Qakdale Quilt Guild Retreat part 2

Happy Halloween !! The weather has turned and it really seems like fall is here. Did you feel the earthquake last night? Made me dizzy.....but it was fun while it lasted. The picture below is of the fall leaves next to the cabin we were in. Taken from the deck.

Shirley was in my jelly roll class.....she didn't use a jelly roll....cut up a lot of blue fabric and used a light yellow for the background. Beautiful. After we had finished a project we draped them over the rail on the second floor of the cabin. The cabin really looked festive with all the quilts and projects draped above.
Lucile was working on the mystery quilt all weekend. By Sunday she had all the block sewn together and arranged them on the table. A very fall looking the design.
Here is a red, white and blue quilt I worked on.....a small take 5....done my way. This quilt will go to Manteca philanthropy and will be given to a veteran. Very easy quilt to make. I'm going to sew more of these for philanthropy in Manteca and Oakdale.
I'm still sewing on my mumbo gumbo blocks and on retreat I made 12 more blocks. I still have to decide what size I'm going to use and square them up.....I figure I'm about 1/2 done with this quilt. I like the way it is looking.
I made four pillow cases at retreat. These are so much fun to make and give away to people.
My jelly roll quilt....I finished the borders at the retreat.....I like the way it turned out.

The retreat group on the stairs. I was so tired by the time I drove home that I took a two hour nap. Much was finished on the retreat and I had a good time, Thanks Stacye for organizing this retreat!

I like the blue one. Now I need to decide if I want to get a jelly roll or cut my own strips.
