Retreat Show and Tell Quilts

I've been back home from the retreat for a few days but have been helping  take care of a sick cat and trying to get her to eat.  She spent the day at the vet's office yesterday so hopefully she will start improving soon.
We had quite a variety of quilts at show and tell on Friday night.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Calico Garden


Beautiful applique'


Farmer's Wife


Orca Bay


Apple Core


Postage Stamp


Dear Jane made entirely of music fabrics. 


Amish Circle


Dear Jane in red and white


New York Beauty


Love the secondary design of this one.


Quilt made using 3 inch swap blocks.


Another gorgeous quilt using 3 inch swap blocks.


The center of the blocks in this Christmas quilt are from another 3 inch block exchange. 


And remember...................


The rest of my retreat photos are posted here.

 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!

Wow--gorgeous quilts in that show-and-tell, LuAnn. So fun and inspiring! I think that triple-4-patch is the same pattern as the one on my bed.
Thanks for letting us enjoy them with you! : )

Those are some awesome quilts. My favorite is the first one. I love the colors and the embroidery or applique (can't tell) between the other blocks.

Thanks for sharing all the nice eye candy...I keep thinking "some day" when I see people doing all these fun retreats...I'm too needed at home to make school lunches and drive kids to and from school, events, activities. But "some day"....

Wow! Great quilts! a lot of DJs and others with lots of blocks and complexity. The simple ones, like the postage stamp, are always my favorites, too.

Nothing better than a good Show 'n Tell. The quilts made with the 3 inch swap blocks are busy but oh so interesting. Would be fun to study all the different blocks.
