Our small quilt group……..

Is a busy group of gals (I’m sure you’ve figured that out!!!) There are a few of us who belong to the Spring Grove group, also, so you may remember the aprons-from-bib overalls workshop that was shown in that post. As you remember also, the gals really didn’t have time to finish their projects, but here’s Carol’s finishes (1 short week later!!!!)…….016 018 019 This gal is always up to something and is multi-faceted….for sure! When most of us carry and show photos of the grands, etc, …..well, not her!! This is what she has to share…….014 Yes, that is a deer head she is holding……her “kill” for this bow season. She had just the antler/rack mounted…..her reasoning is that when the day comes for her move to a long term care facility, there won’t be enough space in her room for a “shoulder mount” but there will be for just the rack!!!!!! I leave it there……………………………

013 If you go to this post you will see the “rest of the story” on this t-shirt quilt.

Lynda has been busy, also. Over the past few weeks, she has accomplished these piecings and just got them back from her long-armer. 021 Lynda is on the left/JoAnn on the right, helping to hold this very large quilt!!!!!022

JoAnn has put together some real cuties, too…………..023 025

024 The fabrics for this top were gotten when some of us took a shop-hop trek. 026This is the first block of her in-process “Disappearing Hour Glass” piecing (pattern may be found on the Missouri Star Quilt Co. YouTube site). 027 Binding finally applied…….done!!!!!

029 We’re all in Autumn-mode, I think!!!! 033 Well, maybe not all ……………034 Isn’t that the cutest?? Another pic…………………………….035 

Joan has been estate sale shopping again and came home with these beauties……………….030

031   Antique/heirloom quilts are her “thing”!!!!!

038   This was put together by Gwen (right) and has the blocks named for women of the Bible. Several of the gals in her church are doing like piecings! Very much like the “Farmer’s Wife” blocks.

036 037

I think that about wraps this one up……til the Christmas gathering in early December! Note: Better get at those quilted exchange surprises……hmmmmmm????

    This group always has beautiful quilts! Very inspiring, talented women! Thanks for sharing.

  2. That quilt featuring women of the bible is most interesting.

      It is. Several of the gals of that church are doing it. One gal put it all together in little kits for each block and labeled them so all the quilt tops produced will be the same fabric choices. The blocks are not actually named for the women but chosen/assigned to a female found in the Bible ( unlike the block named “Jacob’s Ladder” which is an actual historically accurate block name).
