Two weekends ago was my quilting groups annual retreat. We had lots of fun, and as you will see, we did a lot of sewing!
We all did a pattern called Contra Dance, which was fun. Basically you sew a four patch quilt like this:
Then you cut it apart on the diagonals, like this:
You rearrange it like this:
And then you sew it back together, and add borders. Then it looks like you pieced it on the diagonal. Pretty cool, huh?
This one is my Mom's:
Debbie's (hers isn't done because she made king size!):
There were four other ones as well, but somehow I didn't get pictures of them. Too bad, because Marilyn's was made of all purple batkis and was to die for!!
