Back From Retreat - DWM

My "whacky" girlfriends and I had a blast over the weekend on retreat.  Needless to say we laughed and ate our way through the days and evenings while actually getting some sewing in.
Here's a look at what we accomplished.

Kathy was really driven. She made two Jelly Roll quilts within a 4 hour period the cutest fabrics. She inspired us to try the technique.

It's a Boy - Jelly Roll quilt.

It's a Girl - Jelly Rolls quilt.

Annie (no blog) showed off her skills with a Jelly Roll quilt of her own plus, she showed us what she's been working on for a while.
The Christmas tree is from a challenge from two years ago.

This layout is from Annie's request from a row quilt challenge the "whackies" did.

Molly, our hostess, worked on braided strips made from her scraps. It was amazing to see the rows develop.
Note the wonderful scrappiness, all from Molly's stash which seems to grow rather than shrink.

Kathleen worked on a quilt top from her stash and a hand embroidery BOM that is going to make a stunning finish.

This quilt top was from a panel - WOW!
These hand embroidery blocks are from a winter scene BOM.
And finally, here's what I was up to and was happy to get that far.
BTW make sure you pop over to Judy's to see what everyone else is up to on this Design Wall Monday.
One new mug rug. Look for it to be given away as I post the "A" is for Aardvark blocks.

I finally sewed my red teapots together. The girls suggested that I sew strips between each teapot so I took their advice and added the cornerstones, as well.

I'm sure you all remember this one. I thought to never get those shoes sewn down but it happened. Again, the girls suggested the black fabric separation. All I need to do is find a suitable final fabric for a 2 to 3 inch border.

And can you believe it, this baby is finally put together. I've been working on it off and on for two years. I need to find a border for it.
 I might change out that green fabric above the buffalo. I probably will because it is bothering me just looking at it. What are your thoughts??

What a lovely variety of quilts you posted! Is there anyway I can find the row quilt pattern from the whackies which I know nothing about and can't find on a search? I'm looking for an Easter/spring pattern. This is so cute!! You have a new reader!!

Looks like you had a fun weekend! You sure were busy. Your shoe quilt is too much fun!!!! As for the green fabric above the buffalo, it does stand out a bit more than the rest of the fabrics in the quilt. Do you have more of the neutral that is around two sides of the pine tree block? That might work.

Wonderful quilts! Looks like a fun and productive time was had by all. I really like the teapot quilt - fun!!

What if you tried a half square triangle strip over the buffalo in neutrals or something like you have below the snake?



Don't count the days, make the days count!
