Retro Day

Our quilt guild, The Newtonia Battlefield Quilters held a mini retreat today. It was called Retro Day. The theme of the day was projects from the 1930's and 40's.
There was a gorgeous table runner with a wonderful vine and flowers made from 30's fabrics. There was a really fast and simple quilt made from 30's fabrics too. Of course I was too dumb to take pictures.
The other project just so happened to be an apron pattern made from vintage apron from the 1930's taught by yours truly. It was so cute and yes I took pictures. Each lady took her own spin on the apron.
Retro Day 2
These are four of the sweetest ladies I know. It was so much fun working with them today. There were several others there today too but they didn't get to making the apron.

We also had to bring our finished blocks for this year's raffle quilt that we sell chances for to make money for the guild to fund things like our Project Linus quilts and quilts we give to our community members when there is a need. (several went out with the tornado we had here and we will be making several more to donate.)
Retro Day 1
Aren't they gorgeous! I am so excited about this year's quilt. I love 30's fabrics.

ohhhh, I love them all together! For that chicken block, was there a pattern for the chicken or is it applique? I'm curious. :):):):)

Chicken pattern is needle turn applique, I am glad you like it. I am Suzanne, the blond in the above photo showing our aprons. The pattern was one of many chickens in a quilt, One of our local quilt shops provided the pattern for purchase and created the cluck cluck club. The quilt I made I call my Hawian Chicken Quilt because I went crazy using bright wild fabric in each chicken block.
