AAQ Retreats -- Session 1 Show & Share (Part 2)

A number of people are responsible for making these retreats work and Susan Moore is a big part of that. Alex tells us that Susan is the reason that these retreats are even held as she is the person who does all the organizing -- dealing with all of the details, such as working with hotel personnel, figuring out the menus and accommodations, answering all the questions that our retreaters have -- it's a big job!

But somehow she still finds some time to sew -- this is her neutrals quilt that she started during the retreat a couple of years ago when our teaching focused on using neutral fabrics in our quilting.

And this is a friendship braid quilt that she did -- I quilted this one and am in the process of quilting the neutrals quilt; just have the border to go....

Cindy shows her Hawaiian style applique in all those wonderful colors and, below, her puppy quilt!

Erica is one of the funniest people I have ever met -- quick wit and big quilts!

And another one of Erica's, a basket sampler....I really like the way it is set -- lots of room for quilting.

Linda cracked us all up telling us about the "big trees" and the "little trees" -- we're all looking at this and saying "What big trees??"

Another one of Linda's -- all hand embroidered with the piecing around it. This is a Crab-apple Hill pattern. The quilt on the pattern cover is done in reds -- I love it in blue!!
