Show and Tells from retreat mentioned earlier...

I picked out a bunch of photos of some of the wonderful Show and Tells at the end of our wonderful retreat weekend! I don't recall all the names of the creators of the quilts, but even if I did I would only use their initial... 8-) ... You know!!!

This is the dining room where all our meals were served. Wonderful menu! Delicious! This is also where we had our Show and Tell by the fireplace on the right in the photo...

I know this is my friend L's quilt top! I haven't seen it since the retreat, but I know she has added an outer boarder, and maybe finished it off even!? I love the colors and the effect! She did a wonderful job!
This one was a beauty! There were several women from one group that was making this pattern...in different colors of course! 8-)This is one of those Row-Round-Robins. Made with some Laurel Birch fabrics...
Not sure, but I believe this was a Round- Robin quilt.I recall the lady whipping this one up quite quickly! I think the blocks were about 16 inches square. Makes for a fast quilt top hey!?!
I recall the gal making these beauties was not a quilter. This was her first try at it, and she was having a blast with it!!! The printed fabric was all cats. Very cool!
An Around the World done with pre-quilted fabrics. Made to show non quilters an easy way to make a quilt...
The gal that made this one took her time with it.... I believe her quilt group were bugging her about it taking her 5 years worth of retreats. I guess you could call this her Retreat Quilt! 8-)
Isn't this a sweet winter wall-quilt? Love snowmen! 8-)Don't recall much about this one, but isn't it a beaut!?And a flowery pastel... Very cute!I was told the name of this one, but for the life of me I can't remember! It is a very cool pattern! There was an all weekend tutorial on landscape quilts. There was about 8-10 ladies took part in that... They were all beautiful, and each so different even though the photo was the same.
