This years sewing retreat was in Corolla, NC. All 7 of us girls were there with our mother. We sure missed our only sister-in-law Cheryl.
Back Row: Sheila - Emily - Julia - Polly - Barbara
Front Row: June - Mother - Coleen
10 of the nieces joined us. Hannah pieced a t-shirt quilt.
Niece Jillian worked on velvet Christmas stockings.
Daughter Autumn pieced a denim quilt.
Daughter-in-law Melissa pieced her first quilt top.
Daughter Rebecca with her finished quilt.
Sister Polly worked on many projects.
Sister Julia pieced a quilt of our Father's shirts. Notice how the values in the different shirts plays an important part of the design.
Four generations were at this years retreat. Afton pieced two quilts and quilted one.
Mother - June - Jolene - Afton
Afton really got into the quilting spirit.
Sister Coleen finished her first quilt.
Sister Emily teaching her granddaughter how to sew. She steers while her granddaughter pushes the pedal.
Sister Polly piecing another bright quilt.
Here is evidence that we did make it to the beach.
One of the quilts I pieced uses the block that will be featured in my upcoming book, "Amazingly Simple Triangle Stars".
I worked on two baby quilts for my grandchildren.
A penguin quilt.....
and an elephant quilt. Each quilt will get a named appliqued on them when the babies are born.
I am already looking forward to next years sewing retreat!
