Tuesday night was quilt night. It is always a treat. It was wall to wall super talented quilters. So fun. I nearly missed it but that is another story.
Here is the fantastic Flora, our fearless leader. She was in our Christmas Cottage swap and look - she has her flimsy done! Isn't it amazing. I absolutely love her border fabric. It is perfect and she sashed with posts. Flora had a surprise planned for me. It was kind of embarrassing but extremely sweet. Thank you Flora. More about that another month. My camera batteries died so I didn't get pictures of that or lots of other other great stuff shown. You'll have to go to Kim's blog. I hope she posts pictures soon. She took a bunch. Hint hint Kim.
This is Janice. Janice is very talented but not just at her quilting skills. She is great with color and ideas and has helped me many times with her unique perspective. Not to mention help with fabric when I'm at Broadbent's. Our group is joining together to make sampler quilts this year and Flora and Paula presented the first blocks. Janice is holding the block representing the red church where the quilt group has met for 20 years. Paula's block was a mountain block. This is going to be fun. I'll show my blocks after they get made. (whenever that is!)
Here is the famous Judy - supporting star player in Nedra's blog. Isn't this quilt flimsy beautiful. I love it Judy! It has such motion and life. I can't wait to see it quilted.
Another wonderful quilt. I love lively quilts. They inspire me. And of course I love the scrappiness.
Sweet hearts. I love the shape of a heart. And who doesn't love red, pink and white?
This valentine applique quilt is so elegant with great technique. Look at all that handwork. The quilting is amazing on it too.
I was glad that I at least had enough battery power saved to take a picture of our 2 lovely guest speakers. Sharon and Nadine did a great job. They had terrific quilts and it was fun to hear their story. Sharon works at a great local quilt shop, American Quilting, so I get to see her now and then. Thanks ladies.
Can you believe we each went home with one these! A very generous member of our quilt group brought one of these lap boards for ALL OF US! There had to be 60+ women there. They were made by her husband. And made very well, too. I felt like I was in Oprah's audience. This is definitely going to be one of my favorite things.
Next month I make sure the battery in my camera is fully charged. I missed some great picture opportunities.
