Sewing With Friends

Yesterday the Frankfort Girls came here for our bi-weekly Friday morning visit. Six of us were in attendance; we missed Becky who could not attend.

It doesn't get very fancy at my house. I did spring for a centerpiece which I plopped on that Easter egg mat I made last year; I added various Easter candies, and placed a special Reese's egg on everyone's plate. I failed to get a picture of the lemon pound cake and the cinnamon coffee cake, but they were fresh from the oven and made the house smell heavenly.

Here are a couple of show and tell pictures. Terry shared her monochromatic barn/farm quilt which she was binding while we visited. It will fit her farmhouse decor perfectly.

Jan had a great quilt to share, too. Last November, she had parts begun for a crayon quilt, which you see below.

At the time I thought this seemed like an awful lot of work for a child's quilt, but it is so typical of Jan who was a primary school teacher all her life. Now, check out the finish.

She was prepared to stitch binding, also. Look at the detail - color names are embroidered on each crayon, the quilting is done with primary-color variegated thread, and the backing (which I don't have photographed) is of crayon fabric. Delightful in every way.

We enjoy one another's company so much that when noon rolled around, five of us met in Greenfield for lunch at Three Spoons. What fun ladies to sew with and wonderful to cherish as friends.

Happy Quilting, Friends!


  1. Sounds like a lovely day with your friends. That crayon quilt was wonderful!
