Almost everyone stopped in to drop off their boxes with the round robin blocks. Most of us had a lot of fun with these last month. There were some that stressed out about them too. Just remember these are going to be sampler quilts, so I don't think you can go wrong with any block you make. To make it work with the other blocks, just use that constant. I am so excited to watch as these progress.
Only three of us stayed to actually sew. Linda, Rhonda and I worked on Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt On Ringo Lake. We finished our first clue.
We did show and tell when most of us were here. Sue was working on a sock monkey quilt. How cute is this? She explained how it was put together in strip sets. Now she is doing sampler quilting on it. You can see some of the quilting she has already finished. Great project!
Even though there were only three of us, we still managed to have a nice lunch. Turkey chili, broccoli salad and brownies.
This was our last meeting for the year. Merry Christmas everyone and we'll see each other next year. Maybe there will be an early January shop hop-date to be determined.
Virtual quilt show. Linda sent me photos of Brooke's quilt.
In Linda's own words: Broke was adopted as a newborn. . I work with Marianne who is in the picture. Marianne’s son and wife live in Va. her son brought her the baby clothes and no idea about the quilt. They all got together at thanksgiving in VA and celebrated Xmas. Her two sons from Fla were up and her daughter/husband from Pittsburgh were there
When Brooke opened the quilt she loved it from the colors that I used. Purple is her fav. Everyone else was amazed and started picking out the onsies they had bought her. I never felt so good about the feedback on a quilt. She was excited to tell me about their reactions. Her son pointed out the butterfly pattern that Rhonda did. Brooke who is now 3. Dragged the quilt with her to the bathroom for her bath. Would not let it out of her sight!
Our schedule for next year.
