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!
