Recap: VFW NYC retreat part 2

Whites, Browns and Aqua, oh my!  Joan was playing with many tonal lights with cream and brown with a little bit of aqua and grey included. She was inspired by my "Lace" quilt. I love the soft palette, and chocolate brown, it feels crisp and comfortable at the same time! She included varied whites, and eyelet, for texture. Very sweet!

We matched nicely with her quilt. :-)

Pati had lived in Japan and collected many fabulous Asian fabrics. She popped in some grey solid and Green/gold Manor Stripes to add some lights and breaks in her rich colors. Adding in some grey and black breaks really gave some nice negative space balance.

Rochelle had a open mind right out of the box! She was thinking of making three pillows, all different, but find elements to make them all relate to each other. 
She was carefully looking at the prints and patterns that she was putting together, (not the Allison glass fabric she fussy cut in the left pillow top) and promptly went home and tried them out in there new home! 

I was so impressed with what these 8 ladies did in their three days. So many good ideas! I had a blast, as I hope they all did.  Way to go ladies!!
