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.
