Wallaroo Retreat Show and Tell

In March we (mum and I) held another quilt retreat in Wallaroo. (I am reporting on events in a very untimely manner!)  The projects this time were what we called "petite projects" and consisted of a Cushion, some journal covers, and pencil cases.  I'd love to post photos, but can't find them! Bah!

As usual the highlight of the retreat was the show and tell session on Sunday.  I absolutely love this part of the retreats, it is so inspiring to see what all of our talented ladies are capable of.  So without further ado, here are their marvelous creations.  Sit back and enjoy the show.

The following few photos are of this beauty created by Yvonne.  It is a memory quilt that Yvonne made for her grand-daughter from photographs she took on a recent European holiday.  She mitred stripey frames around all of the photos and then sashed them with Eiffel Tower and French script fabric.  It was truly magnificent and the best memory quilt I had ever seen.

Here is Yvonne with some matching cushion covers she made.


Next up we have this lovely quilt made by Pam.  It is made from one layer cake using the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial called the Double Slice Layer cake.  You can find it here.

This is a lovely Jacob's Ladder Quilt made by MaryAnne from a kit that her son bought her.  It is so fresh.

This gorgeous quilt was made by Bridget.  Last year in July we held a retreat at Port Elliot and the project was the curved log cabin.  This was one of the many setting options available and it turned out beautifully.

This is Bridget again with a quilt made from a pattern that we taught at our Mannum retreat last November.  The pattern is called 1901 and it was featured in Homespun a couple of years ago.  The fabric Bridget used is Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille.  Again, it is so fresh and lovely.  If you like the pattern, you can purchase it here.

To be honest, I can't remember who's bed runner this is.  It is Jan holding it, but I don't think it was her creation.  It is lovely though, I really like the fabric collage hearts.

This is Tina with her creation.  She was using the scraps from this to make her house cushion from the retreat, which was just lovely, as you will see in my next post.

Speaking of Tina - just between you and me, she is very talented.  This is a little something that she's working on and she just made the whole thing up.  She started out with the Dresden in the middle and then in a one woman round robin has just been building and building on that.  As you can see, it is going to be pretty magnificent!

See you soon with some of their works in progress!
