Sew Night, Lots of pictures

It is always great t see what everyone is doing.

Becky's blocks from the Ruby's retreat. This is the stuff she used to make the petals, she says it is awesome.  

She also made this kindle cover.  

This quilt was one Becky started last year at the Quilt Walk.  

Look at this awesome new yarn netting.  

What a cute pannel

this is another quilt from the Quilt Walk.  

This block is one that is being taught at the Quilt Walk also.  

Mary lou had this cute pin cushion that Roxanna gave her for Christmas. 

Look at these cute Aprons Claudia made from one of Leons old shirts.  She got the instructions from Rae Ann's blog

Another tube quilt.

Fun full cloth quilt. 

LaVee saw a table cloth like this so made up the pattern and is in the process of  making this. 

here are all the blocks for Claudias twist quilt.  

It was a good night to get out.

More pictures, didn't I tell you she had great quilts?

Sherri said this is one of her favorite quilts.  

These two quilts are the same pattern with just the darks and lights reversed.  Hard to believe.  

This pattern is I believe called swoon.  It is one that Nan is planning to do.  It is pretty awesome. 

The pattern and fabric for this quilt were designed by Kate Spain.  I tried to pick up some of this fabric called terrain but it flew out of the stores. 

Love brights.

This is what the front of the room looked like when we got there Friday evening.  There was a block exchange and if you wanted to participate you made one snowball and one 9 patch from brights and whites. I like the way they look.  
Ok this is the last picture from the quilt retreat.  Hope you enjoyed them.

What a delightful trunk show this was.

Again little commentary, lots of quilts.
This quilt was on of the first ones I saw on Sherri's blog.  Right then and there she went up on my blog list.  Love this one.

This Christmas quilt was a block of the month from the Fat Quarter Shoppe.

I think this is made from fig tree fabric.  I really like how the colors turned out.

I should have taken a picture of the table stacked with quilts.

There were so many quilts I am going to have to show them  in two or three days and then only post the quilt that the pictures turned out  on.  I think she  said these were only the ones she chose to bring.  By She I am taking about Sherri of A Quilting Life fame.  I love following her blog because her quilts are the quilts I would make if I was an expert quilter.  

She began by talking about her grandmothers and her family history of quilts.  These first quilts were made by past generations of her family.

She told us that many of her first quilts were Irish chain quilts because that is the pattern she had.

I like this one a whole lot.

To paraphrase that old commercial, you've come a long way from the first Irish chain.  
Sherri sews for designers for quilt market and also tries out patterns for them.
