Here are some of the other rug projects that were being worked on at that meeting. Terri was able to join us for the first time in a long time and we enjoyed visiting with her - she took a class from Karen Kahle in Phoenix earlier this year and is hooking a floral basket design of hers.
Myra is making good progress on her little purse - those flowers really pop against navy background. Her proddy flowers are so nicely done!
We meet at Nancy's house and this cute wreath greeted us on her front door - it's made of felted wool sweaters that her daughter made from thrift store finds - so cute!
Nancy was pulling the last few loops of the third piece that will become a pillow - her version of Magdalena Briner's lollipop tree.
Yvonne has started a tradition log cabin quilt design.
Awhile ago I was thumbing through some of my really old Miniature Quilts magazines and saw this little quilt called Bricks done in Christmas colors. I thought it looked like a quick sew and I dove right in using fabrics from my 1" scrap basket. Finished size is about 7" x 9". I guess you could call it a charm quilt because each piece is a different fabric. I should have done a better job of spacing the light blocks, but I didn't notice that until it was too late.
At the thrift store last week I stumbled upon this small quilt top and bought it for $2.99. Whoever made it did a good job on the sewing, but it's too plain for me so I think I'll spiff it up with some kind of applique after I tea dye it a bit. I could add some blue stars and give it more of an Americana flavor - or I could add some green holly leaves or trees and make it have a Christmasy theme - any other suggestions to help me figure out what to do? The blocks are about 9" square.
I have been working diligently on Pam Buda's new sew along - I have all my HSTs made and a couple of the blocks sewn together - will share a picture of it soon.
