For those quilters who tend to be too controlled in their scrappies, Gini shows them how to make a truly random design - just toss those pieces in the air and sew them in the order they fell.

Diana, another familiar face from VB. Nana, Barbara, Gini, Elaine. What memories!
It's so good to see the faces of the gals I haven't met yet and hope to some day.
Terri, can't wait to see your quilt top, sounds X-rated! : )
Elaine, beautiful quilt! Love that familiar smile.
Nancy, another familiar, smiling face from VB. I'm really sad I can't be with y'all. Can't wait to see your table runner.
Rhonda, love your fabric and can't wait to see your Broken Star.
Beth, love your machine. Take it easy with those snips.
Roxana, your New York Beauty is a Beauty! Nice work!
Michelle, thanks for your good work reporting on the retreat, great pics and commentary. Love your machine, lovely color.
Leslie, love, love your hair cut and color.
Love the pictures ladies - keep them coming! Also looks like the weather is decent - at least it looks like the sun is shining thru the windows.
More ta-da's! Here is Darlene's. She's quite proud of the randomness of the strips.
And here is Mary's cute quilt. Can you see the sparkles?
You all will have to ask Mary to explain!
Finally! Nancy's first ta-da - fusible applique tediously stitched around each edge and cutout. - Alaskan salmon swimming upstream.
thank you Marie
