While I expected to have a snowstorm and prepared to move the meeting to the following Monday, we got a dusting of snow, so we had the meeting. Unfortunately, I prepared everyone so well for moving it to next week, that I ended up with three of us at the original meeting. Even so, I'd gotten there around 4:30pm to set up (meetings don't really start until 6:30pm) and decided wince I had the table space set up, I'd use it to machine quilt the 'Purple Mountains Majesties' quilt using gold thread. I have one line I 'oops-ed' on that will have to be ripped out, and some threads to trim, but otherwise, it just needs the rolled binding to be sewn. Could give this one to my mom (she loves to handstitch them-she'll be 86 next month), or sew it on the machine this week. (Hear we have another superstorm coming on Thursday)
This little cutie, Disappearing 9-patch pattern, made by Margaret, (no name yet) is set to be tied. The ladies finished this one at the meeting, using blue embroidery threads. The pink binding is ready to be sewn on (I'll do that this week at home, and mom can finish the binding).
This one was made by Kathy S and we have decided to make it slightly bigger using another border on the outside (found a great stripe-y navy floral one). Hope it works.

Kathy also made this one and while we tossed a few names around ("Bop-it!" , "Bug Explosion"), we haven't come up with a name that everyone seems to say .... "YES! That's it!".
Such a cute one, (Kathy S. again)... Used some fabrics from Marilyn and Margaret...scraps of Kathy's QOV quilts. Woman after my own heart. Never waste a thing!

And Kathy got crazy making 77 Pocket Prayer quilts... I made 9 although I didn't photograph them. Enjoy...
|Love this cat fabric!|
