Ex-Patchers!

We hadn't been together for quite some time--
This day is our day; I'm ready to share with my dear friends--
sadness, happiness, joys, grandkid happenings,
and not the least of all--our quilts!

Annette had made this 4 patch disappearing quilt top for a friend.
What fun--great way to use up all those scraps from the stash.
She started with 5.5" squares to make the four patch and
then cut, twist and sew!

Judy M, our hostess, shared her latest creation--$29 quilt kit!
WOW!  what a popper in the camera lenses--but to the naked eye
the fabrics don't look like they work together.

We thought the main fabric was quite busy--but in this
case, it all works together.  For this accent, Judy used
raw edge applique--and it works!

And the quilt design is just perfect for the busy front.

On the quilt frame--I'd call this "Juicy" fruit or "Starburst"
such lively, powerful colors on the gradient bases.

Linda used Pat Sloan's 2015 mystery quilt pattern (Josh' quilt top pattern)
to make this lovely Christmas quilt.

Backing is super great!  

Quilting by Sandy!

Brenda was hand stitching the binding from her latest quilt festival
workshop--love this star!

and here is the quilting pattern--super great looking!

Judy M wanted to use her orphan blocks to make a manly lap robe.
We played with the pieces--this is so much fun--itching to
bet to my 'orphans' to do the same!
A super great day for me--lots of laughter, a few tears, hugs, making
it the highlight of my day when we can gather.
