Longest Event Ever!

Okay, maybe it's because I just got back to work, then just took a vacation, THEN planned this event, but it was the longest 6 hours ever! (Actually, I think we left early). BUT. We did get a lot done....

Kathy brought in a few finished baby quilts. This first one, I think is named "Go Fish!", very bright and perky.
 This next one she did, has snowball blocks in it, but they are all beach scenes, so I named it" Snowballs at the Beach"... There is a closeup of it too.

 I had forgotten she'd taken all the red, white and blue fabrics home to use them up. She made two Quilt of Valor quilt tops to send to Alycia Carmins in CO (also made a pillowcase for each one). I'll send them off this coming week. This one looks like "American Leftover Diamonds"-- very sparkley.
 This one I'll call "Mountain Waves" .

 This one was set up, but we didn't have enough time to work on it. We did decide it needs the deep blue 2" border around the outside and them the purple print (bottom right) for the outer border.
 Nice to see Janet G back !!! AND in remission! (The jar quilt is in the back)
 Mom loves to hand sew the bindings on, so she did that while Lynn and Nancy talked "business' for a while.
 These quilts are all set with batting, but just needed the backings widened. These will be tied at the next meeting.

 This quilt needs the backing widened (which we did) so it's ready to go for the next stage. The pink is for the binding, I think.
 Removing pins is important.

Oh, and if you're wondering about the Jar quilt.... We did get the edges of the rows widened, but haven't made them all even yet. I have that one at home for the summer. Hope to work on it once my air conditioner is installed...(Honey?)...Off for the summer.... see you in Sept!
