Quilting Fun


While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

Catching Up With the Frankfort Girls

It's been a busy month, and I feel as though I've been relatively productive. At least I've had plenty to blog about. Maybe I've just been "chatty" lately.

Anyhoo, I've neglected to make my bi-weekly report on the Frankfort girls. Four of the 5 of us met at Sharon's on Friday, and we had a guest ~ Sheryll's mother.

Terry had been quite a busy bee in recent days. She had 2 quilt tops for show and tell.

This is a patriotic quilt. I love the fabrics, especially that paisley border.

Pretty, isn't it?

Terry also had this pretty quilt top to share. Again, patriotic. Again, gorgeous fabrics and colors.

Terry worked on the binding of this UFO from several months ago.
 These disks are sewn in rough fashion to the blocks with raw edges exposed. When the quilt is laundered, the raw edges fray softly and give a soft, chenille look.

Sheryll was hand-quilting this primitive log cabin quilt. It is a wall-hanging or table-topper size. Very nice. It will look great in her house, especially at Christmastime.

Sharon, our hostess, is making good progress on her patriotic wall-hanging. Last time we were together, she was just beginning the piecing of this project.

Have you noticed the patriotic theme we seem to have going on here? Totally unplanned!

Here is my project ~  yo-yos being stitched into a table topper.



I really did not have any particular project in mind when I began making these yo-yos, about 6 or more years ago whenever I was traveling. It's an easy way to fill time on planes and buses, or while sitting in airports.

No time for chattiness today!! This concludes the updates of the Frankfort quilt group.

I specially love your yo-yo's. They will be a great table runner.

I know these ladies always exhibit at the county fair...are you going to enter any of your quilts?

Jayne said...

No Pam, I am not entering the fair. I am however, helping Terry at the fine arts building when entries are coming in. I love looking at these items, so it seemed logical that I'd help her out when she asked. Thanks for commenting! It was good to see you yesterday!
