Asilomar girls create great color, happy stories and use Process to stretch!
It is fun to have serious butterflies and funny ones too. Judy did a funny one and I love it's face!
The quilt below was made for a daughter who is graduating from Nurses School...we all laughed over the nurse sayings -very fun!

Below is Carol's quilt, I love her colors and style!
Robin brought the most amazing colors...soft and kind of contemporary and we learned about how gray is a cool color and can recede like green, purples and blues....gotta show it whose boss with a few little secrets. This is beautiful..
Below I think this is Linda's wonderful blocks and she is doing a story about the seashore and her Grandkids...darling and beautiful blocks too!
This is Judy's happy quilt that will be called "Lil Dudes" about her twin Grandsons...very happy picture in the middle of these happy blocks!
Below is Leslie Matthews who has taken my class before and she had made a Baby Hawaii" quilt for her Granddaughter and then her other little Granddaughter said "when do I get MY Baby Hawaii 'quilt? So here is the second one getting done. isn't it wonderful?
Below is ___(having a senior moment cannot remember her name but will and will add it) and she didn't want to start with the border so then she did some border and then got her girl larger and then got her items in there the right size etc. She decided to do a story about the places she has gone and visited....she also was doing an amazing cow but I cannot find those photos...nuts!
Below is the room or part of it...we had tons of room to enjoy creating!
Below is Biddy's quilt- she lives in Arkansas and she has a touch with contemporary looks ...isn't this gray wonderful? Her cow is awesome and she got most of her blocks done but I didn't get a photo....very cool!
Below is Elise's quilt-she is from Mass. and she has great color sense and fun. here she is looking to see if a cow will show up on this wonderful background! Her colors are super and she taught us all a lesson on value.
Look at these dainty and beautiful blocks! I think these colors are fabulous and will be the perfect springboard for a story quilt! LOVE this!
Below is a border by Dwyta who lives in Spokane. I live in a small communtiy next to Spokane so we will probably work together when my life gets simpler. She might turn this into a cow. Once people saw the cow I brought they were inspired. Love the ideas in this creative and inventive class. Very nice having people who were willing to stretch and do something different!
I think these colors are so pretty! Just the ticket for a happy quilt with a great story!
We all laughed and LOVED this coffee pot by Margaret because if you turn it on it's side, it is a fish! Pretty wonderful, happy and inventive too! Margaret kept adding bits of black and white and it just added so much! Loved what the San Diego and oregon girls did...their tables were together.
Nancy Donahoe who has taken three of my ASILOMAR CLASSES Qwas working on an Antarctica quilt. It is her with wonderful penguins all around. She was appliquing it so it took some time. She has a fabulous pieced black and white and random colored blocks border. It is going to be awesome! Her drawing was adorable.
