May Quilt Group at Jan's

Jan was our host for quilt May Quilt Group.  We came early and learned how to make rag rugs.  

We used these needles.
 Some call these "Toothbrush Rugs".

Jan invited her friend Debbie to come and teach us how to make the rugs.
She has been trained (for three days) by the real Aunt Philly. 

 Debbie was so fun and we learned a lot from her.  Thank you Debbie.

She was so good to give us all help.  She is helping Kathee making a turn with her rug.

Maryann and Maryann have a good start.

JoAn is knitting hers.
 Jan gave us instructions for knitting rugs.

Debbie and Cheryl are really studying this project.

Peg and Jeanene  getting started. 

We even have Rachelle on Skype.

Our Guest Debbie starts our "Show and Tell"
She shows us the blocks her group made or her the month she hosted her group.
Great Idea!

JoAn show the fabulous quilt made for a family member.
So striking and the Rick Rack is perfect for a border.

Love the back also.

JaAn also did her own quilting.

Jeanene has completed more Farmer Wife Blocks. Each on is so precise.
Great Work Jeanene! 

Cute Pinwheel quilt ready to quilt.

This quilt was just Half Square Triangles out last month and now ready to quilt.
Simple but so cheerful.

Maryann is showing a pattern used for a charity quilt. 

She brought patterns for a demo.

She made her Cupcake  pattern bigger than original.  

This would make a great quilt for a birthday.  

Maryann's friend Maryann brought a quilt she made 20 years ago.  Hand pieced and quilted.
Don't stop quilting Maryann you have the touch.

Debbie brings a pillow to match the quilt she brought last month. Great idea to bind the pillow for  finished edge.

Vickie shows off a "Crazy Quilt" that was her husband mother's. 

She wanted us to give her ideas for how to preserve it.

Most of the Crazy Quilt is made out of wool.
Look at those nice stitches.

Peg show off her "Belgium Waffle"
The colors are so great

Great quilt Peg!

All I had to show were these blocks I made for a family challenge quilt.
This is my block (Glenna)
It is also the block we will be using Next month for our
Red, White and Blue Quilts.
It is the Louisiana Block and you can find it Here

I made this block from all the Half Square Triangles I had left after make all my blocks for the cousins.
We all had a great time last night and were inspired again.
Thanks Jan!
