Retreat quilt show, part 2

Ok then, more progress for the quilt weekend.

We were invited to join in group projects if we were interested. Three girls completed their shnibbles one, myself and Anne did the Daisy one, (shall have to check the name!) They were recommended for charm packs.

Jane's version
Helen and Heather's versions...all very different.
...but the

Anne's is here, light is abit harsh, but it's in beautiful pastel florals.....mine comes next post...

Robyn chose a very intricate pattern that would have been the death of me, I could never be this detailed and precise, she got 2 done for the weekend. The blocks were very time consuming, 3 to go for her horse loving daughter.

Chris worked on her Kaffe fassett jelly roll quilt, the colour organisation took a lot of time.

Jane has retired this year and is enjoying the extra quilting time, she added borders to this on the weekend.Posted by Picasa

Almost forgot to show you what I made for my 5 yo niece's bday a week or two ago.

II copied the Russian doll from a colouring book and appliqued it to lightweight interfacing, then ran around it with normal machine stitch to put it on the shirt- much easier than machine buttonholing onto a readymade top. I like the paper doll "M" one, she is at the age when it's all about her name and letters.

Remember, big card launch coming and comments this week could get you something....

See you soon with my retreat progress, Tracey

looks like a very productive retreat... and such a pretty setting. Those horse blocks would have done me in too...

Isn't it fun to see how different the patterns look when using the different fabrics?

That horse quilt will be wonderful. I hope we eventually get to see it finished.

Sweet gift!!! Perfect for a little girl.
