|An Applique Lesson|
These are the final photos I will share from the retreat. The first picture shows the ladies getting a lesson in the backbasting method of applique from our group expert. This was something I was particularly interested in and, although I usually learn by reading, it really does help seeing something 'alive' especially when you can ask questions.
The second photo is a couple of pincushions I received. I collect unusually shaped pincushions and was thrilled to have these to add to my collection. The flower shaped one was in our goody bag along with a number of other things. The fabulous batik chicken was given to me by one of the participants. I had brought a machine for her to use as she was arriving by plane and this was her thank you gift.
The chicken looks like it is smirking. It will have a prominent place on my shelf. Quilter's are the nicest people, aren't they?
