Buckeye Sewing Retreat Day 3

Judy and I woke up at 7:45 a.m. and were surprised we sleep so late!  We headed to breakfast and it was great; I had a cheese omelett, orange juice and milk.  Then it was back to sewing!!
I wanted to finish the paper piecing of my Feathered Star and get the pieces trimmed and possibly get some of the pieces sewn together.  Unfortunately it took longer to paper piece the border sections then I thought.  I still have a couple more to complete then it will be time to sew all the pieces together.
At 11:00 a.m. we started show and tell.  There were 25 of us with varying skills and experiences.  There were many different projects worked on over the weekend. 
Baby quilts, Mystery tablerunners, Memory quilts, Tote bags, Chenille pillows, Thimbleberries quilts, Twister quilts, Charity quilts made from fabric books, Raindeer wall hanging, Sampler quilts, 3200 strip quilt, Paper pieced quilts, binding of quilts and wall hangings, Friendship Star lap quilt, 10 minute table runners, 60 degree triangle table runners, Fast Crazy quilt demonstration and many more projects.
Check out the slideshow for all the pictures!!!
I had a great time and renewed some friendships and made new friends.  I heard more than one person say that this was cheaper then therapy!!  Laughter and quilting definately go together!!
