Piecemaker's Meeting

We had a great day at Piecemakers. The potluck was great and the Krispy Kreme bread pudding was a hit. A few months ago, we had an exchange of small blocks/strips for braid quilts. I decided that I had more than enough unfinished projects and didn't participate. Today, two of the members brought the quilts that they are working on from the exchange.

This one belongs to Jan K. She pieced them in a color-wash way and has the cutest little 3 inch blocks to add next. Some of them are paper-pieced and have lots of little tiny pieces. This will be a great quilt when finished.

The second one is Jan C's. She is using her braids to border a simple quilt. She brought it to ask opinions on. Of course, we all had at least one opinion - I think we confused her more than helping her.

Next, Pam brought a quilt that she designed last year at a Jinny Beyer seminar. It is beautiful and her quilting enhanced it even more.

Here is the back of the quilt. She changed colors of thread and the design really shows up. Her feathers are beautiful.

We also exchanged our 10 inch pieces of fabric for this year's block exchange. I will try to get photos of the fabrics tomorrow. It is really interesting to see the variety of fabrics that each person picked out. Of course, mine is lime green.

The quilt show meeting went well. I think we have decided on the categories for next years show. We will present them to the steering committee at the end of the month.
