November 19

Gosh we had the most fun today .... almost everyone was able to come. Cathy and Sharyn we missed you ... hope to see you at our next meeting, Dec. 3.

Becky is back from her Florida vacation with 3 new quilts and some pillows. This one was made for the Relay For Life in May 2009. It's so beautiful. Raffle tickets are available at $1/each or 6/$5.00

I hope you can see the quilt pattern .... the cancer ribbon with a rose in the middle. Becky had this one quilted while she was in Florida.

This one was made for a new baby girl. I tried to capture the quilt motif but I guess I was too close as the photo was blurred. It was quilted all over with dragonfly's. The green border is a dragonfly print. Adorable....

And Becky's One Block Wonder. The photo doesn't even begin to show it's beauty.

The lady quilted it with large Koi in the body with gold thread. Breath taking. The black border was also quilted with Koi only smaller and with black thread.

This is the back .... one strip of the fabric up the middle of the back.

Almost forgot the pillows that Becky is making .... pinwheel pattern. They are pieced beautifully and her new rufflier attachment is worth it's weight in gold.

Check out those tea cups and tea pot fabric ........ oh how I love it.

As you can see Becky is very prolific as she has lots of sewing time in Florida ....... aren't the turtles adorable .... I can't wait to see this wall hanging.

And our fearless leader Marilyn brought us a terrific gift today ....... a big ironing board. Isn't this the greatest ......

The rest of us worked on our projects, cutting fabric, a secret project. Marilyn also gave a short lesson on batting and marking fabrics. It was a GREAT day.

CALENDAR HAPPENINGS (mark your calendars)

Wednesday, Dec. 3 next quilting day.

Tuesday, Dec. 9 "road trip" to Little Hocking and Nelsonville, meet at Church 9AM.

Friday, Dec. 12 Christmas party at Marilyn's house, 10AM.

November 5

I know it's been awhile since I posted our happenings ........ sorry.

Nancy has been making scrap blocks which she then does quilt as you go.

Aren't the blocks pretty ........ this is going to be a great quilt.

I tried to photograph her quilting but it's hard to capture.

Lucy is fairly new to our group. She crochets. Sometime soon we're going to have a class. I can't wait. Lucy does beautiful work.

Isn't this a pretty block? I'm not going to say who as this is a Christmas gift for someone near and dear to the quiltmaker.

Carol has moved to Texas, they wanted to be closer to their children. We're making her a wall hanging ....... this is one of the blocks.
