Pics from my group

My favorite quilt group met this past week, so here are some pics from our meeting!
Rachel has cleaned out her quilt room and is now finishing many of the UFOs she found. This is a bowtie table topper.


Rachel made these two penny rugs from wool.


These are four sheep blocks made with wools that Rachel made.





Rachel used bright batiks to make this quilt and used fleece on the back. It was a free pattern she got from Moda.

This one is called Spin Cycle from the Sidewalk fabric line.  Rachel called it her condemned quilt because so many things kept going wrong while working on it. She pieced the whole thing and realized she had forgotten to add the sashing between the blocks so she unpicked the whole thing. Then she had troubles finding more fabric for the border and then found out her red minky backing was too short while trying to put it on the quilting machine and last of all she found out that same red minky backing showed through on the front with every machine quilting stitch. We thought it turned out beautiful, but Rachel doesn't look at it with loving eyes.

Jeri made this quilt for her husband's office. He loves puffy quilts so she's going to tie it.

Holly used a charm pack for this quilt and then offset the squares and sashing to give it a unique and fun look. She calls it her chemo quilt because she helped her mom with it while her mom was going through chemo.

Holly also put this together using a top her mom had sewn.

Holly also made this mini stars and blocks wall hanging. In the corners of the center piece she attached magnets on the back so that she can change out the themes for each month. Below are a couple of the center squares. The center squares are made with wool and also have magnets attached to them.




Lenette made 20 squares like this and will piece them in a pattern of her choosing to make a humanitarian quilt. 
Cindy made this quilt which be a humanitarian quilt.

Cindy also made this cute kittens in a block quilt. She appliqued the faces and used a kitten flannel for the back.


Sherry shared a quilt that was made using her grandma's blocks.


Diane had stitched a pillow for a friends years ago (left) and noticed how faded and worn it was looking, so she made her a brand new one (right).

Diane also made this Love pillow using wool letters. She used a red print for the back.

Nancy F. made this hat and scarf from fleece and will be making several more for humanitarian.
