“Killer Bees”…another week……..more buzzing……..

Some business and on to sharing. Disclaimer: I forgot my camera so I had to rely on my cell. Photo quality very marginal, but you will get a feel for the creativity, I’m sure!

  First up, a “Mock Mola Applique” technique workshop attended by some of the gals (presented by the Rio Grande Valley Quilt Guild on Jan. 9) resulted in these 2 finishes….

  2. Wow! I love the fallen petals and leaves on the “snippy quilt” with the blue vase.
    And that embroidered quilt is magnificent!
