and here is a quilt made by one of the girls that picked out the Christmas blocks for this year.
This pattern can be found a few places on the web but here's a link to it if you want it....
There were 32 of us that ventured out last night in the rain for our party. Here's a few pics of some of the quilts that my little group did to give as gifts this year.
This was Rosemarie's first quilt from years ago. She had put it away. She dug it out and just got it back from being quilted...
This is a gift for one of her daughters.
A gift for another daughter.
Deanna made this one and she worked on this at retreat. It is from Suzanne McNeill's new book, 10 Minute Blocks. It's based on using Layer cakes and looks like a big bow tie block. (She's got a great Youtube video out there, here's a link to it...)
This is the back of the quilt.
Deanna made this one for her grown daughter, it's a sock monkey quilt.
Lois made this one for a customer.
Rita made this one for a customer too. The customer gave her her baby's shirts and clothes to use for the blocks. If you click on the picture you can see photos of the little guy and some of the sayings in the quilt. This turned out so cute!
This one is Martha's redwork Santa quilt.
This is Dee's snowman quilt. There were 10 of us involved in this exchange. Of course, mine is not finished yet...Dee did hers with Log Cabin blocks and this is wonderful.
I gave Dee the boot pattern two months ago and she made this cute Christmas boot quilt...
Here's my wonderful quilting group. You can't see all of the ladies but we were all smiles and wishing you a wonderful Christmas.
