November retreat recap

The guild's second retreat in November went really well.  As usual, Beth fed us well and the members that took advantage of her massages raved about them.  A lot of sewing happened:

Anna was busy with economy blocks and bee blocks.

Carolyn finished her Meadow blocks.

Dara had Polaroid blocks and a quilt top made with Doe.

Leah's Swoon quilt top was fun to see come together.

 Angela with her mini bag

Wendy had a Saturday day pass and blew through a few projects

Meli was a free-motion quilting maniac.

 Linda pieced this top and worked on another quilt with a double gauze backing.

Melinda worked on a couple of tops and some hand quilting.

Liz took the opportunity to try out Heather's Juki machine for quilting.  I think Heather should get a commission on the Juki that Liz just bought.

Carla worked on some bright animals and bound a quilt in time to get 
a photo for QuiltCon application.

Heather was busy all weekend working on the DCMQG QuiltCon quilt 
with some help from Fran and Melinda.

Everyone had their own table and their own turf...I call these the machine shots!
Lisa was making the cutest winter trees blocks to go with her sasquatch.   
We missed getting pictures of what Nancy was sewing, too...
Carolyn worked on her Meadow Quilt.

Amy was hand quilting a huge scrappy flying geese quilt.

Heather was hand quilting the cutest Meadow baby quilt set on point.

We got a picture of Ashley cutting for her projects.

Phyllis and Sabrina were at the retreat, too, but they escaped most of the camera lenses.

The fun thing about a November retreat, as opposed to one in August, is that you actually want to wrap up in your projects.  Thank you all for coming and making the guild retreat so fun.

The new year is almost upon us...and only 3 months to the spring retreat.  Yay!
