Alpine Quilt Group August 2009 Part I

I've been avoiding looking at the calendar lately hoping that the days will stop ticking by for the summer and that I'll stall the upcoming wedding. Well. It doesn't work. Last night I was sewing away on my diamonds and my phone rang. It was my friend Laura wondering where I was. I was completely baffled. She was sitting at the Alpine Quilt group waiting for me. WHAAAT? How did I miss that it was the last Tuesday of the month! I had figured that next Tuesday was the 31st. WRONG. I jumped up and ran to quilt group.
I didn't have my game on. I had been messing with camera settings. And because I was late I not only missed some of show-n-tell but my pics started out being bad, very bad.

I think this quilt had appliqued blocks in the middle of the little squares. Laura had to point that out to me because I was fiddling with my camera.
The wonderful and fabulous Rae Anne showing her quilt.
A sweet baby quilt. I think this is Bonnie's. Tricia (left in yellow jacket) is my wonderful friend holding up the quilt on the left. I love the colors in this quilt. It reminds me of ribbon candy or something.
Jodi with 1 of her quilts. The other pic didn't turn out.
I really love the fruit and the 9 patches in this quilt. It is beautiful.
Love this quilt. Love the colors and the sweet down home feel.
This flimsy is from the Girl Group. They have such fun.
This is Kim's quilt with Texture Magic.
The fabulous Flora and her quilt with "old" fabric. Love it.
I think this is Paula's quilt? I talk too much I guess. I miss the commentary.
Flora's quilt. So striking. Good job Flora.

Stay tuned Monday for quilts from Mary of Mary's Cottage Quilts. Mary has a blog too, and lives north of me several cities and was sweet enough to come to Alpine and bring her quilts last night and tell her story. I've met Mary before and she is cute and inspiring. I felt so glad I didn't miss her trunk show. More on this Monday's post. Hopefully by then I'll get my pictures more organized.

Absolutely beautiful quilts to share. Do you know what pattern was used for the quilt you referred to as ribbon candy? I really like that one....and lots more, too!!! Thanks for sharing!

Unknown said...

Heavens, how could you miss your group?? Don't worry though, I have done the same thing too. But you got there just in time to get some really great photos of some really great quilts.

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, I always love your show and tell. I love that first quilt too -- it looks a lot like my friendship quilt. And good for you that you've gone to a more relaxed schedule for posting -- I did that a long time ago -- it's the only way to still get anything done! ;-)

Jan said...

LOL on almost being a "no show!" That one really made me chuckle. Everyone's quilts are gorgeous! Such wonderful inspiration. Tks so much for sharing :)

Candace said...

Beautiful quilts! I can't believe you almost missed your quilt group..I hate to admit it..but I've done it before too!!

Val said...

Wow. I really enjoyed this show. It doesn't look like you missed a lot. I could not imagine there being more. I look forward to Monday to see more pictures. I need to catch up on your blog. I have been so busy I haven't been reading or leaving comments like I should.
