Are you still with me on the quilt retreat adventure? Hope so. I love sharing all the talent amongst our group. Over 50% of these girls have been with me since my first retreat I organized in October of 2013. And the rest is history.
I'll start this post with the many faces and talent of Bekki aka BB. Sometimes creativity takes some math and sketching.From happy to "You say What?!".
She started this quilt a year ago at retreat and finished at this retreat. Yahoo! Sew pretty.
At the very end of the retreat Anna gave her 24 layer cake blocks and a pattern. Bekki completed that pattern in 2 hours.
She made those 24 blocks go from this....
The turquoise honeycomb and the little bee are perfect.
It turned out beautiful. It's going on her bed. Everyone keeps hiding behind there quilts.
Now she didn't get to hide when she won the jackpot when we played L*R*C.
Normally we bring 5 fat quarters each to play with but we decided at last retreat we'd play with 5 $1 bills then the winner could buy the fabric or fat quarters of her choice.
I would vary the theme for the fat quarters but sometimes they weren't everyones favorite but we decided everyone liked dollar bills. Of course her significant other might wonder what strip bar she went to. LOl I don't think she made it home with the money. She bought fabric from the bus and at the on-site quilt shop.
