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...

Frankfort Girls Update

We met on Friday at Sheryll's house for a morning of chit-chat, coffee, muffins and stitching. Sheryll's mom, Loretta, joined us. We had a wonderful time, as always, even though we were missing JoAnn, who was traveling again, this time in Wisconsin!

Quite a bit to show and tell, so let's go!


Terry has finished the top on her River Blues quilt! She said it was a doozy to stitch, but gosh, it looks fantastic, doesn't it? I think I want to make one. Yeah, I really do. I will have to hitch up my resolve and just do it.


The guild that all these girls belong to is having its annual quilt show over the Labor Day weekend, so Sheryll is getting quilts ready to enter. This is one of them. It is called High Cotton, a Kim Diehl pattern. Don'tcha' love it?


Another of Sheryll's gorgeous creations going into the quilt show. We saw this one in progress a few months back. You can read about it here. It's called Cocoa Baskets and was featured in McCall's Quilting in Sept.-Oct. 2010.


This is also by Sheryll; it's a pattern by Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles called Civil War Journal, and was a BOM from a quilt shop in Portsmouth a few years ago.


While Sheryll's mother is visiting, she is sewing in an attempt to get a quilt made for every grandchild and great-grandchild. They are all getting these Log Cabin quilts. This one is beige and blue.


Purple! Loretta said it was not easy finding 7 different purples that worked well together. This turned out great, though.


Here's Loretta's with her current WIP - this Trip Around the World. It is made in sections, so here are 2 of the 4 sections. I love the colors! She says she is using up her scraps, but this seems awfully well organized to be that random!! It will be gorgeous when finished, won't it?

That's it for today!
 Happy Quilting, Friends!
