Better Late Than ...
I was out of town over the weekend with no opportunity to blog. Also no time to sew, either, so nothing to report. Therefore, I thought I'd post a few photos of what some of the others were working on at the S'mores retreat.

I wish I had gotten the name of the fabric.
Ari finished the center of her flip-flop quilt gifted to her by her secret sister last year.
The beach umbrella fabric she used for the alternate blocks is absolutely perfect! The border will be a dark blue marine print with fish and sea creatures.
Kristen finished assembling Log Cabin Star Table Topper that she started in one of my classes several years ago.

At that time we were working from Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin by Marci Baker and Sara Nephew. A stand-alone pattern has since been released as Log Cabin Star by C&T Publishing.
Several of the girls were working on their Stems and Stones from a recent Kelly Young class.

Nancy was the only one in class who used a dark back ground and it gives the quilt an entirely different look. It's all batiks, none repeated; the background is a very dark navy.
And in this photo you can see an edge of Lisa's Wedding March.

You can also see that we like to "loosen up" at retreat!
