A productive evening

We had a meeting of our Good Enough Quilters tonight and they were anything but just good enough tonight. It was an amazing time as everyone worked hard to make pillows to be sold at the Pearl S. Buck Gift Shop. We had fabric and pillow forms that were donated and with their sewing machines whirring, these ladies made magic. Cindy's sweater pictured below shows just how hard everyone was working.

I do have a few other things to share tonight so I'm going to take some time to photograph the finished pillows so you can appreciate them fully.

Drew showed us her sampler quilt that she finished. This was the one where each of us brought a block pattern  each month. Hers turned out great and we all loved the border she put on. I didn't finish mine yet but it sure gives me some ideas.

Don't you love the way she put on the label. It is just enough set right there in the corner. Another idea.

I didn't have one to share tonight but I did have a finish. Here is the birthday quilt which I finished on Sunday night and delivered on Monday. I am really pleased at the way it turned out. And happy that I had the whole thing finished in time to give it as a gift.

 Here is a closeup of the backing. While the front was fruits and vegetables, the back was baking supplies. Dan loves riding so the bikes went around the quilt in the binding.

Now, remember, tomorrow I'll be back with pictures of the pillows. I have to find the best way to display so you can see them and appreciate them. I think they exceeded all our expectations!


  1. Liking the label idea, I am never sure where to put mine ... that would be really easy, thanks for sharing. Linda

  2. Dan's quilt looks great! I like the black against the bright colors.

  3. I love the "foody" quilt. It looks terrific as does that label.
