I had the opportunity to attend another retreat with some quilting friends. I tend to work on fairly traditional, easy quilts while I'm at these retreats. That allows me to relax, zone out, visit, and de-stress (as if there IS any stress now that I'm retired). It is almost like meditation to me; I feel rejuvenated after these retreats (after I catch up on my sleep).
At this retreat, my goal was to concentrate on finishing a large quilt top. I bought the "Marcus Fabrics Strip It Pack" jellyroll of earth-tone fabrics from Craftsy while they were on sale for $20.07 and made the background from my stash for this one.
Robin made this large chevron quilt with some bold "modern" fabrics. You can find this Giant Chevron quilt on the Sunlight in Winter Quilts blog.
Her daughter, Audrey, likes orange and green. I'll bet this quilt is hers. Donna says this is a variation of the Disappearing 4-Patch block. She used a Lily's Garden Spice charm pack.
She used a charm pack she had to make this baby quilt.
She liked Robin's Looking Glass quilt so much she whipped one out.
This snowman throw uses an embroidery set from Designs by JuJu.
The snowmen blocks are machine embroidered. Here is a closeup.
My next post will finish up Donna's show and tell and show you things done by the other retreat participants.
