Mary Ann's "Flowers From My Garden" Quilt

Mid-October we had our local Applique Retreat in Connecticut. This is an opportunity for about 25-30 of us to get together, spend the entire weekend doing nothing but applique, and enjoy the great food and lodging of Camp Wightman.

Mary Ann (from Massachusetts) was one of our eager applique ladies. She started this quilt at the retreat this year and just finished the quilt top!! (Two and 1/2 months -- by hand, not machine, except for the sashings and border.) This is what one can accomplish if one focuses.

You are wonderful inspiration to us, Mary Ann!

Didn't get this photo, but I got the last one with the cat and the previous one with Nancy. I wanted to see the 2 1/2 month quilt for inspiration. Guess I have to believe the responders that it is beautiful.

Jayne, you have had this problem for a long time. I wonder if you need to add an updated version of Adobe (or something of that sort) to your computer.
