..because we had well over 70 Quilters attend Heritage Quilt Guild yesterday! Good thing our hall is big to accommodate everyone! You could tell a lot of the ladies were back from holidays because there seemed to be more visiting than sewing going on! :o)
Vicky B. is BACK! (Vicky has her own blog here!! Check it out!!) Let me show you what she has been up to…besides travelling!
Vicky has completed her first wool project – Gorgeous!! She said it came as a kit and she bought it at the Calgary Quilt Show…it looks a little like a Sue Spargo pattern, doesn’t it?
Look at the colours and her stitches…perfect!!
I predict more wool work in Vicky’s future!! Well done!!
During Sharing Time Vicky also showed us her finished tiger. STUNNING!! Make sure you visit Vicky’s blog to see more of her work!!
Isn’t this blue quilt sweet? The lucky lady who put this quilt together won these block!! At Guild there is a new block every month…if you choose to make it, you pick up the pattern, make the block in the suggested colours and then put the completed block into the box…which earns you an entry to the draw for all the blocks held at the end of the month!! If you are lucky enough to win you will end up with enough blocks to complete a gorgeous quilt…or two!
A quilt in progress…LOVE it!!
Hand quilting in a hoop…lovely work…wish you could see the little stitches!! We have a master here!
I have showed this quilt before…it is a work in progress…
…LOOK at the stitches!! Love it!
Now for the finished works~
This sweet little kitty quilt…
