Expatchers Gathering

It is a 'catch up' gathering! Time to catch up on little gossip while our hands are busy with stitching.
Judy M had this delightful jar quilt to present.  This is one for her church's charity group.

Along with her talents, sponsorships can be added to the quilt to assist with funds.

The backing is just as colorful as the bug jars.

Camilla was doing a quilt of prayers.

After the construction of the quilt top, there is a time for others to help with the tying of the quilts.  As each knot is tied, a prayer is said for the recipient.  This is much like prayer shawls in knitting.

We always like to see Annette's hexes as she lays each group out.  She is following a quilt pattern that she saw at Quilt Festival--trying to come close to the layout, anyway.  Such great sherbet colors--these were from a fat quarter collection she received from the group on her birthday.
