Show and Tell from the quilting retreat

I have had lovely weekend away with 19 lovely ladies who share the passion of quilting.
Each of us had different projects to work...
These talented girls have allowed me to share some of the projects they worked on so enjoy their "Show and Tell"...
Only one of the projects is mine.

The colour choices are just fabulous and you can see a secondary design.

Traditional blocks are always so beautiful.

These blocks were machine pieced using the Curve Master foot..

This quilt shows an effective way to use your scraps...

More blocks were done for the on-going charity quilts.

Another great quilt to use scraps...

Combination of a Four-patch block  and Red Work by hand...Stunning !

I progressed a bit further on my UFO ! No quite there yet...

This quilt was completed at the retreat and its a gift going to Japan.

These are some of the blocks for a "Dear Jane" quilt which only uses 'purple".
The amount of work involved in hand stiching these blocks is unbelievable.

This quilt was being quilted as I took the picture and uses Australian and New Zealand fabrics.

Another quilt in progress with stunning fabrics !

Here are some pictures of the cottages we spent our weekend away... Neerim.
