Retreat Show and Tell

Another favorite part of any quilter gathering is Show and Tell. Here are a few of the quilts from our spring retreat.
Barbara K. shared this little hand pieced table topper, a pattern from our Sisters of the Club 2016 series.
LaRue S. brought this Afternoon Delight quilt to show us. This was an applique bom from our shop last year. Beautiful, LaRue!

LaRue had a few blocks left over so she pieced them into the back. Nice.
This is the quilt we featured at a previous retreat. Deb S. got hers finished it up and brought it to show us. Nice job, Deb!
JoAnne S. shared these two quilts she made. They will be donation quilts to the Quilts of Valor program.

Valerie M. shared this Double Irish Chain. She started this last year at our Spring retreat and got it done!!
 Val also shared this jelly roll race quilt with a twist. Between each strip, she added a triangle. Really nice. Val started this at our 2016 Fall retreat and she got it done! Did I tell you she just retired?
Janet D brought this French Braid top to show. She had started this one at a previous retreat. It really is fun to see these projects both at the beginning and again as they are completed.

Becky E. was working on binding old quilts that she has picked up at sales and had machine quilted.
Weren't these tops lucky to find Becky who was willing to bring them to life and give them a home?
This quilt top also belongs to Becky but it was made by her Great Grandmother. So lovely!
