Charity Work Continues & Valentine Luncheon

Our Charity work for February continues ..... all quilts will be donated to Gabriel Project.

Becky made this adorable flannel scrappy quilt and even made the backing interesting by sewing left over pieces together.

Nancy and Helen work on tieing another baby quilt. FYI ... they did finished and turned the backing to the front for a faux binding.

Marilyn has two (2) more Super Sized Nine patch baby quilts almost ready for tieing.

Becky worked on a purse that she started in class at Quilter's Corner in Marietta. I absolutely love her fabric.

We had a Valentine's lunch at Marilyn's house on Friday.
This is a Jim Shore fabrics ..... made in 2008 on a Quilting Cruise. The pictures don't do it justice. She also was the winner in the class ..... she won having her quilt longarmed by the instructor.

We all loved hearing about the Cruise and the quilting techniques she learned.

We have to leave you now because lunch is being served and cooked by Greg ... Marilyn's son. The table was all decorated for Valentine's Day. The food was out of this world ..... I have to get the recipes.

See you next week.

Charity Work Continues in February

A stack of 10 quilts ready to be delivered to Gabriel Project. (Thanks Nancy). We have at least 8-10 more in progress to finish for Gabriel Project.

Betty shows off her three quilts. These were made from the pattern by Anita Grossman Solomon, the pattern is HERE

I made these 3 quilts from scraps.
This one was based on the free pattern from Bonnie at Quiltville.

These next two quilts (bar style) were based on this quilt from Lululollylegs blog.

This one is like Betty's above from Anita Grossman Solomon, the pattern is FREE HERE

Elaine made these 3 adorable quilts for Gabriel Project. First is a baby rag quilt, 2nd is a panel quilt and 3rd is the Disappearing Nine Patch pattern (D9P).

Two more charity quilts in progress by Becky and Margee.

Marge finished piecing this beautiful quilt for one of her daughters ...... it's wonderful.

Last week while we were all snowed in Margee pieced the backing (below).
NOTE: The photos don't do Margee's top and backing justice ..... they were stunning. Way to go Margee.
Friday, February 13 .... REMINDER
A reminder that we will have lunch at Marilyn's house Friday the 13. Beginning about 10:45AM. Since we really won't work on anything (but can always bring handwork) since we need the table for lunch we can start a little later. Marilyn will have a surprise topic for us.

And as always we invite anyone in the local area to join us every Wednesday at 9AM.
