October meeting- FULL crew- 5 quilts Blessed!

 We had a great time at our October meeting.... with the exception of one ( who had car trouble and knew she may not stay the whole time), we had our full crew; Marilyn, Nancy, Jane, Dee, Delaney, Janet, Norma, Kathy.

Kathy had made some quilts for Jane's Project Linus that were adorable
 While I would have named them if they were for our group.... I'll refrain. (Boy, is that a tough thing to do!)
This is so sweet!

 Such detail in the panels.... Nice Job, Kathy!
And some for our group (beautiful!). This one below is a variation of a pattern called Mountains Majesty (Kathy  added 4-patch blocks in to vary it).
"Mountain Journey"
 She even used some of her fancy stitches on her new machine to quilts "mountains' into the borders. So clever!

Mountain Journey Back
The back almost looks Native American. Leave it up to Kathy not to waste any of the scraps!

"Jungle Fever"
This cute kid/teen sized one used a panel that she got from Jane's Project Linus one. Love the use of Amish blocks in it.
 She even used jungle fabrics on the backing.

Then we just got onto ones that we needed to finish. This is a blue monochrome with Delaney's choice of borders.
"Blue Border Mono"
 My Aunt Norma spent her time hand sewing the binding on the lovely green one that Mary Ellen created for us.
 Kathy is pinning the wheelchair sized rail fence that  I (Nancy) donated. The back is one big rail fence piece. Delaney is 'designing' her thoughts in the air, lol.
 Janet even got to be there (yes, we do give our crew 'breaks'!)
 Kathy is finishing the Red/Pink Mono quilt by machine sewing the binding that is folded over from the back.

Janet and Delaney prepping a quilt for the next meeting by cutting a piece of batting for the sandwich stage.
 This little cutie is a panel that we made cream/beige heartstring blocks for it. Not sure on the layout yet, but we worked through it during the meeting. Do we add the blocks all around?

Or down the middle, like a boardwalk? And halfway along the bottom?

Red/Pink Mono is done!

So is Mary Ellen's "Green Lattice HS Fence". Nice Job ladies!!! Thank you all.
