Thursday night was my small group meeting. It was alot of fun. I haven't posted this week because I was getting all my stuff together for the program. The program I started out with was called Favorite Things, Tips and gadgets...It kind of grew into just tips and gadgets...I tried to show new things as well as older stuff that I love. I think it went ok and no one fell asleep so I didn't feel too badly about it. I did take some pics at the meeting of show and tell. So, here are some quilts and things we are working on...enjoy
This was the first BOM exchange for this year. Of course, she's already got it put together...she's an over achiever! Looks good, Sharon!
Here are the heart blocks we put together for this month....
These two pictures are the blocks for March BOM...
This is just a sample. We can do any 12 1/2" star we want to with Batik fabric and black background.
These 4 blocks are called: Jacob's Ladder variation
This was a Heart Exchange. She received all the hearts for the outside through the exchange. She is making a tablecloth out of this...
This quilt top was given to Jackie. This is one big Lemoyne star. All one piece of fabric. Jackie quilted it on her Long Arm machine. Good job, Jackie.
This is one of the blocks Cathy is working on. Another Christmas card quilt! Lovely. She does this with reverse applique. I can't wait to see the whole quilt put together.
Another one from Nona. This is a Parasol Girl. Her other quilt was little ladies with bustles. This one has a parasol and embroidery work on each little lady. Beautiful work, Nona...
