Promised Eye Candy!!!

So did you "wait for it....."? Well, get a cup of tea and sit back to enjoy, 'cause here they come...... These are the promised quilt project pictures from retreat!

Mary's One Block Wonder

Sylvia's Feed Sack Dresden Plates - they soon added up to a very sweet quilt top......

Lavana's Birds in the Air

Becky's attempt to win the *Over-achiever* award!

Pam's Belle Meade blocks in progress

Ruth is making yummy warm stars!

And Betty's sweet Nine Patch blocks glow with their cheddar centers

Amy made these amazing modern Dresden-type circle blocks - I want to make some too!!!

Karen was into fun quilts with this cute Jack-o-Lantern above and the bunnies almost ready for Easter below!

Jean is making Bonnie Hunter's Cathedral Stars.... Karen is teaching this class at Runaway Quilter's Retreat in September & I'm hoping to get in!

Susie is learning how to Salsa - Ole!!!

Teresa C's blocks above are all the same block with different value placement in each - fascinating! She also finished up the inner section of her Orca Bay below - you go Teresa!

Sheila's lovely Neutrals quilt makes me want a large bowl of ice cream ..... Just sayin'!

Melissa's Nine Patches give the illusion of sashing - don't you just love the color play here!

Anne bought these bright fabrics in PARIS! Enough said!

Carole's Edyta Sitar appliqué

Candice doesn't even OWN a sewing machine - all of this is hand work!!! She even applies her borders by hand.... I bow!

Teresa C made this One Block Wonder from a striped fabric ... See below!

Joanne's second Wavy Log Cabin table runner

Phyllis put us all to shame with her amazing free-motion quilting!

Charlie's UFO table runner

Becky's "Picture This" quilt had us on the floor playing with the blocks!

Carole's embroidery is exquisite, especially dressed up with those sparkly beads!

Phyl's appliqué board - Frosty made sure none of us stole it :*}

Charlie's Christmas appliqué in progress..... Nothing like getting an early start on the season quilts!

Pat is working on a gorgeous oriental design

Donna is new to our retreat this year, but obviously not new to quilting as you can see from her star blocks! So happy you joined us Donna!

Sally only has about 80 More of these red, white & black blocks to make - snap!

Becky's braid runner

Roxanne wowed us all with her sweet pastels "Blooming Nine Patch" - anybody else craving cotton candy?

Cathie put the most amazing faced prairie points on this cute wall quilt!

And last but certainly not least I'll leave you with Charlie's "Garden Friends" - one we all agreed was a favorite!!!

Hugs & Blessings!
