My friends have kindly given permission to share their projects. There was too much to put on one post so I'll have to divide them into two.
This gorgeous quilt belongs to Connie, it's Quilted Diamonds from Linda Franz and was completely hand pieced. It's been basted and ready for quilting.
Space was very limited for photos so please excuse the quality.
This Celtic one is also Connie's and bound at the retreat. It's hand appliqued and machine quilted.
This applique medallion is a project on the go for Loz. It's stitched on a soft linen and has the most beautiful gold border surrounding the center.
Loz does all her applique by basting over papers first, then she glue bastes onto the background so that the stitching part doesn't get interrupted.
The outer borders are well on the way. I'm sorry I can't remember the pattern.
Lenore was busy with hand quilting it.
What appealed to me were the different blocks used as borders, I love, love this quilt.
The only machining I did on the weekend was this piddly pile of Pies and even doing that much gave me a sore neck. Still, the UFO is a little further on. I'm starting to think all my quilts want to be ten year projects.
Until next time, happy stitching, Janet
