AAQ Retreats -- Session 1 Show & Share (Part 3)

Dawna makes a lot of quilts for her Moda University club at the shop she owns, Bolts in the Bathtub. They use a number of fabrics and Dawna calls them "controlled scrappy" as she doesn't like totally random scrap quilts.

This is a "Tennessee Waltz" quilt; I'm not sure, but I think this was also a Moda U. project. If not, Dawna made it for a class she's teaching at the shop.

Green is Holly's favorite color -- it shows! Love the fabrics in this....and in the quilt below, there is a lot of room for Holly to do some fancy quilting with her long arm!

Deb Silva is the other person on whom this whole retreat depends -- she sets up all the rental sewing machines, checks everybody in and gets them settled. She also handles any logistical problems that come up during retreat.

The first full day of the retreat features "dinner on your own" where everybody takes off and goes shopping in the afternoon and has dinner out. Deb checks all of the hours of the quilt shops in the areas, provides maps and discount coupons for everybody and pairs people without cars to people with them. She is such a good resource person that our motto is: "Deb knows everything!"

Kathy shows her square-in-a-square design...

Looks like Danelle has been busy this year! She had a few quilts-in-process in the classroom that were the result of block exchanges.
