August Retreat

Our guild winter retreat was held at Swanleigh in August.
I met a lovely new quilting friend, Carla (on the right).
 
Carla brought along this adorable little humidicrib cover to show us.
 
She used thread sketching to secure the appliqué.
 
This is how the back looks. Just too cute.
 
She finished the machine blanket stitch on this one.
 
But Carla's main project was working on Dear Jane blocks.
 
This was my favourite.
 
She is using the book to draft her own blocks - no CD help.
She is also tracing to foundation piece, if the block permits.
 
One of the ladies finished a top. I was struck by how the light shone through it.
 
Another lady was auditioning borders.
 
I found this scrappy block interesting. The lady is writing up a pattern.

We had a wonderful time. Unfortunately I can't show my retreat project this time.
Secret Christmas Business.

Off to the Perth Royal Show today. Hope to have a look at a few interesting things.
