Ucross Show and Share

One of my favorite parts of quilt retreat is seeing all the projects that others are working on.  In addition, we get to see some of the finished quilts during the “Show and Share” times that we have every day.  Cathy put bindings on a couple of small projects she’d had for a long time.  She’d bought a bunch of quilt kits years ago, and has finally gotten back to finishing them.  2016-01-16 14.54.26_500

Cathy also finished a Mystery Quilt she’d also started twenty years ago:

It turned out very nice and it’s a great accomplishment!

This friend — Pat — made a lovely mini kit with Kim Diehl fabrics and pattern.

Here is a quilt I have finished — I had just picked it up from my friend, Virginia, who does the quilting for me, so I shared it with the others at retreat.  I love how it turned out:
