I had high hopes of having something finished to take to my monthly quilt group meeting...alas,'twas not in the cards! Maybe next month! But some people did get things done...here, take a look!
Marsha brought in her newest creation - a circle quilt she made for her daughter. You may remember that our humble little quilt group has a obsession fascination with circle quilts...I think we all have a couple of them - or more! And you can find the BEST circle quilt tutorial on Stephanie's blog, just click here. Marsha's circle quilt is a little different from our "norm"...her circles are much larger - we all liked this a lot!
This is Janet's red and white pinwheel - it's a beaut! I love her saw-tooth border! I have a red and white pinwheel quilt and it's my very favorite (I think I say that about all my quilts!) and I think this will work it's way into a special place in Janet's heart...red and white quilts just seem to do that. And have you noticed that red and white quilts seem to work all year long? They go with Christmas and Valentine's and the Fourth of July - and Memorial Day and Labor Day ...so if you don't havea red and white quilt in your arsenal, better get one!
Helen made this very sweet "shabby-chic-style" quilt for her granddaughter Rachel - for her upcoming wedding. Don't worry, I'm not letting the cat out of the bag, Helen gave Rachel her quilt already so it's not a secret any more! It's beautifully quilted and as soft as can be - love this quilt!
Helen also brought in this adorable wall-hanging she made for her youngest granddaughter, Payton. She said she took it off Payton's wall to bring it to show us - just another reason why we love Helen! I'm thinking I should make one of these for Little Elsa...I want to stay in the "Favorite Grandma" category!
Funky colors, artsy style, utter fun...this is Stephanie's newest quilt top...each square has a black center and then is bordered with greens, purples and a mish-mash of fabrics that all work together to make this one creative quilt...this picture doesn't do it justice, it's much better in person!
This is also one of Stephanie's quilts. Our group made the blocks for her a while back - this was supposed to be a charity quilt but the person Stephanie was making it for up and moved! So Stephanie kept the quilt and it's a good thing, too, because now she can give it to her new grandson, due to be born this summer! Don't you just love red and turquoise?!
