Quilt With Us

Yesterday we had the regular scheduled meeting of Vintage Stitchers. We met at Janet's house. Here's Janet with her current project:

Janet is showing off a copy of Hop To It by Edyta Sitar, which most of us have bought. I'm going to use the bunny block for a baby quilt.
Janet is working on a quilt for her daughter's friend. The friend brought all her old T-shirts to Janet, and took an active part in selecting fabrics from Janet's stash to fill out the quilt top. The friend paid for the machine quilting, but Janet covered the cost of the backing. She's sewing on the binding now.

Anna, a previous member of the group, who moved away several years ago, was there, so we were enjoying her company. Rebecca had an applique project. She's the queen of applique!

Brenda showed off a quilt top she has been working on. Boy, this would be great for DH. He's a geologist and the fabrics look like rocks.

Here's another view:

We meet twice a month in members' homes. We have 10 members, so usually it's a nice, small group.
What am I up to: I'm trying to get photos of all of my finished quilts to post in my photos. Here's the latest. I finished this in 2000. It took nine months.

It's a Grandmother's Flower Garden pieced using Quilt Patis, which is similar to English Paper Piecing. The piecing took six months and the quilting took three. I love '30s fabrics, because they were still around when I was a small child, and I loved the little animals.
I need thumb surgery and I can't hand-quilt, which is a bummer, but I can still knit and spin. Yesterday I gave my friend Joanie a basket with my hand-spun yarn for her birthday. She admired my Landscape Shawl and threatened to steal it, so now she can make her own.

Happy quilting! --P

Peggy, thanks for sharing. Did you make the basket that you gave your friend Joanie? I am sure she really appreciated her birthday gift.

Nice photos and great quilts! Only wish I had a small group close, but the ones that do meet do it during the day, so that's a no go for me.....................
Thanks for sharing so much fun!

Thanks so much I enjoyed your group show and tell. I don't belong to a group because I can't find one close enough. Thanks for sharing your group with us.
