Lots Accomplished By the Quilters Are Crazy Retreaters

All the quilters accomplished a lot at the retreat, though I did miss getting pictures of everything.
Tammy finished the first quilt of the weekend, a scrappy charm plus 1 yard of fabric quilt.

The back shows the quilting well. She used the Easy Scallop tool to draw on her placement lines before she began. Darlene was working on a table runner in the same manner.
