The Bayside Quilters of the Eastern Shore went to Ocean City Maryland for their winter retreat. We had a full house this year. I think it is safe to say a great time was had by all. It is so nice to get away and to be able to do anything you want. You do not have to answer to anyone. It is a wonderful break that I look forward to every year. On the last night of retreat we always have Show & Tell.
Warning: This post has a lot of photos.
Jeannine spent her time hand appliqueing.
Shirley got her Trip all put together.
I got this put together for Something we are doing in Modern Quilt Guild on Sunday.
This piece is also for a Modern Guild demo.
Betty is working on a very large Trip Around the World.
I made this Bento Box using 2-1/2" strips of fabric from Denyse Schmidt's line Flea Market Fancy. We have the entire line in the shop and we do have rolls of 2-1/2" strips.
I made this for a shop sample featuring a new pattern, Flight North.
Sherry was working on a Hunter Star using Deb Tucker's ruler. It still needs borders.
Again I made this for a shop sample and a new pattern I am working on.
Beth made a quick quilt with 2-1/2" strips.
Karen was working on this Double Irish Chain.
Lou made this with leftovers from another quilt she had made. It is from the book "Strip Smart Quilts" using the "Creative Grids 90 Degree Double-Strip Ruler." We have both the book and ruler in stock.
This was Cheryl's first Bayside Retreat. I guess she didn't know we do Show & Tell on the last night because she had already packed away what she had been working on most of the time. The last evening she was working on this Mini Lone Star.
Lou finally finished this top that she has grown to hate. She was so glad to get it done and I think it looks fantastic.
Chevron quilt Lou made for a shop sample.
Chris made a Zig-Zag quilt.
Chris also made a quick 2-1/2" strip quilt.
Jo didn't show us any quilting but she did perform a song and dance.
Jan did some machine quilting.
Goldie finished this adorable baby top.
Jan also quilted this cheater I-Spy.
Beth was working on this black-n-white quilt. I think it still gets borders.
Donna was working on this really large quilt. She said the rest of it is spread out in her room.
Kathy made this batik quilt.
Janie made 3 flannel baby quilts.
Susie and Sherry are working the same quilt together.
Loy finished this top.
Audrey was working on a jacket.
Susie made a Strip Tube Quilt.
Beth was working on a rug.
Loy pulled out some fabric that she said has been in her stash a long time and started this quilt.
Janie showed one of the blocks she got done.
Joan was doing hand applique.
Peggy was working on a baby quilt. Love those owls.
Lucille got a binding put on this quilt that I quilted for her.
Lucille finished up this top. She just needs to get the back ready and she will bring it to me to be quilted.
Debbie just about finished this top. She said it has been 12 years in the making. She was so excited.
Kathy finished her very first quilt top. It is so cool to share the excitement of a new quilter.
Lou and Chris celebrated their birthday on Tuesday.
Some shots around the room of work in progress.
