  6. the pieces shown truly are inspiring...that is what I like about guilds and bloggers...I get so motivated

  7. I am glad you joined the group too. Lots of lovely work and ideas.

  8. There are some extremely talented people in your guild!

  9. Could you please tell me the title of the book where we can find "candy swirls"? It's wonderful block, but probably really hard to make:(
    Thank you for inspirations!

  10. Amazing quilts once again. I wouldn't even dream of making those swirly patterns, but I really loved the one with dark and light squares/triangles (5th of the finished quilts).

  11. Thanks for filling my morning with such inspiration....totally love it all ....

  12. How FUN!
    I love the appliqués, and the Candy Swirl looks very nice! All of the pieces are fun to see!
    Thanks for posting your group's work!

  13. I don't think I could join that guild, I'd be so intimidated by all those wonderful quilters! Of course, your own projects are so wonderful, you fit right in. That tiger is something else - so beautiful!

  14. Those spinning stars and that tiger......Amazing!

  15. Great pics...love the spinning stars!

  16. It's so nice to see work that isn't all hurry up and finish. Hand sewing is relaxing and a wonderful thing to do while socializing with friends. Thanks for the show and tell.

  17. Wow! Lots of gorgeous quilts and projects in the making.

  18. I do love the spinning stars...
    My grand daughter would love the tiger quilt..

  21. What beautiful work & the Tiger one is stunning there is a lot of talented people there that for sure
    Hugs Janice

  22. Wow, every week? How inspiring to keep up with the sewing. Some beautiful work pictured.

  23. Thanks for the quilt show! I'm actually making that very first hand-pieced whirly quilt, but I got the pattern and templates from Australian Patchwork & Quilting like, 6 years ago! I have miles to go and of course, have totally lost interest in the repro prints I was using. Oh dear.

  24. Wow all those wonderful quilts, and you do this EVERY Monday???? Wow, wish I had some time to do just a wee little bit of what you ladies are doing. Keep up the great work, we all love to see the finished projects, and the ones in process too!!
