AAQ Retreats -- Livermore CA (Session 2, Day 3)

The Hilton Garden Inn people always tell us how much they enjoy having us in the hotel every year. They especially love "show & tell" and always OOOO and AAAAHH over the quilts when we show them.

This year, we each got plates of cookies in our hotel room with this little note!

On Tuesday, I got to teach my segment, which was on binding. I did a regular double fold binding and a scalloped bias binding; also showed how to do a prairie point finish.

Alex was acting as camera man -- she has worked really hard at learning this and she is good at it! In the picture above, she's making sure that what I'm doing at the machine is projecting on the white board.

Me teaching -- Alex texting??? Hey, the picture's on the whiteboard....

This is Marilyn with her "Stupendous Poppies" that she started in a workshop with Donna Greenwald in Chico CA. Had to take a closeup to get the beading and embellishment details.

Holly had finished her trees, so started on a drunkard's path project. She had made a pile of blocks and was rearranging them in less traditional sets.

Sue finished her quilt on the left and then bordered the compass below....

Barbara added sashings and cornerstones to the blocks she had had up on the design board earlier.

Denise was working very hard at the retreat: Here are just two of the quilts she was working on! I think she finished four....

I took more pictures on Wednesday morning, so that will be my next retreat post!
