Good Enough Quilters

It is the day after my birthday and I am happy to say that I am still celebrating. I am one who believes that birthdays should last a month and I'm very lucky because my friends indulge me in that. Last night I went out to dinner and as we were sitting in the restaurant we saw this rainbow out the window. How lucky was I to have a rainbow on my birthday! I do want to thank all of you who sent such nice birthday greetings too. So much fun.

I am finally able to share the pictures from our Good Enough Quilters meeting. The meeting was held four days after my surgery and I wasn't able to go but Fran very helpfully took the pictures for me.

This is the quilt that Cindy made for her son and daughter-in-law.  Aren't the colors great!

Closeup of the quilting. She had it done by one of our favorite longarm quilters. 

This is Debbie's quilt from our block patterns. I think she may have been the first to finish. Makes me feel a little pressure... It does look great. 

Love the colors of Fran's floral quilt. 

Laura's BOM's from Pennington. The block on the right was my reason to start this process. So funky. 

Laura's great-grandmother's sewing chest. We had one like it in our house too. Love them!

Fran's postage stamp quilt. All those tiny little squares...

I'm looking forward to our next meeting. It sounds like there are so many ideas out there for what we will do next! 


  1. A very Happy Birthday to you!
    We always had a birthday week in our house or weekend, depended on when it fell.


  2. Beautiful Quilts. And God really blessed your birthday with the rainbow. Happy Belated Birthday

  3. I love all those quilts but especially the sampler, one day I am going to make a sampler quilt for our bed, maybe not this year, maybe not next year but make one I will...LOL. Hope you made a wish when you saw the rainbow. Hugs xxx

  4. That is a gorgeous quilt! I love the colors.

  5. Happy Birthday, Nancy! Glad you are well on the road to recovery from your surgery.

    Thanks for the post of the GEQ meeting- I have heard about Cindy's quilt, it was nice to see a picture. All of the quilts are BEAUTIFUL!!
