March 26 Quilt Meeting

We had lots of eye candy today at our meeting. We missed getting together during Holy Week last week. We also missed seeing Nancy who is away for a wedding and Becky who is still vacationing in Florida.

Michiel was able to join us today ... we have missed her sunny smile at quilt group. You see she's a school teacher now so can't join us too often. She brought today a quilt she worked on and off for 10 years ... it's dedicated to her father's memory.

This quilt was totally designed by Michiel (left), machine pieced, partially machine quilted and then hand quilted. The pictures don't do it justice ... it's beautiful.

This quilt was from a former guild challenge several years ago. The blue flower fabric was handed out to all members to make some sort of house quilt.

Michiel is hand quilting the quilt. Check out the border.

Clarice continues to work at finishing a piece her mother started many years ago. It will be stunning when she's done.

This is an I Spy that I (Sandy) made for a friend of my DD#2. Meet Jen's new baby Sara ...... isn't she adorable.

DD#2 and Jen have been friends since their WVU college days. The quilt is machine pieced and long arm quilted.

And speaking of babies ..... Margee's grandson will be arriving soon and his first quilt is almost finished, only the binding needs to be completed. May will be here before you know it. This sweet quilt is machine pieced and hand quilted.

Check out Margee's big big smile.

Now remember two weeks ago when Fr. Peterson gave us a special Easter project to sew ..... the chiffon swags (120 yards) turned out wonderful and really look beautiful.

Helen was with us today also ....... I missed getting her quilting project photo. I'm sorry Helen.

Last but not least we are all very sad ...... our dear quilting friend Sharon (left) will be moving to Delaware (DH was transferred). We will miss her very much.

To our newbie quilters ....... sorry I had to leave early today. Took my GD's shopping.

See you next week .................. April 2, 2008
