Quilting Retreat 2010 Part 4

The last day of the retreat saw activity in the dining room of Fuller House. The friendship quilt is tied with buttons and pearl cotton, with the option of hand or machine quilting in the borders. Prairie points are also tied down with buttons.

Here are Gale and Sharon studiously working on tying those buttons! You can see the edge of Myra's beauty in the lower right corner.

Off the dining room is a screened porch, where we usually sit for meals. There is a great view of the grounds from the porch, and you can see some rockers on the right side of the picture. Porching is a definite activity at Wiawaka! Here are Lucille and Kathleen.

And Cindy and Nancy.

Show and tell was lots of fun. Liz brought some of her art quilt projects; Nancy brought some samples of things she will be teaching this fall. Others brought quilts and tops galore; this is a very productive group! Last year's project was an eight-pointed Star of Hope which I designed and is hand pieced. Gale brought hers from last year--she just finished the hand quilting. Note the 3D work in the center. (The picture is skewed--her quilt is perfectly straight!)

Cindy liked the project so much that she has done a second. She is still designing the applique for the center. Note the fussy cut star points--just WOW!

All good things must come to an end. Here we all are on the steps that lead to the House of Trix. What a fun time we had. Thanks, ladies, for the wonderful memories.

Tomorrow--a surprise!

Hugs til then,
Sharon

P.S. Yes, I am wearing shorts--I wore shorts every day. Who knows? Maybe next year I'll wear sandals!
