Tuesday’s quilting friends

Standard

TODAYS QUILTING  PROJECT.  These are pics of the front and back of  Barbara R’s small quilt I quilted this morning.  I love the floral edge to edge design.  It looks fantastic on the back and despite my inability to take very good pics, the front is great-quilted with a Sew Fine variegated thread.  It was fun to quilt

THE GREATEST APPLIQUE LADIES I KNOW.  My usual Tuesday morning is spent with a group of quilters, mostly from Sugar Land, Tx.  It was a quiet day today – we just haven’t gotten into the swing since the holidays – too much rain.  Usually there are some absolutely beautiful quilts and blocks to see.  These ladies excel at applique! The pics below show some hard at work.  Val, the lady holding the bunny has gotten into felting.  The bunny is great but don’t you love the felted owl?Vals felted owl Val felting bunny bee 2 bee 1

 

 

 

 

BO’S PLACE – A GREAT PLACE HELPING GRIEF WITH QUILTS.  Last stop for the day was a place called Bo’s Place.  Our quilters guild has been piecing and quilting quilts for them or over 5 years.  Bo’s Place is a non-profit that works to help as many children and their parent(s ) as they can face and handle the grief of loosing a sibling or parent.  No charge to those participants.  Part of their therapy is makin a memorial square for their loved one.  We take the squares and sash and quilt and bind them.  Quilts are hung all over the facility in memory of all of those lost and those that remember.  Because of privacy I could not take great pic of the quilts-a good excuse for blurred images.  The group of ladies standing in front of some of the quilts are the guild members that helped to put the quilts together.  What a fantastic place!Bo's Place Quilts Group pic from Bos Place
