Quilt Retreat on Blue Mountain Sept. 2013

I had a great time at our Grayson Country quilters retreat this year.  We learned how to make a simple jelly roll quilt.  It was so easy I made 3 tops while I was there.  In addition Jonny Imlay taught us how to make twister quilts, and Debbie Bayles taught us how to do a cute pumpkin wall hanging.  I was able to finish all five projects...a record for me, as I haven't made a pieced quilt since I was guild president two years ago.  Here is what I made:

 Ashley, my daughter-in-law helped me make the circle embellishments for this polka dot quilt.

I also finished two table runners, as well as this Halloween  wall hanging.

My first jelly roll quilt, which reminded me of the ocean, so I added on the fish
