A Quilters Delight

This week there was a chance to visit with some favorite people--expatchers quilt group.  Even though not all were in attendance (and we miss those who are absent) we enjoyed our gab and sewing morning.  Always something new and different going on with this group of gals.
Judy was working on this delightful hanging designed by Pam Puyleart.  This is one of many from Pam's backdoor quilt series.
and here is Judy in her new studio--where we all enjoy gathering on those special days.  Thanks Judy!!
Brenda was finishing up her French Braid top.  She and several of the other expatchers took a workshop recently from this book.
What smashing colors!
And a fun quilt top is going to a special little baby soon.
Who is that peeking from behind her finished quilt top?  None other than our group coordinator --Camilla, who found the fabric this summer while attending Long Beach Quilt Festival.  We are happy to have Camilla back after a two year stint in Mexico.  Welcome Home, Camilla!!
Linda is sewing on the binding for her sweet baby quilt. 
A-B-C-D--we can sing right along with the song as we feel the softness of the flannel. 
The diaper pin quilting (by Sandy) adds that special touch.
Last, but not least, is Debby--finishing up the handwork on this lovely quilt that is a gift for a dear foreign exchange student (newly married) she hosted many moons ago.
Yes, we meet to gab, stitch, share, moan and complain; and even though into our lives sadness and trouble flow, we are there for each other.
