Coastal Quilters’ 2018 Mothers’ Day Retreat:  Part 6

Here is Jan Kelsey’s “post card” quilt, which she has worked on in previous retreats.  The post cards were written by her grandparents and handed down to her.

The quilting came out really pretty.  Stacy at Marge Hallowell’s Mainely Sewing, in Nobleboro, Maine, did the long arm quilting.

Jan pulled out this quilt last minute as I was leaving.  I absolutely love it.  I love blue and neutral quilts anyway, but a house quilt…oh my.  I love the half-square triangle corner stones too.  They give the quilt a lot of movement I think.

Mac (Nancy) Saulnier and Jan Kelsey went to college together and have remained friends since.  Mac comes to us from Massachusetts for our retreat.  She worked on a “trip” quilt made with bigger squares.  Her husband picked out these colors.  She got all the big sections done on this retreat.

This retreat was Jane Liebler’s first.  She is discovering that she is an “improv” quilter.  Look what she did in the space and time of our retreat.  Go Jane.
