Home again

Am back from the retreat now and preparing for the Guild Quilt in tomorrow, it is set up this afternoon. But first some photos of projects from the retreat to share
Tracy is working on these beautiful batik blocks

Barb is making a four patch edging for her foundation pieced quilt

Judy had put together some beautiful cross stitch pieces to make a wall hanging to go above a bed. They were made by the mother of the owner of these pieces and they had been wrapped up in a towel for 25 years. 

Judy then went on to make these lovely blocks from Japanses fabric her sister brought back from Japan for her.

A close up of the beautiful batiks.
The retreat has many beautiful quilts around the house

This one appealed to me, although the colour was darker in real life, great free motion circles holding the circles in place.
Loved this one hanging on the end of the bed

This one was rolled up in the lounge room

And this one was in a basket in the this pattern.
This is a quilt top Linda is working on, it is a pattern by Irene Blanck,

Beautiful stitching 

Linda's work is just beautiful.
The tablet battery is nearly flat so I had better finish up for now, the Supervisor is whinging for a walk...better get my skates on. Will catch up with blog reading later today.
Happy sewing.
