A Quilt Day

Today was New Friends Quilt Circle meeting and friend PN shared her patriotic quilt. I love how she used the scalloped bunting like print to show off the pieced stars. Well done!
I had to show the finish of my Mariner's Compass quilt all quilted and bound! Hurrah!!! I need to make the label so that I can put the details. I have named it "Gone to Carolina in My Mind" as a memory of summers spent at the beaches of North and South Carolina the colors were chosen with that in mind and I had the quilter quilt in lots of "beach" themes although she did somehow mistake a crane for a sandpiper...not sure how that happened LOL
I also wanted to show off my baby challenge fabric quilt which I just finished up today. Each year New Friends chooses a fabric and we buy a fat quarter then turn it into a baby quilt which we show off in our quilt show in July then all the baby quilts are donated to the hospital for use in the Newborn intensive care or the bigger ones to the pediatric intensive care or special needs.
A darling vintage type fabric was chosen for us but it had the "challenge" of a diamond shape in the print which meant that it would need to be used "on point". I took the easy way out and used it as the central panel and pieced around it LOL I didn't do any fine quilting and even put the binding on my machine but hopefully some little one will enjoy it!
I am hoping to get a couple more projects finished before leaving for NC next week...cross your fingers for me LOL
