It’s “That” Monday…again………..

When my larger quilt group meets and shares inspiration. I did a workshop in the morning on fmq (free motion quilting) that had the gals workin’ up a froth, uh, sweat, uh…….we had a great time!!! Couldn’t repeat enough times: “practice….practice…..practice” and “don’t forget to breathe!”. But…….no photos!!!! Sorry!!!

Anyhow, here is the photo recap of the share time………….photo 1 (5)photo 2 (4)photo 1   The gal in the photo, above right, received the embroidered piece as a gift. She is a Master Gardener and the caption below the tree says “Hoe, hoe, hoe”.

The above piece is a beautiful reverse applique (done by a local Hmong?) that was gotten at the Goodwill for a little more than $3.50!!!!!! Impeccable workmanship!!!!!!

photo 1 (3)   photo 2 (2) “Lottery blocks” for this time around. We are to make one of each and for each block made we get a “chance” to have our name drawn for all the blocks made. Then, the ‘winner’ decides the next block pattern.

photo 2 (3)        An exquisite appliqued quilt with heavily stippled background to make the motifs “pop”. Way to go, Faye!!   photo 5 (3)  photo 1 (4) A quilted little hanging with a beautifully hooked rug to match!!!!!! Some people are such “over-achievers”!!!!! And another hooked rug by Faye……photo 4 (4)

Some thread painting…………………….photo 3photo 4 done by Judy who took a class.

photo 4 (1)  Clever use of border prints……”slice and dice” style!!!!!

I guess that about wraps it up for another great meeting and sharing time. Til next time…….keep on sewing…………..

    Is there no end to the talents of your group. Such a beautiful collection. However my favourite has to be the Bargello in such gorgeous shades, they give a real hint of the autumn to come. I am sure the quilter who made that one is proud of it and rightly so.
    I always enjoy seeing your group photographs, they give me lots of ideas.

    • treadlemusic says:

      The ideas are there for me, also. The Bargello quilt was one that the gal said she would not do again. Purchased as a kit (I believe) and done in a “stitch and flip” technique that she didn’t elaborate on.
      Have a lovely day/eve!!!!!! Hugs…………….

  4. I’m with Beth Ann. I love show and tell. What incredible talent.

    I really look forward to these posts, it’s so much fun seeing what these artists have to show! What a blessing that Lavora is able to gift her great-grandbabies with a quilt, hand made by her!

  6. Michele says:

    Lots of great things created by that group and I would have snatched up that Hmong piece in an instant.

      I’m so glad you had good thoughts about the workshop. It was a tough one! I think everyone worked so hard and made awesome progress…..even if it was only to appreciate fmq on a different level!!!!! Hugs…………….
