I went to my once a month quilt group for a change last night – for various reasons – mainly winter weather or not feeling the greatest I missed about the last two or three meetings. I was amazed to see 22 people there last night – that is a lot more than usual – sometimes we are lucky to have 12 show up. Everyone must have been glad for decent weather and clear roads finally and wanted to get out.
I brought the last two applique quilts that I made to show and there were a lot of other quilts there as well. Needless to say I haven’t a clue who made them!! I only knew about half the ladies and sometimes I can’t even remember all their names!! I am horrible at names and always have been–no one wears name tags at this group. I couldn’t keep up with it But here are the photos and I will show progress on my own quilts tomorrow. Most of the quilts are tops that aren’t quilted yet and I do think that mine are the only hand quilted quilts most everyone around here has someone machine quilt their quilts, very few do their own.
I really liked the wildness of this one – so scrappy! And I’m sorry I didn’t catch who it belong to.
Cross stitch in the middle of this one and I believe the flowers are appliqued
Some nice sampler blocks
A Grandmothers Flower Garden in progress and I should know the name of the lady that was working on this as she was sitting next to me but for the life of me I don’t remember.
This was a quilt as you go – I didn’t catch how she was doing it but it is not done so she must be doing it in strips.
I thought this was a cute pattern
I chopped the top off of this one and I thought I had it all in
My Traditional Red and Green Applique
And my Uncommon, Common Bride
I didn’t stay late – it was just so crowded and noisy, I don’t enjoy it so much when it is like that and I prefer a smaller group – plus I was just plain tired! There was hardly room at the tables to work on what we all brought with us to work on. I do have my Friday morning group to go to this morning and it is a much smaller group – we have not met for the last two weeks as there were other things scheduled for the room that we use at the church so it will be nice to get back to that one.
