New Friends Show and Tell for the Week
Holy Cow, we have some great quilters in our group! Just a week's worth of show and tell.
M shows a purple bear paw that she made as a gift for a church friend who is getting married soon. She told us about how much she appreciated the chance to join a summer youth trip as the cook and wanted to give her this gift. M is a kind and generous lady and says she will never do this one again LOL
CM shows her "test" quilt made from some Moda fq's and a pattern from Quiltmaker magazine earlier in 09. She did this to test out some machine embroidery she would like to add to a larger version and it is ready to be "hooped" up on her Viking D1. C is being challenged at this time with failing vision and has vowed to only do that which she wants to do. The pattern called her name for months and she is excited to get it finished. She said there were some "not so pointy points" but on the whole is satisfied
CN shows the June Make it and Take it project for the summer months. A quick and easy Patriotic hanging. She mentioned she is getting tired of working in subdued CW type prints. LOL
Last of all here are my BOM blocks so far waiting for the last two and the center. I am loving how this project is turning out and hope my grd will love it as much. I added the applique flowers as a maybe (they are just pinned for now) and just need to decide how much time I want to take to finish the last two LOL The Center is a pretty Carolina Lily variation and I love it so for sure it will be the center of this quilt.
