Hello Everyone,

Day 5 of the retreat was a great one lots of finishes and also show and tell.

My quilting buddy Pam finished her wonderful Kaffe Diamonds quilt for her daughter.  She used all Kaffe Fabric (you can find them here) and did a fantastic job.  If her daughter doesn't love it, I know where it can live.... ;)

Show and tell featured many quilts, but this one from Sharon has special meaning.  At last year's retreat we were all asked to submit a block using the same fabric as everyone else (they dubbed it the ugly fabric) and then add our own.  We all voted on the best one and then the winner's block received all of them!  

Sharon was the winner and put this quilt together, I quilted it and then 7 friends bound it.  Truly a group  quilt and ugly no more!

Jane made this wonderful Judy Niemeyer Crown of Thorns quilt.  Just gorgeous!

Justine's Beach quilt. I also quilted this one complete with palm trees and flamingos.

My Mountain Getaway quilt that was featured in the current issue of Quilt Magazine.  (Kit available here.)

Diane made this lovely architectural mini.

I just loved Lynne's fabulous beach girls.

Poppy is truly talented.  She lived in Hawaii for 33 years and does some awesome Hawaiian quilting.  All hand sewn and quilted.  This one is in the process of being quilted.

Wait a second, what is this.... Pam is knitting at a quilting retreat?  She looks like she is having fun though and quite relaxed.

Justine's quilt is now complete!  It is no longer a forest but is a Christmas forest.  The lights bring it to life.  It is an Alex Anderson pattern and can be found here.

Shirley and Deb holding Shirley's completed quilt.  Way to go Shirley!

Sharon and Betsey with their Strip tease quilts doing their best Wilson impressions.  Now the borders.

I began a new project... Cappuccino, A Party for Four.  It is a table runner and placemat set.  The pattern can be found here.

Many more photos on the Flicker set here.  Tons of show and tell!

Until Next Time...
