So, I brought the quilt to the group

and after some discussion I’m going to quilt it in black. Right now I’m using John Flynn’s “So Fine” by Superior Threads. Once I get the outlining done on the star parts and the circles I’ll switch to Libby Lehman’s Bottom Line for a little bit of sheen.

A few of the gals brought quilts for show & tell.  We saw Mary Anne‘s “Grandma’s Hexagarden” in person – the picture on her blog does not do this quilt justice.  

Renee has been traveling and her sewing machine is lonely as a result.  I feel for them both, the symptoms of withdrawal must be difficult to deal with.  She is looking forward to a bit of fabric shopping this week as a consolation.

Sandra showed us three art pieces she’s worked on or completed recently.  They’re amazing.  We’re encouraging her to enter them into a local juried show.  I just checked their website this morning and there are several art quilt categories!  Who knew?  I’m going to try to enter my star into the show – I need to get a current photo though.  So a trip to the camera shop is in order.

Once the camera & the computer are talking again I’ll post progress pictures.

I’ll post about Sunday’s group tomorrow I’m off for a day of teaching, guild and teaching

  1. Teri – As usual, you are busy, busy, busy. Sounds like lots of fun, too. I wish I could have seen the Grandma’s Hexagarden in person. I really liked that quilt. Can’t wait to see your star quilt done. Enjoy. Carolyn in Kerrville, TX
