The ladies are all excited, again. Pat C (shown in the striped shirt in the center) watched as several ladies showed their "Ladies of the Sea" ship blocks last year at the 2008 Applique Retreat. Pat went home, ordered the material and patterns, and very nearly finished making all of the blocks this year! We hope to see the quilt all finished next year, Pat. Jan (on the left) is examining the overlay used to lay down the applique templates.
