March Quilt Group 2009

Rachelle finished her "Cabbage Rose" Block of the Month quilt from last year.
She also did the fabulous quilting.
She showed us a quilt she made for a lady that came to her garage sale. She didn't know her but when they started talking about quilts they became friends. The lady had the fabric for a baby quilt for a grand baby. Rachelle pieced and quilted it for her. The lady said to leave the binding so she could say she made some of it.
Rachelle your awesome!!!

Glenna made this bag from one of Penny's patterns, "Weekender"
Made from two "Poetry Collection" charm packs.
Ruth displayed a quilt her 9 year old granddaughter made with the help of her Grandmother. Ruth said she sat by her while she sewed every stitch.
What a great Grandma.

Ruth also brought some of the samples from the machine quilting class she took. We were all blown away by her machine quilting.

Vickie showed this cute quilt top she finished. She said the fabrics were out of date and we all disagreed with her, we all loved it. We even thought it would be a great wall hanging.

Hedy said she didn't bring anything to show but she brought this bag she made.
Penny's "Bring your Own Bag" pattern,
Peg brought two bags she made from charm squares.

Vickie's niece just came into town and first stop was our quilt group.
She brought two quilts to show. I can't remember what she called this but it was striking.

The "Highlight" of the evening was this amazing quilt.
Made by Vickie's niece Lorianne?
The picture does not do it justice.
It was unbelievable.

Great meeting * great visit * great food * great friends!
(we missed those who couldn't come)
