Friends - and Future Projects

Things have been a bit scattered here, and I haven’t been actually writing down my goals lately, but they’re always there waiting to get done. Some got done, some didn’t. Thursday last week, DH left for Calgary to go out turkey hunting with DS1. I thought I’d have 5 glorious days to sew, and sew, and sew – it was apparently not meant to be. But while I haven't been sewing so much, the rest of the Monday evening quilting group have been very busy:

This first quilt is L's that she's been hand-quilting for several weeks and is almost done!! Fabulous work. This second is another L's - her very first, and has been a great learning experience for her. She's done beautiful work, and is ready to layer and send it off to a quilter

These next 2 are W's - she always does real fun quilts like these. The one with the flying geese she calls 'Geese Over Agassiz' - in the center geese flying in the blue skys and sunshine (or over corn whichever way you want to look at it) with the cows in the fields below. We all saw it immediately, but apparently her DH said he didn't know what she was talking about.

These 2 are A's - quilts for grandkids. The Sunbonnet Sues were a long time in the making - and if you look closely the sashing is a Sunbonnet Sue print (and she had enough to put that on the back as well). The red and black is all the things her grandson likes to do.

This is W's scrappy Trips Around the World. We've challenged each other to do this, and hers is the first one sandwiched. Amazing to look at through a peephole!!

Friday afternoon, my brother and sister-in-law called to say they were coming for a visit, arriving sometime on Saturday. We had a great time catching up and SIL and I talked quilting to our hearts’ content. Then we went shopping on Monday:

Lots and lots and lots of fabrics to get onto more and more projects.
Another post to follow with a couple more pics
