Here are all the blocks that were brought to the meeting last night.
There were a few people missing last night so we are short a few blocks so the members making this quilt will wait until they receive them to put it together.
We had a few comfort quilts finished or nearly finished on display last night as well.
These quilts will be donated to the adult chemo unit at our local hospital. It is always fun to see how the blocks we make each month are transformed with some sashing and cornerstones into beautiful quilts!
My husband and I visited our daughter last weekend. She moved to a new apartment earlier this year and this was my first time seeing it. I brought my sewing machine along as her drapes were all too long and pooling on the floor. I had to move the furniture away from each window and then pin the drapes to the right length in place followed by ironing the hem, trimming and pinning before setting my sewing machine up on a small table or the ironing board and sewing the hem.
This is not my usual sewing set up, but I managed to get 8 drapes shortened, all to the same length, and they look much better!
The quilt in the foreground is the one I made for my daughter when she started university.
The quilt on her bed was her graduation gift when she finished university. She picked the pattern and fabrics for both quilts.
I am hoping to have some time for some quilting this weekend...we shall see.
