Quilting Retreat 2010 Part 2

Day Two saw significant progress on finishing the tops. First up is Sharon, who decided to make a wallhanging for over her granddaughter's bed. It will coordinate with the quilt she has made for her bed. Perfect for a little girl!

As a group we decided to use fabrics that reflected the colors we saw around us in August in Lake George. Sandy's top has prints for the center and plaids for the prairie points. A soft, serene palette.

Liz chose many Kaffe Fassett fabrics for her top and then traded extensively with the others to make this truly a friendship quilt. Liz does fabulous art quilts. See the "W" in the center of the quilt? Liz designed a paper pieced pattern for that--reflecting the W made of twigs on one of the bridges at Wiawaka. And she brought the pattern to share with all.

Myra with the center of her top. She used many shades of green, with white and off-white lights and highlights of gold and other fabrics she got in the trading. She framed her W with stunning birch tree fabric she brought and shared.

The story continues tomorrow--same quilt time, same quilt blog. Stay tuned!
