Quilt Retreat #1

 
 
I attended my first quilt retreat! I did not get very much accomplished. I spent the first day and a half working on a flying geese quilt. I assembled the blocks, then fussy cut the borders. I had one miscut, and now I must replan the borders. Grrrrr. I was so disappointed. I don't even have a picture to share.
 
So, instead I machine quilted this one using just straight lines that follow the zigag. Needs binding.
 
I also worked on the Autumn Beauty but it is not assembled yet.
 
I also helped a friend plan a few quilts. This is one top that she was able to complete; the colors are way off, as it is actually purple and teal.
 
Here are a few quilts that others were working on!
 
Grama's flower garden, a class project. The teacher of the class values this one at $1500. It is an amazing quilt with beautiful machine quilting.
 
 A Batik strip quilt!
 
Beautiful pineapple quilt; the borders really make this one special.
 
 Christmas, anyone?
 
 I love the layout of this scrappy strings quilt!
 
 A Kaffe Fassett beauty!
 
I will be attending a second retreat in a few weeks. Hopefully I will have some finished projects to show off after that one!

Well, frankly, I like your two examples best of all you showed. Tough luck on the mis-cut, though. You'll find a great replan for those borders, I bet.
