Quilters are such a warm, friendly, giving group! We range in age from 40 something to 80 something and we all get along on the same level. Isn't that great?
I can't keep up with some of them!
One of my favourite quilts was this one by Yvonne for her granddaughter. All from scraps.
The Dalhousie girls, Laurie and Kristine were creating twister quilts with an appliqués monkey. Boy and girl version.
I also really like this black, grey and white quilt.
I believe she'd added another row by the time we left.
I'm still working on this quilt. I have two blocks left and then wil start adding all the white sashing strips that go between the blocks.
The I Pad color is not the best on this one. I finished a baby x's and O's quilt top too.
The pinks are coming through a bit more red than they actually are. It's softer and pinker in real life.
For a little break, I cut up a piece of sun printed fabric and put together a quick mug rug. Some of the women commented that they wouldn't want to use it as a mug rug. One particular lady said that she would hang it on her wall and drink her coffee while looking at it. I finished it up and gave it to her. It touched me that she got tears eyed.
I used a variagated silk thread to free motion around the fern.
One of the quilters, Kristine , who is very creative, was showing this quilt that she devised by expanding a runner pattern and joining them together. She has another strip to add.
Pretty interesting quilt.
Well, I'm getting sleepy. I'm going to knit a bit before 'm off to bed.
