Jillily's Trellis

Mother Nature delivered rain on Saturday ...

... but guild members arrived early with their own version of sunshine!

We were all happy to be at retreat ...
... and couldn't wait to begin Jill's Trellis design!
We began with piecing ...
... and mastering that perfect 1/4 inch seam!
Pressing tips ...
... Jill provided us with sew much insight by sharing her experiences.
In the afternoon, she demonstrated her applique' techniques.
Hand applique' is intimidating for many members ... Jill removed that fear!
She also demonstrated how to machine applique' turned under pieces ... quilters enjoy having choices!
By evening ... many tops were coming together!

What a wonderful, busy, and productive day!  Jill was such a joy to be around ... lots of learning ... tons of fun!  We all left Saturday evening excited and looking forward to coming the next day!
