A quilters journey

Temporary quilting quarters

The remodel is a slow thing. I am down to the studs.  I have some framing to do and then I can start putting up the sheet rock.

For now, I have moved into the trailer in the driveway.   I have set up quilt camp in our 1963 camp trailer.  It is a tight fit, but it will do.

here are some pics for you to see.

another in house quilt retreat.

I have been quiltting all week again with my quilt group.  I decided to finish one of my quilt tops. I made this three or four years ago.

I have had fun with this one. I have been able to practice quilting on my home machine.

This quilt is made from two inch squares that were donated to our quilt group.  I took about half of these squares and put them into the 12 patches.  The rest of the quilt just kinda came together in my head. I am giving this quilt away to our pregnancy care center. they came and asked our group if we would make lap quilts for the young mothers who are electing to give their baby's up for adoption. Once they give birth, they are given a comfort quilt to take home with them.  This quilt is machine pieced and machine quilted.

quilt of valor using Andover's Hurrah line

I have been wanting to make a quilt of valor for some time now. I have finally found the perfect fabrics for this project. Thanks Andover.

This is only a picture of my design  from my EQ program, not the actual quilt.

Quilt retreat- in house

Hi ladies and Gents:

Wow!!! What an exciting two weeks. The first week was our shop hop. I bought lots of stuff. The second week has been our in house quilt retreat at our church. That is where we can take all our stuff and just leave it all week in our class room and come and sew, come and go as we please from 9:00A.M. to 9:00P.M Monday through Friday. A fun time was had by all. Here are the projects that we worked on enjoy.

These two pic are of the class room. Yes we know how to spread out and make a mess

as a group we exchanged Christmas fabrics in 21/2 " strips for 6 months. the object was to make the strip quilts.

one of us found an awesome pattern of the shop hop and this is what she is doing with her strips.

 following are some of the quilts for the Care Center

I bought a package of scraps and a panel on the shop hop and decided to play with the fabric. this is what I have so far

one of our ladies made this quilt for the custodian at the church that sets up our room for us each Tuesday

This a a quilt made by one of our newer members.  its her first major accomplishment. Isn't she going to be a great quilter.

One of our ladies moved to Alaska a few years back and it just so happened that she was in town for a while.

 So brought my extra sewing machine and she quilted with us for the week here is what she worked on.
