Sharing more quilts from the star block exchange reveal.
Again, these are the results of a 2009 group challenge, among those of us who usually attend this particular retreat at Jones Mansion, to do something with the Variable Star block. I found out last weekend that the quilt was supposed to "suit the personality of the maker" but I never knew that as I was making and RE-making my own quilt. Was my quilt *ME*? I guess maybe it was.
I have a sinking feeling that I don't have photos of all the quilts, but I have to go with what I have.
From my friend Renee, the lover of tiny blocks and tinier triangles:
That one deserves a closer look:
Aren't they all fun? Yay to my quilting peeps.
The reveal was at the Saturday afternoon tea, traditional at this retreat. This "tea" included the fancy cocktails for which one participant is justly famous--on this occasion Spiced Pear Bellinis and Lemon-Thyme Cocktails--as well as a table full of beautifully presented hors d'oeuvres, courtesy of Lori, the proprietor of Jones Mansion..
Most meals chez Threadlines are definitely not like this, but it's sure fun to enjoy a such a spread occasionally.
