Berkshire Quilts OPP

Ready for some OPP (other people's projects)? There were 11 of us this year, so there was plenty of room to spread out at our annual Berkshires retreat. While Nancy D. appears to be the most prolific, this year she was also the most willing to have her photo taken, calling me over every time she finished something.

I neglected to take any photos of Marion, who diligently worked on five different sets of previous birthday blocks. She finished one top, and shortly will have four more of various sizes! Kim P., who made us a delicious lasagna dinner on Thursday night, layered several really large quilts, including her Bonnie Hunter Easy Street. I'm looking forward to seeing them finished. She also made an adorable giraffe baby quilt. Hopefully she will bring it with her when I see her this Sunday.
Nancy D. finished her I Spy quilt for Mason.
Fabric book for Mason and Julianna to share.
Baby quilt for one of Nancy's former co-workers.
Elf on a Shelf Christmas quilt for Mason and Julianna.

Joanne finished this Boston sports-themed quilt for her great nephew.

Jean brought in her felted wool wall hanging in
progress to show us. It is her original design.

Jean was also working on these brightly colored pinwheel blocks.
Below is Karen with three of her original patterns. You can purchase them here at her website, QuiltLily Designs.

Here are my friends who virtually quilted along side me.

While I was at the Berkshires, Pat completed 70 cosmetic bags to be used as wedding shower gifts.
Pat, if there are any left over, I will happily take one!
Joannie went camping and sent me a photo of her sewing station on wheels.
Look closely and you can see Alli, the ferocious,
one-eared Boston Terrier at lower right.
I hope that you enjoyed seeing our projects!

Pugs and kisses,

  1. so productive. Did I hear you right? Seven-oh make up bags?! 70 zippers? zowie!
    I like that balipop quilt. Will you quilt it or quilt by check? I want to finish one I started so we can actually use it on the bed. I also like the pizza. Howz about sending one down here? LeeAnna
