Retreat Show and Tell!

Last weekend a group of us stayed at Uno in Hepburn Springs.  We were very busy bees.  Of course, I won't be showing or telling all because what happens at retreat stays at retreat!  Ahem.

Gail was very industrious.  She finished piecing this jelly roll quilt, pottered with a few more things and then almost finished quilting her Dear Jane wall hanging.

Sue is delighted to have finished the wall hanging she made for her son in law!  Sue also added borders to a hexagon quilt and did some embroidery.

If you see Kay tell her that next time she needs to be in the photos!  Kay made these beautiful Dresden Plates for her niece and partner for their wedding day.

Rosie hand stitched a bit of binding on her quilt as you go baby quilt.  She claims the amount of binding is growing as she swears she's already sewn 5 corners already and she still has lots to do!  Rosie also tackled this quilt as you go William Morris fabric quilt that she started in 2009.

Robyn worked on her squares quilt.  She is hand piecing all of those little itty bitty squares!

Ann is making a quilt for her son and daughter in law to be for their wedding gift.  These stars are going to have pretty sashing edges and the quilt is going to be HUGE!  If you value your life do not ask Ann how many half square triangles she had to make, press and trim.

Photo op take two.  Judy made this fantastic quilt for her husband's grandson.  It took forever to get the fabrics placed in the correct positions but, as you can see, was worth every second.
 And last but not I am with part of the quilt top I'm making for my daughter's best friend (in the UK) for her wedding gift.  It's foundation pieced and lots of swearing went into the making of it.  I also finished sewing the rail fence blocks for a Hat Creek Quilts quilt I'm working on.

We also had trips to the shops, ate loads, drank even more (Tea of course!), laughed, chatted and screamed.  Oh and we swore a fair bit too.  It was great fun and we can't wait for the next retreat!
