Wild Summer Sewing Safari!

Peg pulled out all the stops for our
Summer Quilt Group
She went
"Wild with Safari"
Because we are...
Wild about Quilting

We started out with a choose your own adventure.
She made these adorable Cheetah Pincushions.
 We added elastic for the back for a wrist pincushion.

We had a great group.
  But we missed some of our favorites. 

Peg even had time to do some of her own sewing.

Hard at work.

Some of her latest projects.
This cute pinwheel was made from the scraps she cut off her Patriotic Quilt.

Great Size!

Tulip Quilt Done!
Done in 30's prints with one of Lori Holt Patterns

Wonderful quilting by her friend

Great find.

Debbie is so proud of these carrot blocks
for her "Red Chair Quilt"
They take forever.....

Debbie did lots of cutting for the same quilt.

Every 20 minutes Peg had a drawing for a prize from the treasure chest.
So Fun
(to the Music of "the Lion Sleeps Tonight")

We were served  Box lunches for lunch.
They were awesome
