May 6

Everyone is WELCOME to join us whether you sew/quilt or not ..... Lucy knits/crochets as does Delores. Oh almost forgot Becky also knits as well as quilts. We're diverse .... we'll be happy to help anyone who wishes to learn ...... hey you might teach us too.

Thanks Doris for opening up the building for us. I believe we were 11 in attendance today.

This bag belongs to Michiel who purchased it at Borders. It is very neat and made from oil cloth or something like oil cloth. I think grocery bags would be perfect from oil cloth.

Now isn't this the sweetest pink/green Turning 20 quilt ...... Betty's granddaughter is going to be thrilled with her new twin quilt.

A few meetings back (April 1) Lucy fell in love with an animal fabric panel that Nancy purchased. The store was out of the panel so Lucy bought herself yardage to make a quilt for her "future GC". Lucy doesn't sew (she knits/crochets) so I offered to help Lucy out. I took her sweet animals home and quilted it for her.

Hey a photo of me ....... I'm always taking photos so you rarely see me ...... he he he

I used the Ebb & Flow pantograph by Lorien Quilting but turned the fabric on my Nolting lengthwise so it has more of a leaf looking type motif.

Check out Margee's black/white with touch of red blocks .... are they not yummy. It's going to make a beautiful queen size quilt.

Debbie wow'ed us with her fabric selection in this 9 patch ...... love all the circles and squzzels.

Now remember last week when I showed you Lucy's knitting project ......... she told me today that she was making matching scarfs for one of her son's and his wife. By the way, Lucy has six sons.

Michiel is getting ready to handsew down the binding on this king size log cabin. This quilt will be raffled to raise money for the local Catholic Schools.

Nancy is going to help Michiel with the binding ...... they hope to have it ready for tomorrow which is Grandparents day at the School.

Oh Helen I didn't take your photo ..... Helen worked on her Turning 20 from last week.
And look what Lucy gave to me for quilting her yardage .... I love it ... Thanks Lucy.

That's all for today. Marilyn will be back next week (we think).
