WISQ June 2013

July 17, 2013

       Quilt group was at Adele’s in June;

my favorite night of the month for chatting, laughing and sharing our quilting habits.


Charity quilt from the Nickel quilt patterns.  Love this easy, but fun block.  Looks good scrappy too.

Thanks to Cathy this one is done.



Two more charity quilts for Project Linus from Karen.  Is your stash used up yet, Karen??

More quilts.  Aren’t these beauties?  I believe the bottom one was a stash buster pattern from Glad Creations in Minneapolis.




Goodies from the MN Quilt Show:  a cute fabric bundle and two patterns from This and That.



I always love a surprise when I look at the back of a quilt, and these from Cathy did not disappoint.

Like having two. . . two. . . two quilts in one.

Happy summer,


WISQ March 2013

March 9, 2013

I’m back!  I’ve been overly occupied by my real life job – darn it having to work  – that I’ve neglected my real, real life of quilting.  At first it seemed a little embarrassing to admit I’ve haven’t posted on my blog for over a year.   But on the other hand, it seems just too sad for me to abandon it.  So I’m starting up again where I left off.  Yay!

My BQFs (best quilting friends) and I met for our monthly heart-to-heart talks, laughs, and of course SHOW AND TELL.  A picture’s worth a thousand words, especially in the quilting world.  So here it is.  March 2013 show and tell:

Quilt group was at my house this month.  Some of us started early and had dinner (which was supposed to be on the deck) in my dining room.  It was as hot and humid as the rain forest that night, so outdoors was not an option.

We had great show and tell as always.

Karen’s quilts:

Claudia’s quilt, pieced by her and quilted my me:

Cathy’s stash buster quilt:

Mary’s little quilt:

Shirley’s apron – it’s reversible:

Shirley’s quilts:

Mary Beth’s bow tucks bag:

Rita’s quilts:

Here’s some other fun stuff.  Cindy brought some antique clothing:

I believe this wedding gown is from the 1800s.

Here’s a scarf that Cindy’s knitting.  Isn’t the yarn beautiful?

Mary knit her jewelry.  Really!

Cindy gave me a hostess gift.  It’s just perfect:  black, white, red and polka dots.  It has all my favorites.  Thanks Cindy.

What a great meeting.  We are one bunch of creative women.
