|(1) Georgia's scrappy pineapple Q|
I'll show my projects next time. For now, here are the much more impressive projects shared by the other "retreaters." (All photos will enlarge with a click or two.)
|(2) scrappy spiderweb Q by Becky|
(1) Georgia has been working on her scrappy 12" pineapple blocks and put them all together on Saturday. Pattern is from Positively Pineapple. She will be adding a border.
(2) I think the spiderweb Q made by Becky is from a Fons and Porter pattern, but I didn't find it in their "Best of Scrap Quilts," as I thought I would. Triangles are 6" tall.

|(4) Blogger Girl quilt by Pat|
(4) Pat made the Blogger Girl quilt (from Open Gate Quilts) using red and green fabrics with gold highlights. She worked hard on the sashing -- the on-point squares are labor intensive, but they're stunning when they're added to the quilt to frame the blocks.
|(5) Aunt Gracie's Garden by Sue (border to be added)|
NOTE: There are no curved seams here--only the appearance of some. Look carefully. It's a combo of HST next to squares made with Tri-Recs tool by EZ Quilting. Google "Tri-Recs" and you'll find photos, tutorials, and ideas galore.
|(6) guild mystery Q by Kris|
(6) We've been given all steps for our guild's current mystery quilt. This is Kris's version. Some gals used one fabric for the alternating snowball blocks; others used varied fabrics, as Kris did here.
|(7) a super stash buster by Georgia|
Georgia added a 3" black border, then a border of squares, four squares wide. My quick estimate is that there are more than 3000 2-inch squares in this quilt. I'm also estimating it's around 84" x 93".
I have a lot of 2" squares and some iron-on grid interfacing, so I could start one any time. I also have a daughter who enjoys the artistic arrangement of quilt blocks. I think she'll enjoy arranging those squares for me--at least for a while. (I'll take the help as long as I can get it.)
I hope you had a quilty weekend. Mine was filled with inspiration and relaxation.
