Heritage Happenings….

I am happy to report that the Heritage Quilters are alive and well and have been having WAY too much fun without ME!!

See for yourselves…

Gorgeous Spring quilts in the making…

P1230152  Yup…this quilt couldn’t get any happier if it tried!!P1230154 I love the fine satin stitch around each flower petal and swirl…


And this quilt is made from a panel.  The little motifs were cut off in circle shapes from a panel and placed like balloons floating across the sky…very sweet!


Here’s a closer look….


Mug rugs seem to be the rage right now…here’s one that Vicki made out of wool…


And the same pattern made out of cotton…SEW CUTE!


This beauty was getting prepped for hand quilting!!


I love the way the colours fade into each other!


Someone..or perhaps a group of quilters got together and made a gazillion of these blocks…


They made enough blocks to put together over ten charity quilts!  Which just proves..many hands make light work!


Hazel’s been busy too…she whipped up this magnificent quilt for a wedding gift for her nephew and his new wife…


…and just LOOK at her quilting!! Gorgeous!  Hazel has bought herself a NEW LONG arm and is in the process of selling her MID ARM…if you live in the area and are interested in buying it, give me a shout and I will hook you two up!!!  Has she got a deal for YOU!!


This quilter took a panel and cut it up and put it back together again!!  Very effective!


I LOVED this Civil War beauty!!  Absolutely stunning!


You NEED to see the fabrics up close and personal…and while you are at it, check out that wonderful quilting!!  The icing on the cake!


And look what they FOUND in the back room where we keep the fabrics for charity quilts!  Amazing!  No one fessed up to making it but Hazel generously volunteered to quilt it…this will become a charity quilt..if no one claims if first!!!


Sew you see…they had WAY TOO MUCH FUN!!  But that’s OK…because they’ve got all kinds of fun planned for the coming months!  Looks like Sandy, Heritage Judy and I came back just in the nick of time!! :o)))

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
