Fun Projects

On Monday, when I was at Terry's for a day of quilting, I took pictures of some of the thing the others were working on. (you saw my project in the previous post). 

Hostess Terry has undertaken a project requiring many, many half-square triangles. She had her machine humming away on some Thangles.


The picture of her project is there in the bottom corner of my pic. It's called Mollie Gray, a pattern by Country Threads. She and Monica went to the Iowa store several weeks ago for a camp and Terry came home with a big load of patterns and kits. This is one of them!

Here is a quilt top that Terry finished and showed us - it too is a Country Threads pattern, this one called Line Dancing.


Gorgeous! The scrappy look really appeals to me!

On to the aforementioned Monica. She was stitching away on yet another Country Threads pattern called Hot Buttered Rum. This pattern calls for a stitch-as-you-go approach. Here are a few of Monica's blocks.




The warm fall colors Monica us using in this quilt just invite snuggling. I hope I get to take a picture of it when she finishes it!

Here is a recently finished project that Monica had to share with us.


Across the table from Monica, Cherie was busy on a Jelly Roll Race quilt - but she wasn't using a proper Jelly Roll; instead, she was using a wide - very wide - variety of 2.5-inch strips from her stash to make this extra-long quilt for a family member.


Reminds me of the Coat of Many Colors from the Bible. What a variety! When she finished the borders on this quilt, Cherie got to work on her next project - Mary's 4-Patch, yes, also by Country Threads.


So, we were very productive on this windy, rainy gray day - awaiting the effects of Hurricane Sandy.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
