More from the Allatoona Guild Meeting

The UFO number for last month was Number 1 – my quilt was a fairly small baby/child’s quilt I made from a pattern I wrote several years ago and taught in Las Vegas.  I finished it up and showed it at the meeting.  I also turned it in for Community Service.

0715 UFO 1 Finished

Number 3 was chosen for this next month – due in August.  Unfortunately it is my Swoon quilt.  The top is finished and it is large – about 90 inches square.  I am going out of town for 10 days (going to Las Vegas with my sister to sew for 5 of the days) plus I need to finish my Christmas quilt for Christmas in July.  I still need to find a back for it.  I have a lot of fabric from Sweetwater’s Authentic line that I made the blocks from.

0115 UFO #3 - Swoon Quilt

Here it is right before I added the last border.  I hope I can get it done in time.

Hexie Love at the Allatoona Quilters’ Guild

What a wonderful day we had yesterday at the Allatoona Guild.  Our guest speaker/teacher was Julia Wood of The Hexie Blog.  She was great and I was so happy to finally meet her. Here we are together.

0715 Julia Wood and me

Julia entertained us with hexie stories and lots of hexie quilts.  After a wonderful potluck lunch we had a 3-hour class with circle hexies and also EPP.  Fun!

Here are a few of the quilts that she brought from Alabama to share with us.

She brought more quilts but I kept forgetting to take photos since I was so interested in looking at the quilts and listening to her stories.

More Progress on Christmas Quilt

0615 More Blocks for Quilt

Only one more row before I can start putting the Christmas Row Quilt together.  Of course the last row is the reindeer and it is by far the most complicated.  I have started sewing the strips that will be sewn into the reindeer.  Lots of baggies being filled.
