A week or so ago I promised you some more pictures from the retreat I went to in July. Well here some are from show and tell. These first few were just some fun quilts that were shown.
But look at the one below! Isn't is gorgeous! The applique is all done in wool! Now who would have thought of that! I've even worked with wool, but never thought about using it for just the appliqued pieces in a quilt like this. The pattern is from Lori Smith and is called Heirloom Stitches. Patti is working on version of this quilt and you may have seen some of her blocks she has done - they are gorgeous also!
Probably one of my favorites though was just a reproduction tumbler quilt (below). Isn't it wonderful! I"ve been slowly cutting out tumblers for about a year now from 4" fabric strips of reproduction fabrics I've been trading with an online friend. She of course has her finished (or almost finished). Me - I'm still dinking at it! But I can't wait to have a tumber quilt all for myself! I just loved this one.
