Painting on fabric!  No one had any idea what this month’s mystery project was going to be.  With “one half yard of white, washed and ironed (no starch) fabric” being the only item on the supply list, everyone seemed quite perplexed in trying to figure out what we would be doing today!  Well, it didn’t take long for Debbie to bring everyone up to speed, sharing a variety of completed projects she had previously done with fabric paint.

The last day of our quilt retreat was busy and busier!  Debbie’s class was a “Stacked Pinwheel” lap quilt.  It was, according to our infamous instructor, a complicated looking project but very easy.  From the look of concentration on everyone’s face, I wasn’t so sure about that statement but, nonetheless, the results were stunning!  As you can see, from the smiles on everyone’s face, they had a marvelous time!

The culminating event of our annual fall quilting retreat is our drawing for a grand prize.  During last year’s 2016 retreat, participants were asked to bring and donate one quilt block for each day of participation.  Those blocks were then pieced together by Debbie Walker (on the right) and quilted by Diana Beverage (on the left) to make a beautiful quilt for some lucky winner.  This year’s lucky recipient was Ann Myers.  Ann’s response to winning?  “Oh my gosh, I …

Debbie’s West Virginia bird panel class picked back up after lunch.  We had one completed quilt top to exhibit and the remaining participants continued on with their work.  Machines were humming and conversations had died down as folks really focused on completing their beautiful work.  The variety of colors in the borders and sashing were amazing.  Reds, greens, blues, yellows and golds were all used.

Diana’s afternoon class was entitled “Conquer and Divide”.  In this class participants were asked to …
