Where Ya Been?

Our little group of five had our annual sewing retreat this weekend in Shipshewanna, IN. We had planned on posting each day so you could share in our fun, but couldn't get the laptop to pick up the wireless. So, here's Friday night's show-and-tell. Just two quilts to share - both beauties.

This Buckeye Beauty started from Guild Lotto blocks won by Pat. Pat is the featured quilter at this year's guild show. I have another quilt of hers to share tomorrow. She started a scrappy Buckeye Beauty this weekend.

This amazing piece is Sandy's original design. It's from an ostrich round robin held by the guild. You do all the rounds on your own quilt from monthly round installments. You were allowed to skip one month's round. Thanks for sharing, Sandy!

My workstation - tomorrow I'll share some pics from Saturday's shopping trip.

WOW, those're both BEAUTIES!! Our guild had an ostrich round robin awhile back..I didn't participate and, though there were some pretty ones, nothing as GORGEOUS as Sandy's! Can't wait to see tomorrow's!

Really like both quilts for different reasons. Sandy's is very unique. Never heard of an ostrich round robin before. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I'm a sucker for blue and white and this one is no exception. It is a real beauty!
Love the RR too. I wouldn't have thought to put pomegranates with a compass center but it really works!
