retreat weekend...............

It's such a great weekend at Nundle............everyone busy busy sewing on there quilts...........

This quilt will be Calico Wedges

Hard at work.............
Kerry cutting for us...........she is in this spot most of the time..............
Saturday morning the delivery truck arrived..............

Look at these gorgeous Buggy Barn flannels............Kerry started a quilt on Saturday night...........

you can see what she played with on her blog...........it's going to be gorgeous.............

Jenny @ Bird on the Border worked on this quilt............

Sandy @ Shiralee Stitches was making this one with mainly French General fabrics I think...........up to the border stage now...........

More dresdans..........

This is Janice @Jannimary's pile of drunkards path blocks............









This is Googy Girls quilt she made last year.............it looks great...........inspired by the quilt she slept under at my place last year............she knew that is what she wanted to make at retreat last year..............

Just the best fun with these girls...............

Laying out Janice's quilt on Saturday night...............different to Lea's below

While waiting for Lea to google drunkard path layouts on the computer Janice and I did this one.....which is what she liked.........
Everyone giving there opinions.............both Lea and Janice's quilts are much prettier in real life..........the big drunkard path blocks look great...........very easy when you have the templates to cut them out.............

busy busy trying to get quilt tops together...............
Finally a  nice surprise...........Googy Girl ran a nine patch swap last year..........This is Kerry's quilt.........I can't remember what she called it but it had Baltimore in the name..........I love what she has done with the blocks.......I still have not had a chance to do anything with my blocks............but I had been thinking of something in the centre..............
So thats the end of the wonderful weekend.........so much fun, inspiration, relaxing......
Catch you later

  6. Enough inspiration there to keep you sewing for months. Love all the girls projects. Kerry's nine patch is fabulous, mine seems a bit boring now.
