Retreat Quilting!

This past weekend I spent an amazing weekend quilting away with my friends!

These are some of the projects we accomplished:

Here’s a Farmer’s Wife block:

Here’s a quilting challenge piece from my longarm guild.  We are all piecing the same quilt & then quilting it our own way.  These will be on display at MQS this May!  This is one of my favorite exhibits- I love seeing all the different styles & inspirations the same quilt can give people!

This top was completed by a dear friend.  She’s been working on this top since the mid 90s & let me tell you- she was happy to have this done!  This was also her first quilt!  Didn’t she do a great job as a beginner?  (Note, this is a Quilt in a Day pattern)

This top was completed by another friend entirely this weekend! (Actually, in 1 day I believe!)  This will be for her grandbaby’s new twin bed.  Her plan is to quilt it with monkeys!  Isn’t that great?  What kid wouldn’t want to sleep by themself if they had a quilt like this?

Some other projects that people worked on, but I failed to take photos of (bad blogger!) were:
Farmer’s Wife quilt– yes, this friend completed all 111 blocks & was assembling the top at the retreat!!
Paper pieced lanterns– think of the oriental lanterns pieced with fun bright fabrics
– A Judy Neimeyer tablerunner
– A Crabapple Hill Sampler
– And I did a special project I can’t show photos of quite yet- but I’m sure you’ll love it!

  1. I love quilt retreats! Glad you had fun at yours. I also love the monkey quilt, although huge kudos to the person who finally finished her quilt from the 90s! She’s got to feel great about that! I’m really looking forward to seeing your projects progress too. I agree–it’s fun to see what different people bring to the table, working on the same blocks.
