Quilting Retreat Projects

Here are some project pictures from my quilting retreat weekend in NH.

Here is Joanne's first quilt top.  She was able to finish it this weekend.  I love how it is one big quilt block!

And here is her second one which was a quilt kit from Connecting Threads.

This is Denise's quilt top which needs two more borders.  These are 24" blocks so it went together very quickly for her.  I love the big Ohio Star it makes!  It is for her daughter Kimmie who only know the colors of the quilt!

Susan's quilt top is laid out on the design wall.  She finally calculated how many 4" x 6" (-ish) squares she would need to make her duvet cover.  She needs 300 so she is about a third done.  She said that next time she will make bigger squares!  Here is her progress:

This is Mary's quilt top.  She won a package of charm fabric from the last retreat and she is using them as the centers of the blocks.

This is Kathie's competition quilt.  She is entering this to be judged next year at American Quilters Society (AQS).  I though it was simply amazing and so detailed!

Finally, here is my quilt top.  I still need to add a border of black and then one of yellow to finish it.  It is for my Dad for Christmas so I have plenty of time.  This is only my second quilt using half square triangles.  These came out awesome!  I think it helps that they are 15" squares!  LOL!

I will have pictures of the demonstation projects and 20-minute table runners soon!
