Saturday Snapshots 11/14/15 Again with the Quilts

Every Saturday, Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads hosts Saturday Snapshots. 

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

This week I will show the last of the projects that were mostly completed at our quilting retreat in beautiful Ucross, Wyoming. 

A lavender floral window pane quilt top.

I am not sure what this pattern is, but it is shades of cream, green and burgundy. It will have some words appliqued on the border.

This is Eileen's Five and Dime quilt. I made one last year in Christmas fabrics too. It is 10" squares and 5" charms squares that are them cut apart in quarters and reassembled at random.
Lynn made this table runner with matching placemats. Lime and purple appliqued leaves. She will donate it to the fundraiser at the John Paul II Catholic School in our city.

Maggie's Paper Dolls quilt. The center panel has trees, houses, a dad, a mom, a girl and a dog. It is all paper pieced. Maggie and her husband have one daughter, who loves dogs. So the theme fits them well.  Maggie will hang it in their family room.
This is Sherry's Spicy Swirl  table runner. It uses a 9 degree wedge ruler. The picture does not do it justice at all. It is just gorgeous, in shades of aqua and charcoal. It is a Christmas present for her daughter.

 This pattern is called Milky Way. Other of our member have done it in various colorways, but always with white stars. I really like this version of the brown stars. It sort of makes me think of a Milky Way candy bar.

 This table runner is called The Wright Way. It is sort of reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright windows.
Marva Jo embroidered these nine blocks of different crosses. Then put them together in a lovely wall hanging for her mother.

That is the final batch of projects done at the annual Loose Threads Quilt Group's fall retreat. Until next year, that's all folks.!
