Celebration Class Show & Tell

Traditionally, at the end of the retreat weekend we have a show and tell from each of the workshops.  Here are some shots from each one.  Keep in mind that the applique and hand stitching students have less to show for their time than those in machine classes!
Lucille Amos of NC taught Judy Niemeyer paper piecing.  Above is Mini Stars Table Runner.  Below is Indian Summer. The completed top is Lucille's sample.

June Colburn taught a collage class, above, and another called Print and Paint, below.
Augusta Cole's mysteries are always popular.  Below is her Choose Your Own Theme mystery.
 These 2 students were industrious and completed their tops!
Mystery 2 was Ready! Set! Start Your Machines!
Susan Emory of Swirly Girl Designs taught Equal Rights, below.
And Over Under Table Runner (over your table or under your tree).
 And since Susan was behind a quilt in most of the photos, here she is at the podium.
Rayna Gillman's first day class was Strips and Squares - improvisational piecing.
Her second class was called Fearless Color.
Diane Kirkhart taught Beginning and Advanced Applique using the Appliquick Tools.
 The beginning class worked on mini Sunbonnet Sues and Overall Sams for a pouch to hold the tools.
The advanced class made roses for an applique wall hanging.
Cheryl See's classes worked with hexagons and English Paper Piecing to make Jewel Box, above, and start on a Hexie Daisy wall hanging below.
Victoria Findlay Wolfe was the final teacher.  Her first class was 15 Minutes of Play, and the second was Double Wedding Ring, both based on her books.
Above is one of her samples for 15 Minutes of Play (crazy pieced center) - somehow, we didn't snap a show & tell photo for this class.  Below is the Double Wedding Ring class.
Lots of fun, and lots of productive quilters!
