Small Group

My small group met last week and it is always fun to see what each other is doing.  And they have been doing!

Donna found a seasonal panel in the right colors for her home, and she is hoping it will last all winter and not look too Christmasy.

School teacher, Sherry, only gets to come a few times a year.  She found this pattern that uses jelly rolls.  It will be gift to a family who bailed her out when she could not get a motel room.  I really like the suble change in the beige hour glasses.

More subtle hour glasses appear in Joyce’s Sylvia wedding sampler. They along with the dark frames really draw your attention to the hard work done on the blocks.   Joyce was trying to arrange the blocks and could there be a wrong way?  We all have an opinion on that.

Sharon will soon have all her family together and she has four granddaughters.  She is anxious to get a picture of them in their new aprons.  Aren’t they so cute?  And I am sure the girls are too!

A while back we practiced the strip-tubing technique.  Joyce found this table runner pattern on the internet.  What a great way to try out the technique.  The more I try to figure out the pattern, the more I think it is not a tube.  The strips are sewn together and cut into triangles.  After you cut the red triangles, wouldn’t there be another set?  The white would be the long strip on the triangle.  I think I want to read the pattern.

Joyce has really been busy.  A new grandson is on the way and she has made his bedding.  It includes the Iowa Hawkeye logo on one of the prints.  She put it together with such class. A picture did not get taken.  I so want you to see it that I will ask her to take pictures.

The gals had gone on a road trip while I taught Bible School in June.  We had two challenge blocks to show one another.  I forgot to take a picture of all of them.  It is so fun to see what each is doing with the same fabrics.

I do have one more picture from France.  Travel partner, VA, found this treasure in an antique store.  It is a crib sized quilt.  The French are known for their hand quilting.  Not for their piecing.  It is a special treasure to remember the Deb Robert’s Textile Tour to France.
