it's a wrap

Sunday morning came and went far too quickly.  A flurry of gathering up, hauling out and loading in preceded many rounds of farewell hugs and well-wishes.  Some of the group will see each other regularly, others will not have contact for several months until the next retreat.  Everyone always hopes that the others will be able to make it to the next scheduled event, and usually they do, come hell or high water!

Many quilts and bags and tablerunners and wallhangings were started and/or completed, many more than I have been able to capture here for you.  What I have shown is just a sampling of the fabric fun that we had.  Here's a few more:

Marilee's Story Territory quilt, full of potential for a special little guy.  There were 4 new 1st time grandmas on this trip, so plenty of oohs and aahs over little baby pictures.

A good use of the Quilt MN fabric, and now I've forgotten for sure but I think this was Mary's!

Again with the Christmas quilt for Margaret!  She had more Christmas fabric in her stash than anyone else!

And a return to Thimbleberries for Lois--

Lots of little eye-popping zig-zag on this little snowman for Mary--

And Cindy P. put together the blocks for this quilt, and selected borders to go with it.

All in all, a lot was accomplished.  As for myself, I have some work to do to finish up my Lattice Quilt and get it quilted soon so it can be offered on the winter class schedule.  Once that's done, I can go back and complete the 3 things I have started for a ruler demo workshop.  That's the plan!
