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 Quilters at JoAnn's

Today we met at JoAnn's for our regular bi-weekly get-together. Let's see what we've been up to, shall we?


Hostess JoAnn was binding this wall-hanging.


I believe I've shown JoAnn's progress on this wall hanging in previous posts. It is modified from a larger pattern that included both pieced blocks and appliqued blocks.


It may look like Sheryll is playing in the buttons, but in fact she is selecting buttons to adorn some kitchen towels she is making to give as Christmas gifts. These towels are really pretty.


I enlarged it quite a bit, so there is some distortion, but these are really pretty, and quite appealing. I imagine the recipients will be quite pleased!


Terry was also binding. She had recently finished quilting this Ohio State quilt.


It's extra-long, can you tell? I sure do like it!

Sharon had finished another stocking, and brought all 3 to show us.


Isn't this wonderful? Such detailed work! Charlie's stocking is now ready, and joins his two cousins' stoockings.


After showing us her finished stockings, Sharon got busy on some handwork. This looks like fun!


I've been doing a lot of hand piecing lately, and this looks like some of my stuff. It is Sharon's, however; she is making a fall-ish wall hanging.


I will show you what I was working on in tomorrow's post.

My thanks for November 27:
I am thankful for being retired and having the freedom to participate in such fun activities as my quilting group.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

You're a busy lot aren't you? I bet you manage to do quite a bit of chatting too though.

My Mum retired just this past July (she and I are also Middle School English teachers!) so your thankfulness rang true to me. I know she's really enjoying her freedom! She's really enjoying time with her grandchildren too.
