January 09 Show and Tell

My quilt group, Material Girls, met this past Wednesday. What an amazing group of friends I have!! They are all so talented and it's always a treat to see their handwork each month--so inspiring. I have all kinds of ideas swimming around in my head now. Where to begin is the big question. Enjoy the slide show.

Finished tops and boggle fun

We went out of town right after Christmas and look how long it's taken me to get back into the swing of things here. We've been back for over a week. Our new family game is Boggle and it gets very intense. It's also pretty hilarious to hear the words that my littlest girls come up with. Sometimes they really surprise us!

I finished 2 quilt tops over the holidays, so now comes the fun and scary part, machine quilting them. This first one I will attempt to do myself since it's not very big. Any ideas for the white space around the flowers would be appreciated. Should I echo quilt or just stipple or what? I'll post a picture of the second top later. In the meantime I need to call the quilter and get on her waiting list. I can't believe how long her list is now. She's really become popular but I know it's because she's so good and worth the wait.
