Here is is laid out on the floor before assembling.
Here it is while being quilted on my home sewing machine at the kitchen table.
And thanks to a timely post from Kyle - who blogs at Timeless Reflections - I even made a label for the back of the quilt! Thanks for the reminder of how important this step is Kyle!
Yesterday was the 1st Tuesday and our rug group met at Angela's house this month. Lots of great show & tell - as well as a yummy lunch and delightful conversation!
Sandy got her rabbit rug done in time to display it for Easter last weekend!
And now she's working on these fall pumpkins with a big yellow moon and a couple of crows.
Tonia made a fun, fun wooly basket to store worms or whatever else she might want to put in it. With all those pockets around the outside she can carry her hooks, scissors, cell phone and other goodies. You can see more details photos on her blog. She made it from a pattern designed by Kerry Stitch Designs - who is a local gal - but she changed all the appliques to her own designs.
Her new project is a fairy tale rug - Billy Goats Gruff - and it's off to a great start! I can't wait to see that troll under the bridge all hooked up!
Last month Angela helped teach a dyeing class for our state Rug Hooking Guild. When she got home she dyed two pieces of wool using a technique that one of the other gals taught - isn't it beautiful? I missed that meeting but hope to get the information so I can give it a try too.
Angela shared this Disappearing Nine Patch quilt that she recently made - she's says it's really, really easy - but has a lot of WOW factor when it's done!
Jeanette also had a quilt to share - a table runner that she's making for the 4th of July - I love how the center of each star has a different quilt block in it - and of course the color combination is always a winner!
Jeanette's Fraktur Bird is finished and bound now - such a fun little piece that Sharon designed.
I should have the crocheted edge of my row rug done soon and I'll be posting pictures of it then. Trying to decide on what to hook next - I have several UFO's that I should finish - and I'd love to hook a 5'x7' area rug for my living room - so we'll see what I end up doing.......
