Summer MUST be over…

..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!P1100101

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…

Hope you enjoyed the show!!  I always say.. going to the Heritage Quilt Guild is like going to a Quilt Show EVERY Monday!!  Yeah, Life is SWEET!

  1. What talent and inspiration Paulette! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Always love to see what the ladies are working on, such a talented group.


  3. I knew you would have lots of pictures for us today. All were amazing. I just love going to your guild with you!

  4. Hey, Sweet P thanks for showing us all these great guild pics and your friend Delores and her wonderful stitchwork, HI! Delores, glad you all are stitching along!!!!Sometimes when I don't get any comments, it's like am I all alone and no one likes these, glad to see some are playing along with Mystery Mondays!! Don't forget to tell Delores and anyone else who reads this to register for the giveway on my 100th post, a chance to win all the ornaments I made!

  5. Some more beautiful work from your group. Now I'm off to look at Sock Monkeys.

  6. What fun! There is inspiration everywhere. I'm off to choose from my fabric treasures Christmas fabric for a class tonight at The Calico Cupboard, Ripless Paper Pieced Stars. Will still bring my seam ripper as there is still going to be some ripping going on I'm sure! Have a creative day!

  7. Love all the Quilter-eye candy.

  8. Wowzers look at all those beautiful quilts - I'm in love with the kitty cats - and the Japanese quilt, oh my! You are blessed indeed to be part of such a wonderful group.

  9. Those projects are fantastic - I love to see hand quilting. You are lucky to have this special group. I might have to move to the island.

  10. That first wool project is darling. One mostly sees wool done up in the browns and dark colors....but I love this fresh look.
    Thanks for sharing all the other pictures too!

  11. Lovely work and such beautiful and even hand quilting. So much talent in the Guild, do you think if I sat in their company for a while I could absorb some "talent". Thanks for the tip about Cyndi's blog, I found a very cute little bird hexie ornament.

  12. Sounds like a great meeting. The projects and your photos of them are all amazing.
