Everyone always brings whatever projects they wish to work on for the weekend and there is never a shortage of inspiration in the room. This particular retreat had a few "Linen Ladies" working on their pieces and WOW...they were fabulous! I just had to share with all of you...
She was initially disappointed that the quilted star in the middle of her piece didn't show well so she added a crocheted pineapple doily in the middle and then beaded it down....beautiful!!!
This was a runner that she placed on cotton yardage. She created her own quilting designs which are hard to see here but it is stunning in person. She was in the midst of adding beautiful feathering around the edges to nail it down.
Janet Alexander is a fabulous Linen Lady as well but she worked on a small project off and on all weekend. This started out as a fat quarter of a two-tone silk and it is stunning...
Besides all the beautiful quilting one of the things I enjoy the most is the love, support and sharing that occurs at these retreats. You hate to leave on Sunday but you leave with your heart full!
Hugs, Cindy :)
A sweet sweet post. The quilting community is connected together with heart strings.....sigh......
Sounds like great fun. Just wish I could have joined you. Love seeing what everyone worked on. They are all absolutely beautiful heirlooms.
Oh my......how much more wonderful could things be? Only wish I was there with you.
