What a great day. A few of us quilters got together today for a quilters' gathering. We met at Cher's house. She was so gracious to invite us over for the morning and lunch. Cher showed us her beautiful quilts, we feasted our eyes on her stash, oh my, what a stash and we had show and tell with a few of our own projects. There were five of us, Cher, Holly, Patti, Michelle and myself. All I can say is: What a great day it was!
Here is my current project. I am using up left overs from the Colorado Beauty quilt I have been working on. I miscalculated and cut to many strip sets so I had to do something with the leftovers. This is what I have come up with so far. I have one more flower to make but have to wait until tomorrow when I finish my laundry. Why you may ask, well I used the dryer sheets to as the backing on my applique pieces and I need one more to finish the rest of the petals so I will wait until I finish my laundry tomorrow to do that. I have not measured the piece, so I don't know the dimensions yet and I am still thinking of a name for the piece. I saw the most beautiful applique today that I have ever seen in my life. Patti from Quilting is my Passion has to be the best appliquer (this is not a word but I am going to use it any way, I will just make it up for this post) on this planet. Her work is so precise, one would think it was painted on the piece. Mine, I can tell you right now will not be like that. I will be happy with however mine turns out but in the back of my mind aspire to someday be as good as Patti.
Have a good evening. Dot
