I could have spent the whole weekend of the quilt retreat walking around and seeing what everyone else was making and I would not have been bored! I took a lot of photos, but I'll try to highlight what I found the most inspiring here.
|Laila's African batiks pop out with the black borders. Did you know that most African batiks are actually made in Holland?|
|Kathy's applique representation of a wrought iron gate in Jerusalem.|
|Jenny's batiks. If you look closely, you will see some detailed embroidery on many of the centre squares in her blocks.|
|Tena's hexagons, totally hand pieced and hand quilted--truly a labour of love!|
|Inchy squares, this one is flannel. I love scrappy quilts like this. If you count the squares, there are over 5000!|
|Heather's "There's a Square in There" blocks, made by stacking 2 prints and 2 background fabrics, slicing it up log cabin fashion, then sewing them back with a mixture of print/plain for each block. Fun!|
|Bonnie's pile of brightly coloured strips. You can see just a corner of the paper pieced log cabin blocks she was working on in the top right corner of the photo.|
