Last Monday evening, we had a great, lively time! Again, rain and cold prevailed outdoors but “quilting” was the topic and the chattering indoors was non-stop. This is the smaller, local group I belong to. These are a couple of the cutest baby quilts!!! This gal is a vendor at a lot of the craft events in our area. She is multi talented (quilting, painting, card making, quilted purses, snowmen, etc etc etc!!!!) and, I firmly believe, she does not sleep!!!! Either that, or she somehow sews while sleeping!!!!??!!! And, yes, I also believe her hands move as fast as the photo below shows……all the time!!!!! That is a stack of wallhangings and table runners, of various sizes, on her lap(above)…..completed in the recent past weeks. Some of her hangings……………….. She almost sells out of these as fast as she makes them. Part of the success of her business is she knows her customers!!!!!
Note the cute block with the little teddy/pocket!!! Margaret designed this block, which will join several other such teddy/star blocks, alternating with a cute multi-colored dot fabric block for a baby quilt. She is the only gal I’ve ever known who refers to her stash as her “purgatory”!
This jelly-roll variation is a pattern found in the new (premiere issue, I believe) Missouri Star Quilt publication “Block” and is called “Jelly Roll Race 2”. Done in batiks with black accent blocks and a soon-to-be-added black border, this is one stunning quilt top!!!
The quilt above is made up of one block that is either vertical or horizontal and has 2 colored blocks within it. Looks far more complex than it is and has a confetti feel. I’m hoping this gal will be doing the quilting herself!
That’s it for this little group sharing. Til next time……….
