Heart and Hands Quilt Retreat 2016

As usual.....

It was a roaring good time!!

40 women, a ton of fabric and the hum of sewing machines..

This Lion was coming to life by Ester Bangsund

The other 'Joanne' had a fabulous quilt made with vintage doilies


Eileen McKersie made a Lumberyard 
with
 500 different pieces of fabric from her own stash!!


Elenor Hirsh made this Delectable Moutains.


This was the inspiration for my Farmer's Wife border

A Sand Castle Quilt...


Nancy Shirley did a row quilt


and a needle turned Block of the Month


Eileen started these pooches
and
Terry finished them


Heather Piermantier finished a Christmas quilt


Anne brought a picture which made us all cry.


He dad recently passed away and she inherited a box of pictures.

The lady at the center back  is her great grandma in the 1950's


It meant the world to her to see this for the first time
and
to be carrying on the tradition

We all had a tear in our eyes.

Thanks for all the fun, Hearts and Hands!!
