retreat wrap up #2
This picture will not near do Kim's quilt justice. It is the "Eureka" pattern from Animas Quilts, a Jackie Robinson design. Kim's fabrics were probably the same ones used in the quilt on the cover of the Keepsake magazine or close to it. I think she said that this was only her third quilt---WOW! She is hand quilting it and was keeping those fingers busy. We just couldn't get it high enough or straight enough for full out viewing.
This is a top that Debora was finishing up as well---this was another of the quilt shop retreats from a year or so back. (Joy had made several re-sized block tops for the kids and I know I mailed them to HQ late in 2006). She used Hawaiian prints for this one. Oops, some of my blocks peeking out from underneath on the design wall. Tell you about those later.
This is Joy's daughter Woodlyn (who came up from Texas) with her fall themed quilt. 16 patches with alternating pinwheels. By Sunday afternoon she only needed to put on the final border. Woodlyn used a focus piece of fabric with blue skies and a country fall scene but her daugther who also quilts really did not like this top. We all did though! It is to go on the guest room bed and Alicia told her mom that she might expect the houseguests to drop off. (I said if it worked, I might need to borrow it to keep the golfing buddy away, LOL) Anyway, one of the shop owners came back with a "we, the undersigned think that this gorgeous quilt" or words to that effect and we all signed it. Actually, Mamie then printed it on a fabric label and we signed it again.
This is another of Woodlyn's quilts---just picked up from an Alabama long armer and will be given as a wedding present soon. I think it is a quilt from Nickel Quilts but I recognize the pattern as "Jewel Box"
Looks like I have to do one more post---my output in that one.
