Some friends got together this weekend in Cambria. The reason for the trip was to see Janice Minyard's trunk show at the quilt guild in Nopomo (the same one I gave a show to in March). We were there to support her and cheer her on and a few of us to hold her quilts. But after the show...WE GOT BUSY!
Janice finished 2 quilts - embellished one and pieced and quilted another small one - however because they were parts of challenges I am not allowed to show yet.
|The first one to finish something was Barbara S. She made this little purse for a granddaughter.|
|Deo finished this quilt (except for the handles)|
|Then Barbara Sawyer finished this too. She was super fast.|
|I finished binding and embellishing this. (Close ups will come in another post.)|
|Grace finished this spring beauty.|
|Kathy made this - I think she'll make some for the guilds boutique.|
|And she figured out and finished this beauty.|
|Yes, Barbara S was on a roll and finished this little top too.|
|I finished this top - Kathy thinks I should call it 50 Shades of Gray.|
|Janice bought a sizzex and I got to play with her dies.|
|Janice showing Barbara how to machine quilt - hands on hands to get the feeling.|
|Kathy finished this holiday wall hanging.|
|Debbie got the middle of this quilt top done and some of the side borders.|
|I won these block of the months in February and put this baby together with the help of Janice. Will donate to guild boutique.|
|Put the binding on this pink and gray dog quilt.|
|And Deo finished her Halloween quilt.|
|Debbie got the pieces together for this diamond quilt.|
|Kathy started this wool project.|
|And Grace put this little box together too.|
We had a fantastic weekend. A few of us strolled through an antique store and I bought a jar of jewels - some great pins and earrings. I was able to use some faux pearls on the pink/purple and white quilt above so it was worth it. We even took time from sewing to walk around a bit. We ate of course - ALOT! We are all great cooks and we did not starve for sure.
I would love to say it's great to be home and part of me is, but I wish I could spend one whole week up there quilting. Maybe next year I'll plan a week retreat.
Thanks for looking. By next week I'll be able to show all the challenge quilts I've been holding back all year.
