More beautiful quilts from the Winter Camp

Here are some more pictures of the beautiful works in progress from the retreat last weekend. While there I did the machine button hole stitching on my February Snowman Block of the Month. I will post a picture in the next few days. I also finished the 11 blocks from a mystery quilt that I started at a class in September of 2007. I finished the blocks, then got to the part of the instructions that said to lay the quilt out according to the diagram. And of course, I didn't have a diagram. So I will have to do some digging through my sewing room to see if I can find the diagram. If not it shouldn't be that hard to figure it out. I also started stitching some scrappy 9 patches for a quilt that I have been waiting to work on.
The weather man is predicting another snow storm moving into the area later this afternoon with a potential of up to 10 inches of snow. When I get home from work today I plan to spend some quality time in my sewing room. I always have lots of projects to work on. I am very proud of the progress I am making with my UFO's. I just have a little bit of machine quilting to do on my Teddy Bear BOM from 2007. I will post a picture as soon as it is finished.
Don't forget to leave a comment. My contest will end on February 28 and prizes will be awarded early next week.

It is so much fun to see the work of other women. Makes me want to get some of my ideas worked up into fabric.
