I have been remiss...

Our quilt group met on Tuesday night and it has taken me until now to actually post the pictures from our meeting. And it was a good one since everyone had something to share!

Above and below is Cindy's baby quilt. She was very proud of her quilting. It looked really great.

Now check out the baby bag that Debbie made. Great fabric and lots of pockets.

And even better are the darling crocheted animals that go inside. Aren't they too cute!

Peggy brought a puzzle. If you look closely you can see that the blue is not straight like the other  pieces. It was very frustrating for her but we all agreed that if it was consistent, it was fine. We even suggested different names, like broken steps.

Lynn had the chance to finish someone else's blocks and put them in a quilt shawl. Isn't it so very pretty? Sure to please the person who receives it.

 Have you tried Kansachi flowers yet? Lynn has become a real fan of them and has used them on various items. This is simply one sample.

Dru took this off her sideboard to share with us. Can you see the wine fabrics she had collected?

This is also Dru's baby quilt. Look at the print fabric which is close to the Harry Potter theme for the baby's room. Wouldn't you love to see that?

 I had to give you two views of Laura's quilt. It is a garden theme with an interesting layout. I love the way the center blocks have more flowers as it progresses. I bet the finished quilt will be lovely.

 Fran shared the beginning of her latest quilt. What a nice quilter she is. She lets people pick their own pattern. That can be dangerous!

And this fun quilt from Fran was made with some Valentine charm squares that she had around. We all think she should make a quilt for each holiday. What do you think?

And very proudly, I finally had some sewing to share. This is my baby quilt being held up straight. Today it went to the long arm quilter. I will probably be waiting 2 months or so but decided this one deserved to be machine quilted by a professional and that is not me!

I hope everyone has a good weekend. Our weather has been absolutely perfect. Open windows are the best part of summer!


  1. So envious of everyone's projects- still haven't sat down at the sewing machine. Thanks for the updates, Nancy!

  2. Not sure how I missed this post, but so glad I was "surfing" this morning. These are some beautiful quilts!! I especially love your's and Laura's. Did you use a pattern, or is this a design you created?
