Quilting with friends

Lillian knitted the sleeves of her sweater and pieced the rest, its much cuter in real life.

My girlfriends and I spent the day at the local quilt shop, quilting together. The name of the shop is Quilted Memories and she has a wonderful, huge classroom that she lets us use for the day for $5.00 each. Below are some of the projects.

Kay with a quilt she brought for "Show and tell". The batiks are from Moda with no two alike and the pattern is from Laundry Basket.
Kay with a top she pieced today, it's from Ricky Tims book, Convergence. I believe it's his fabric line also.

I pieced this "Schlep" bag for my "adopted" daughter, Vicky for Christmas. She loves lizards, turtles and frogs, so I used them on both sides, all I could find, my friend Deb even sent me some of hers from Alaska. This is a wonderful, easy, big tote (it holds a good full size quilt), and its reversable. I can't remember who made the pattern, but I made a made a lot of them. My friend said they think its on the internet now, but I'm not sure . If you can get a hold of the pattern, try one, their like potatoe chips, you can't make just one. This is the reverse of the bag.
Mary with a simple table topper, from the Take 5 pattern. Makes a nice Christmas gift.

The Schlep bag turned out cute. Tell Kay Ricky would like what she's done. Gee I miss you all!
