Some quilts to share - at last!

I do wish I could say that I was going to share quilts that I made but, alas, that is not the case. No sewing is happening in this house yet. I started PT yesterday and hope to get back to sewing soon. Fingers crossed. 
Anyway, we had our meeting of the Good Enough Quilters last night and there was some sharing of quilts in progress and a finish or two. 

The patch above is the beginning of a table runner that Cindy is making. This is what the finished product will look like. She is well on her way to getting it ready in time for Halloween. Great beginning. 

Laura shared the three blocks she has completed for the BOM that several of us started. I have to say that I think I've done only 2 or 3 of mine from that BOM. It is moving to the top of my list very soon, I hope. I love the colors of Laura's colorway.

Fran just got her quilt back from the quilter and she brought it to share. It is a huge quilt and we love Fran's blocks and the quilting is fabulous. I hope you can see the quilting on the green backing fabric. The quilter put hearts which mimic the hearts in some of the fabric. Don't you love the interesting stripe down the center of the back?

And with some leftover fabric, Fran made this pretty small quilt. We have such a productive group of quilters!

 Cindy brought a quilt from work that we had some discussion of making. Each of the cabins were made by different people. They were given the pattern and went from there. I think that Fran made the cabin in the top right. Wouldn't this be wonderful to snuggle under on a cold winter night?

This was Lynn's applique quilt. She copied this from a collage made by a former student. His was construction paper and she replicated it from great fabric. Isn't it just wonderful? She said she had put it on the same color green that he used. I just love this one.

And a little baby bib. Lynn made 5 or 6 of these for a charity project. Isn't it cute?

Love yoyos? Well, Lynn makes these when she is riding in the car on long trips. I think she has over 1,000. Now she has started putting them together to make a large coverlet. This one has 100 sewn together. Inspired? I know I am.

It sure felt good to be back at our meeting last night and to see such wonderful projects. We might get to work on a special project next month. More on that later.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful, sunny day!

  3. Nancy, I will see if I can get the pattern, or information.
