. . . september quilt group . . .

. . . featured lots of 
adorable show and tell . . .
. . . for example this 
framed birthday cake 
mini quilt . . . 
. . . good job, vicki! . . . 
. . . she fell in love 
with lori holt's 
cakewalk pattern . . . 
. . . but felt overwhelmed 
at the thought 
of making an entire quilt . . . 
. . . so, she had the genius idea 
to make single cakes . . . 
. . . and i think she wound up 
making just about 
a whole quilts' worth of them . . . 
. . . they are awesome . . . 
. . . love the quilting 
and the frames . . . 


. . . and the cherries on top . . . 


. . . candice inherited 
a lot of vintage fabric 
when her mom passed away . . . 
. . . she's determined to use it up . . . 
. . . i've lost count 
of how many quilts 
she's put together . . . 
. . . here's the latest one . . . 
. . . a couple more borders 
are in the works . . . 


. . . on their own, 
some of these fabrics 
might not be favorites . . .
. . . but she's done a great job 
of putting them together in a way 
that makes them sparkle . . .


. . . gina is the queen 
of speed quilters . . . 
. . . heavens! . . . 
. . . we all love 
to see her work space . . . 
. . . it looks like 
a tornado's gone through . . . 
. . . and just as quickly, 
she cleans it all up 
and she's gone . . . 

{and look at karen in the background, just minding her own business.
putting the final border on her bliss spice cake quilt.}

. . . gina puts kits together . . . 
. . . she makes patterns . . . 
. . . she's a vender at shows . . . 
. . . and i tell you what . . . 
. . . she is always thinking . . . 
. . . i think she misses owning 
in california . . . 
. . . but we're so glad to have her 
in arizona now . . . 


. . . and finally, 
here's peg's finished 
great granny square quilt . . . 
. . . well ~ almost finished . . . 
. . . she still needs to bind it . . . 
. . . it's for her newest grandson . . . 
. . . it has the softest minkee 
on the back . . . 

. . . and special thanks to nedra 
for being official 
quilt group photographer 
that day . . .
. . . she forgot her own camera, 
so i handed her mine . . . 
. . . it was a great arrangement! . . .
