Quilt Show

A couple of weeks ago our summer bid ended.
That is when the season changes around here, the driving schedules change
and some of the drivers leave for the season.

Since we were going to lose 3 of our quilters this fall we decided we needed to
have a quilt show and brag about all that we have learned this year.
10 women and 5 months worth of effort.
Once we had all the quilts up we were amazed at what we had accomplished.

The first 3 photos are of my quilts. 
You have seen them already so feel free to scroll by quickly.

We had the show at the Rec Center where
we sew each Sunday.
This was one of Viv's quilts. 
It is her "Jessica" pattern,
The "Jessica" on the left belongs to Jackie
and the "Log Cabin" on the right was done by Margie.
This is a close up of the quilting that was done by our 
Long Arm lady, Sandy.
This was Marie's "Love Knot"
She did a lovely job.
Jackie is the only one of us that had any experience before
we started in April 
This is one of her quilts.
This beauty belongs to Donna. 
She is the wife of a new driver and came to the group late. 
This is a round robin quilt from her group on the 
east coast.
It was completely hand quilted.
Another one by Jackie.
This is a special quilt.
It was made by Gary. 
He decided that he could make a quilt if his wife could. 
It is huge.
Another by Jackie.
One more "Jessica" by Jackie.
This was Viv's first quilt. 
All of her quilts were King size.
Gary's wife, Joann made this. 
It too, is huge.
Viv made 2 "Love Knot" quilts.
One was purple and one blue. 
The blue can be seen on the very first photo.
Judy made this for her grand son.
A beauty by Jackie.
This was Judy's first quilt. 
It is a 70x70 lap quilt.
Gerry made 2 quilts. 
This small wall hanging...
And this lovely flannel beauty. 
She will be warm this winter.
One more by Jackie.
Here we are enjoying ourselves and showing off. 
Gerry and Donna.
Some placemats that Donna was working on.
An overview of the room.
We have had such a good time learning a new skill. 
Having the quilt show was so amazing to us. 
We did not really realize that we had produced quite so much. 


  1. Yowza! Those are awesome quilts, and to think they were all done in just 5 months is just amazing. I wish I had a group like yours.

  2. Thanks for the quilt photos. It was almost as good as being there. What a great idea. It looked like an art gallery.
