Gladys, Michelle & Mitzi came all the way from Kent, Gina from Newcomerstown, Momma Barb from 'clear out in the boonies' and Barb from Dover. I only had to walk across the front yard!
Gina made this adorable log cabin pumpkin for Halloween. She said she made a mistake. Can you find it? That's what I thought. Relax Gina and enjoy the process!!
This was the first time Gina worked with very small pieces. She now has a new respect for Momma Barb who is working on a Snake River Log Cabin.
Momma Barb worked on a "No Sew Throw" with puppies and polka dots. She also worked on "10 Minute Tablerunners" and some crocheting.
Momma Barb's sweatshirt says, "Life's too short, Eat dessert first". There is a story about that :)
Mitzi worked on a "Dr. Seuss Grinch" quilt. I love the Grinch! Here is Mitzi trimming the preprinted blocks to fit with the tree blocks!
Michelle made a beautiful Colorado Log Cabin for her sister. I didn't get a photo of it, but if you go to www.gladysgab.blogspot.com you will be able to see it. Michelle was working on quilting a wall hanging for her daughter. It's all about Coffee!
And sometimes we just have to stop and service our machine!
Barb arrived a little later than the rest, but still had time to work on this very bright quilt. It is hard to believe it is a Thimbleberries pattern due to the fabric selection. We QBees think it is beautiful! When it is complete I'll post a photo. There is one more border to go!
I worked on this quilt out of the "Livin' Large" book. This is the second one of this pattern. I had troubles with the first one and was determined to get it right this time. I haven't taken a photo of the first one yet, but I will.
The fabric for this quilt mostly came out of my stash. I only bought the black for the centers and the grey for the sashing, which I ran out of. Instead of holding up production, I used a different gray in a grey block and went with it. "X" marks the spot!!
I also found 6 yards of backing fabric in my stash and had just enough of the outer border to make binding. I love when that happens. I can finally see my stash decreasing!!!
We all just love having time together. We are trying to meet once a month either here or at another QBees house. We may sew/quilt, go to a quilt show, shop...I guess whatever we feel the need to do. I am just so happy to have this group of friends. I think maybe we should do a weekend retreat someday!
I am so blessed to have this wonderful studio to offer to everyone. The old ping pong table is raised to the perfect height for cutting. There is enough seating for 8 QBees, lots of windows and lights. If you look in the photo above this one, you will see the other tables.
As you can see, Gladys is at the ironing board. I cannot post any pictures of her projects in case a relative views the blog!
Thank you QBees for a wonderful day! I can hardly wait until next month! November 10th!
