Retreat Pictures from DFW Gang

I haven't been blogging, but have been working on quilts!  Maynard has a whole pile to work on, but has to do the customers quilts first!  And he has been quite busy, which is a good thing!

The first two pictures show quilts from the retreat.  The second one is an antique quilt that one of the girls was showing to us.  It is butterflies and was so pretty.  All done by hand of course!

The third picture shows the Fat Quarters I won in the Fat Quarter game called " Left, Right and Center."  They are Brights,  Polka Dots, and Stripes.  I won twice  (Yeah!!!) and the girl that had the polka dots gave them to me.  What a nice thing to do. Thank you Brenda!! There are over 90 fat quarters there.  I came home and divided them into color piles and sorted them into piles of six fat quarters that went together for Yellow Brick Roads.  I got 15 quilts.  I added a few FQs in from my stash.  They all play nicely together!!!
I feel very blessed!

The fourth picture is of a block from the quilt Round and Round.  It is found on an online store called Thimble Blossoms.  It looks hard, but it really isn't if you follow the layout piece by piece.

Hope you are having Spring weather in your part of the country!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Thanks for the pics! Thought about y'all over the weekend.

Love the pics of the quilts...and since I like the friendship star, I REALLY like the last one. Could make any size blocks, add a border or two...hmmm...I'm thinking it would make a cute baby quilt! Thx for sharing with us...

We played that game at our retreat too. I won a big stack of dots and stripes.

Glad you had a good time.
