The Retreat Continued

More quilty eye candy from the SJ retreat.

Showing careful piecing progress on this sampler quilt.......
woohoo another fortunate young man with a loving Mom to make this for him, so very Colorado!


Purple and green, pretty color contrast and a pleasing setting.
A gorgeous batik version of Storm At Sea [still needs the borders, I think].
Lovely autumn colors here.........
and a wide selection of sampler blocks in country colors......
that very effective purple and green combo, eye catching against the solid white background.

My Saturday project, this terrific tote made with a selection of fabrics from my friend Loretta.....


plus that wild print from another quilting buddy, shown here three handy pockets inside.
Thanks Pat for the tutorial!
I think I can edit the rest of the retreat pics on tomorrow's blog so stay tuned for more inspiring quilting projects.

What fun! Very interesting for a non-quilter. Makes me think that I'm missing something not knowing how to quilt.
Love your purse.

I love, love, love quilt camp photos and stories. Oh, how I miss my group of girls (I moved away from 20+year friendships), but , thank GOD above for today's means of communication !
I know I should concentrate on the quilts, but that little purse of yours just stole my heart ! I'm going back to have a look at the link you provided.
Thanks for this post and the one before it........and God Bless you, sister in Christ !
