June 2013

We made a lot of progress on our Special Olympics quilt today.  We even created a mystery block!  Rhonda, Peggy, Cathy, Linda and I sewed (and ripped) to get the top finished.  Now for the borders.  We are using the bonus triangles for part of the border.

 And now for show and tell!  Here is Peggy's Easy Street-ready to be quilted.
 Cathy's baby quilt made with tumblers.

Cathy's Strip Twist-she made two extra long twins-love the movement in this.

Deb's Patriotic quilt for her nephew-just wow!
 Peggy's Jared Takes a Wife quilt-another one of hers ready for the quilting frame.

These are my patriotic table runners.  I made five of them.  (Thanks for holding them for the pictures Cathy!)

 Peggy has been very busy this month.  Here is her Magic Square quilt made with directions from Missouri Star Quilt Company.

A pretty baby quilt Peggy made with her scraps.

Another Bonnie Hunter quilt that Peggy made.  I love Bricks and Stepping stones in this colorway.
 Rhonda made this cute little bag this month.  She used the vinyl iron on to make the interior fabric so it is waterproof.  How cute is this?

This is Peggy's bag that she made a while ago.  I think it is so cute and I know I didn't have a picture of it from before.

This t-shirt quilt Rhonda made for her niece is just beautiful!  We can't wait to hear what her reaction is when her niece gets it.

The back is just as cool as the front.

We are getting together again 7/20/13 to work on the charity quilt for July and 8/3/13 to make sure we get it finished in time.  If we can get pictures of all the Special Olympic's quilts we have made, I would like to make a special blog posting just for them.  Then we can add to it each year.

Have a wonderful Independence Day!

June 2013

It was so nice to get together again.  So sorry that you couldn't make it Peggy and Sheree.  We had an interesting time!

Up first is our show and tell.  This is a quilt that I made for a little boy who has Congenital Heart Disease-TAPVR -Pulmonary Vein Stenosis.  Here is Houston's Facebook page if you are interested in reading about him.

 This is my Spanish Jewels quilt that took me about a year to make.
 This is Rhonda's Jelly Roll quilt all quilted.  She is going to make a scalloped border on this.  I can't wait to see that!

Rhonda finished her snowman quilt.  I think when they are all done I will have a blog with all the snowmen quilts.
 Rhonda's tumbler quilt is finished.  This is the one that inspired me to finish mine.  I wasn't liking mine until I saw this one.  I am going to put all of these together on a separate blog too when we have finished all of ours.
 This beautiful t-shirt quilt is for Rhonda's niece's graduation.  Rhonda is a pro at these.

Linda, out quilter who hated applique, appliqued these cute towels as gifts!

Linda's Lone Star cross that she is going to make a pillow out of.  Beautiful!

And Linda has gotten on to the dress making craze for her granddaughter!  This is her pillowcase dress.  So cute.
 Linda's blue and brown quilt finished with her four patch label!

Look at those faces!  This is pretty much how we looked all day long.  Our charity quilt was a little bit more complicated than we thought it would be.  We only have about two rows made.  Sue took a row home to sew together.  We have to lay it out before we can sew it together to make sure the blocks coloring lines up correctly.

 I think when it is all together it should be pretty cute.  It looks pretty chaotic now!
Next quilt club will be June 29.  I hope everyone will be able to make it then!

Sauder's is having their sale the previous weekend.  I would love to go.  Maybe some of us can get together and make a road trip.
