Another Quilty Night!

It was another great meeting night for the Good Enough Quilters. One thing we noted was how nice it was for everyone to arrive in daylight. Have to love the longer daylight hours. 

Peggy shared a quilt that has been in the making for almost 10 years. She didn't start sewing it but kept planning and drawing until it was as she wanted it. We think the person who will receive it will be very lucky.

Fran is taking a quilt of the month class. Each month they make a small quilt and this was last month's project. We loved the colors and arrangement of the quilt.  I thought it looked very French General but they were from a scrap box! Way to go, Fran.

 Peggy also shared her finished top for our  5 1/2 yard challenge. I wish mine was that close to finished. Hmmm.

This is Laura's very long table runner. She wowed us all with how she used the remaining fabric from a block of the month. It does belong on a very long table in her bedroom and matches the quilt that she made with her blocks of the month.

Dru has her challenge quilt top finished too. We loved the way she put together the center. I had to take a closeup and maybe use it in mine. Perhaps there is a reason why I didn't finish mine!

The picture below shows Laura's challenge finish. I think that leaves only a few of us who have to show ours next month. Guess who is one of them.

No, we are not fighting over the fabric in the picture. Cindy brought a box of fabric scraps that were headed out. We each chose a few different fabrics and will cut 2 1/2 inch squares and will decide next month what kind of quilt we will make. A few of our ideas were Linus quilts, chemo quilts or a donation to a homeless shelter.

I did have something to share, not my sewing, but want to give that its own blog post. I hopefully will get back to share that in a day or two.

Happy Sewing, everyone!

  1. Nice job with the Half-Yard Challenge!!! I love how different they all are! Let me know if I can contribute squares to the next project- I can mail them to Dru.
