I've got a few quilts for today all made by lovely ladies with "J" names. Jeanne, Judi and Judy how fun is that?
Like everyone else I'm still crazy busy, but had the chance to attend a quilting retreat last week, more on that later. The guilds are keeping me busy trying to come up with new and fun ideas for programs, gearing up for the quilt show in 2013 and being President of the other has kept me busy learning all about finances of the budget process. Thank goodness for some really great help!! Now on to the quilts!
Jeanne is a doll!! She's dynamite in a small package! I had the pleasure of working with and getting to know Jeanne and hubbie John during our last quilt show. Fantastic couple! John headed up the setup (and picked up) the frames for our show, it was a super smooth operation thanks to him! Jeanne was at the retreat and shared a funny story about not being able to find her "invisible" thread. John offered to help, but can you imagine...."help me find my invisible thread"....um, it's invisible, can't see it...lol!! Okay, so I'm probably the only one who thinks that's funny, but come on, it's suppose to be invisible so how can you see it to find it?
Enough, on to the great quilt that Jeanne made and I had the pleasure to help her finish. It's a log cabin blended with trees and stars. Isn't it great?
She chose the Denali by Anne Bright as the quilting design, here's an up close picture....
Next we have Judi. She's a fellow member of the other guild that I belong too. Judi made this wonderful man's quilt and we used a quilting design called Calm Waters, another Anne Bright design. I recently discovered you can find Judi and her family in a local restaurant on Sunday nights playing trivia for prizes. They are the team to beat!! Fabulous quilt and look for another one very soon!
Joyce in NC sent me a few of her quilts. Three of the four were so bright and colorful! Loved working with them. Can't remember why I had to call her, but certainly enjoyed chatting on the phone. Joyce is moving and will be closer to one of her girls and grandkids. She's leaving behind the "my gals in NC" group and I'm sure they are going to miss her greatly. She is a sweetie. Here's her quilts.....
simple snowball quilt....
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this one with the prairie point border...ULTRA COLORFUL!
My word! The backing on this one will make your eyes cross! But I LOVE it too!! Great use for some really wild fabric...Good job, Joyce!!
Okay, that's it for today. As always you can see more pictures of these great
quilts over at the other blog...
Wishing you a wonderful, productive week.
Thanks for checking on me,
love to hear what you've got to say............
