doesn't take very long. The only change I made to this pattern was that I wanted mine to be quilted so that it had more substance to it. Just cut four of the required size rectangles and sandwich some Warm & Natural between two pieces and channel quilt using a 3/8" or whatever foot you have in your stash. The rest of the instructions are the same as written.
