Warwick Part 2 - "The Productiveness"

I just wanted to show a few photos of what the girls achieved these past few days. The variety of quilts, fabrics and colours was AMAZING!
Noreen and Helen both worked on their spider web quilts. This is Noreen's. Gorgeous bright colours and a white background makes it so fresh and bright. She was so quick!  
Helen's is very soft in pastel colours, floral fabrics and a very pale pink background. Isn't it beautiful??
Noreen thought it would be funny to replace one of Helen's pieces with one of her quilts. Do you think she'll notice?
Sandi worked on her "Christmas Story" quilt. I love it!!!  She also made about 500 zippy pouches - okay I exaggerated a little bit - but she did earn the title of "Queen of the Zippy Pouches"
This is Jenny's gorgeous tumbling blocks quilt. It's incredible. So much work in it and I love the reproduction civil war fabrics. It's going to be stunning. 
Laurel worked on her "Floral Dreams" quilt and it is all pinned and ready to quilt. This was huge!  
My lovely sewing table buddy, Tatyana, worked on her very first quilt which she is hand quilting. It's very sweet. 
She also did this beautiful little cross stitch on linen. So tiny and perfect.
And two photos of the quilts I worked on.
A very productive quilt retreat I think. Especially when you consider we went shopping and had cakes and coffee in town as well as laughed and chatted and ate lots of yummy lunches and dinners and walked in the gardens ..... We had so much fun!!!! 
Well done girls!

PS forgot to show you these lovely purchases from Bryson's ....
Sweetest little boiled egg set. 
Gorgeous tea towel, manicure set, card holder and trinket box. Love this shop!!!

I like the idea of meeting with good friends and having such a good time sewing! I´m glad you know such a nice bunch to do all that fun stuff with.
I will go on my first sewing retreat in February, and I am really looking forward to it.

Lovely works.

Jen said...

My goodness, did we really get that much done????? Thought there was too much talking, laughing, eating, drinking, shopping, coffee-ing and cake-ing being done. Just goes to show what can be done when great friends get together and enjoy each others company and friendship.

Absolutely beautiful work by everyone. Thanks for sharing... loved seeing them all.

Susan said...

Lovely projects all round - I'm sure Helen would not have noticed the blue block!!! Even with all the chatting coffee-ing eating etc you still got a lot done.

I'm proud we managed to do so much (and shopping and lots of laughing and chocolate eating too ;) )
