Getaway Fun

The Penn Oaks Getaway was a success as it always is.....

There was lots of sewing going on.......

Lots of food.....everyone brings something to share. You could stay in that room the whole 4 days and not even leave if you wanted.....but then there is the shopping you would miss.....

Marti and Rikki each brought an Accuquilt for us to try out. What a fun tool!

and then there are the quilts that get sewn....we are a pretty prolific group for those couple of days.......Sara's braided quilt

Jean's hexagon quilt.....these were all fussy cut and only about 1 inch in size. It is amazing in person!

Maureen is a past president and these are the friendship blocks we gave her at the end of her term.

Suzanne is appliqueing a pattern from Blackbird Designs...I love her fabric choices.

This is Bob's quilt.....he loves to do bargello quilts and is very good at them....he is our only male member. Bob and his wife, Kathy were in charge of the getaway and did a great job....thanks!

 Pat was really in the groove, she finished a soldier quilt and 2 others!

Poor Fay Ann, she struggled the first day with this quilt block but made up for it in the end with a beautiful quilt.

Myrna is a wonderful quilter who also gets a lot done on this weekend away.

Elaine also with a finish....this is a really cool design.

Shirley has the start on a beautiful quilt, I love the red.

Marion has a nice scrappy colorful quilt. Marion I don't see any cow fabric in there!

Angel with a pretty blue quilt.....

Robin with her spring bunny wallhanging....

Kathy has some gorgeous machine applique blocks from the William Morris book.

Ellen has a good start to her quilt for her husband.
One of the things we have are door prizes and this is what I won.............

one of Bob's beautiful bargello quilts that is a table runner. I was so surprised and very honored to win this.
I am hoping to get the things I worked on done and then I will show you.
