Some More Retreat Goodies

All of the ladies on the Quilt Retreat last weekend worked on a lot of different projects and got many more finished than I was able to snap pictures of, but here is a sampling of some of the other progress that was made on our little weekend away.  My friend Mary of Keep Me In Quilts made this little Tree of Life block from left over half square triangles from another project.  Mary is the queen of making something great out of nothing!  She even had to size down the pattern to accommodate her smaller hst snipets. 

Along with many other projects, Mary has been playing with wool a lot lately, and finished this cute little wool sheep top on the retreat. 

Starlyn whipped up this wonderfully colorful quilt top from some blocks that she had already pieced,

Then she cut some fabric and made this entire quilt top from scratc ~ and it's Queen size!  She also pieced two Christmas tree skirts.  I was in awe :)

Teresa, among other things made about ten of these beautiful Christmas stockings that she makes out of upholstery fabrics.  I love how she trims them out.  She also worked on a bunch of hand pieced and embellished wool ornaments. 

Tara whipped up these happy and bright placemats and table runner.  

And last but not least, Cappy made more progress on this beauty (my picture does not do it justice).  She has pieced the top and is doing hand and machine applique and thread painting on it.  Although she still has a crab or two to add, she made a lot of progress on it this weekend.  This is going to be the raffle quilt for the Southern Comforters Guild quilt show coming up on March 27,  2011 ~ so keep an eye out for it :)

Enjoy the day!
