What a fun day! Three of my quilt friends came over today to sew. We try to meet every month to work on UFO's, but we also love to visit and catch up, do some show and tell, and of course, EAT! I made a big chicken salad and the other girls brought melons and peach crisp. YUM
This is the project I worked on today. These fun panels are Christmas Flamingo’s. I am putting together a top as a show sample and today I was working on figuring out connectors between all the blocks. I framed them all with black and prints, then a second white frame. They are still on my quilt wall so I will try and finish this tomorrow. It is sort of a challenge since I am making it up as I go along! I’ll post a “finished” picture when I am done.
The other fun thing we did today was go to the Ottawa Piece Maker’s Quilt Show! (Ottawa, KS not Canada). I had 8 quilts in the show, but there were lots of gorgeous quilts there. Here are pictures of the quilts I had in the show.
What a great day. . .Good friends, good food, good fun, and a great quilt show. Ahhhhh, what more could a girl want?
Ok. . . .Tomorrow I will post the next block in the Midnight Posies BOM. There’s something to look forward to!
The drop shadows for the Flamingo blocks really make that quilt!ReplyDelete
It was also fun to see your entries in the quilt show...a really nice mix of styles and techniques!
It's always fun to try something new!
