Quilt Club March Meeting

My friendship quilting group met this month at my home. I really enjoy being a hostess. We had a great time.

First we had show and tell...

This quilt was made by Lorelei. It is for the Tara Guild's Monthly Mini. Each month a member commits to make a mini quilt that other members buy tickets for a chance to win the quilt.

This is a quilt top made by Carolyn. I really like two-color quilts.

After show and tell we ate a light breakfast of muffins, pineapple, juice, and coffee. The girls really loved the coffee. (It was Publix Special Roast that I got for a penny a few weeks back!)

Here are three of the ladies in the club. We are hoping to add to our numbers! The more the merrier!

From left to right: Lorelei, Carolyn, and Nancy.

Now it was time to get to work on our projects...

Below is my sweet Mom working on her project.

She wouldn't be happy if she knew I posted her picture...It will be our little secret!

Here are the ladies working away....

Carolyn worked on her Easter quilt. She is very creative and it the type of person who doesn't need or want to work from a pattern. That is a real gift.

Loreli worked on some quilt blocks for a block exchange. The name of the block is Contrary Wife. The only requirement was that the blocks have orange in them. I think I would like to make a whole quilt with this block.

The girls insisted that I be in my blog this time. I would rather just take their picture. Here I am holding a lap quilt I am working on now. This a pattern by Atkinson Designs. It is called Cheese and Crackers. This is a UFO that has been sitting around my sewing room for a couple of years. I love brights!

Nancy worked on her Lightning Strikes bargello quilt. I started one of these at the same time as she did. I haven't touched it since Day 1. Maybe I can get motivated now that I see her's coming together. Our monthly meetings really help to keep us on track. This will be a beautiful quilt! Don't you just love her color choices!

Here is the project my Mom, Margaret, worked on. She finished the quilt top in one day! She accomplishes more at 84 (almost 85) years old than most of us half her age. What a blessing!
This wall hanging was a kit made by The Longaberger Company. Mom loves blue and white and would like to make a larger blue and white quilt--maybe with some floras.

Can't wait until next month!
