More on my crazy quilting retreat...

We left on a Wednesday in the hottest part of July for a 4-and-a-half day quilting retreat in Canton, Ohio. There were eight of us from Pennsylvania and Upstate New York. Eight crazy, wacky, women in 2 cars intent on having a rollicking good time and maybe...do a little quilting. We arrived late afternoon, got checked into our rooms, unloaded our sewing paraphenalia in our sewing conference room amid hugs and greetings from our other quilting retreaters, and then went out for supper. In the evening we got our sewing places all set up and took turns doing show-and-tell. These are Debi's: a bunny quilt and a scrappy quilt.

Then Bonnie E showed us her embroidered quilt.

Followed by Jean's farm quilt and another made from strips.

Next up was Jodi and her beautiful butterfly wallhanging,
and Lanette and her gorgeous jacket.

Michele follwed with her stack and whack quilt. She shows us how to do that every year and each year more people actually "get" how to do it and make a quilt, lol.

Next was Ruth with her scrappy "Laundry" quilt,
and then Sharon T with her beautiful butterfly wallhanging. She and Jodi challenged each other last year to learn this technique and get the project done. I guess they succeeded, didn't they? Both are lovely.

A group of us did a Brown Bag Mystery last Fall and we had to bring what we received so everyone could enjoy. Here is Josie's little quilt, I don't remember who made it,
followed by Lyn's made by me,
and Marcia S's made by Debi.
Marcia also brought her crazy quilt to show us.
And Josie made a tablerunner for Ruth of a crazy Easter Chicken.
Isn't it cute? More to follow tomorrow.

Happy quilting from Sharon, Katie, and Patsy Cline
