Small Group, Big Results

Our Appliqué Group went on a four day retreat recently. There were only eleven of us that could go this time. We were a small but mighty group of ladies. I can’t wait to show you the great things we did in such a short time.

IMG_0929First of all there is this grand illusion. Don’t you love it?

IMG_0938This baby quilt is so sweet. I love the faces of the animals.

IMG_0941IMG_0945It just makes me smile and I’m sure it will do the same for the baby.

IMG_0948Here is a strange looking one. It is actually the beginning of a beautiful quilt built from the center out.

IMG_0952This is my French General quilt. I finally finished it after three years of intermittent work on it. What a relief!

IMG_0962IMG_0966Isn’t this one interesting? Very simple to make but looks so difficult.

IMG_0968Completely random but organized. I love it!

IMG_0970The contrast in fabric colors is very striking. It makes a simple quilt strong.

IMG_0973This quilt was made for a young man who will soon graduate from High School. I think he will love it.

IMG_0976How gorgeous is this one? Love the fabrics!

IMG_0980This beautiful little gem is all done by hand with wool. The embroidery is exquisite! Do you see Noah’s ark and all the animals two by two?

IMG_0981The fabrics are grand in this one. The fish were cut by hand and applied to the quilt. Stunning!

IMG_0982This magnificent quilt was put together with 1″ squares! Unbelievable!

IMG_0984Oops! Out of order! A closeup of the Noah’s ark.

IMG_0989 Isn’t the handwork wonderful?

Can you believe what eleven women can do in four days? Never underestimate a woman with a sewing machine!
