Five Bags Full...

We had our June woolie meeting, where the Five Bags Full got together for some Woolie hi-jinx and as usual, the Bags didn't disappoint!  They have all been busy! 

I thought I would share our Show and Tell....Claire hand quilted her Cheri Payne 'Snowmen Quilt'!  This quilt just gets cuter and cuter!  Claire's hand quilting is the icing on this wee quilt!

Glynis finished her Cheryl Wall Basket quilt top...and now it's ready for quilting!  Love this quilt!

 Glynis said this one was a fast one to put together...the reason being, there is no matching when putting the rows together! Do you see how the rows are staggered?  I like that idea!  This would make a wonderful charity quilt or a fast gift for someone special!  Just imagine it Scappy...

Both Glynis and Sandy took part in Cheri Payne's Sampler Quilt BOM from Cheri's Facebook Page called 'Quilts by Cheri~ Friendship Group'.  It's a closed group but all you have to do is request to be a friend and you can join!  There are lots of  patterns under the FILE tab, FREE for members.....this is one of them!!  Both quilts were beautiful and looked totally different!  

 Sandy is also stitching the Dawn Heese BOM...the Mystery Basket BOM from Linen Closet Blog!  This has got to be the sweetest BOM EVER!
Here's another picture of our monthly bowl fillers...certainly worth another gander!
 See!  I told you that it was a busy month for the Bags!  I ALWAYS look forward to our get together!

Would you believe that hardly anyone does wool around here and none of the shops sell WOVEN felted wool!  I guess that answers the question as to why aren't more quilters turning to the woolie side of stitching! If you can't find wool and don't see wool project displayed in the quilt shops then you wouldn't think to do it!   So it's wonderful that the five of us can get together and share our love for all things wool!  They don't call us the BAGS for nothin'!!  Gawd, I love our name!:o)))  I am such a Bag!!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P

  5. Paulette, did you find any of Uschi's Wool Penny Rugs wool at Nanaimo? She sent some with the quilt shop.

  6. There is very little wool sold at quilt shops where I live, even though there are lots of rug hookers who need it.

  9. The Bags are fabulous, everything they do is great. I especially loved the (what looks like red and black) quilt even though it's not wool. Your monthly bowl filler is really starting to fill up.

  11. The group's name should be Five Bags Empty because so much is accomplished each month. Surely they have no supplies left.

  12. It's always fun to see what you Bags have been up to. It's interesting to see where different styles and techniques are popular or not. Glad you 5 woolies hooked up.
