Hello, Ties that Bind Quilters! I'm coming to you from my house, where I spend almost all my time. I haven't been at the meetings lately during the pandemic, since I'm babysitting my grandchildren including a five month old baby. I MISS YOU!
Colleen has been kind enough to send photos she took at the July meeting, so all of us who can't come can see some of what you're sewing.
First things first--who won the Color Challenge? Remember, this was the challenge to make a quilt with two colors plus a background. Below are some of the entries.
The winner is: Jeannine! This is her beautiful quilt, below.
Colleen won second prize:
And Mary M. won third prize.
Congratulations to the winners, and to everyone who participated.
Now, on to show and tell!
(Just a note on the photos--I'm not sure why they are so small. I will figure it out and fix it for next month.)
Cindy P. made a fabulous orphan block quilt. I spy a Christmas sweater block!
Jean B. has been busy! Here's the first quilt in this pattern, and
here's a second one. But she wasn't done there.
Take a look at this beauty!
Jen E.'s quilt is gorgeous in green,
and so is the back!
Aren't these colors terrific? Quilt is by the talented Joan L.
Lola finished this amazing quilt. The pattern is Frolic, by Bonnie Hunter. Check out all the tiny pieces!
Mmm, Mary L.'s star quilt is tantalizing.
Here's a seasonal delight by Mary M. ,
and her knock-out quilt!
Mickey showed this one, a cute classic redwork for Christmas. I'll bet she could help you make one too.
And now, one of the most prolific quilters in our group, Nancy P., shows what she's been up to lately. (How does she do it? Does she sew in her sleep?)
Stunning work! I always look forward to seeing what Nancy does with scraps. Or with anything!
Did you make this pretty quilt? If so, let me know (in the comments or through email) and I would be happy to give you credit.
Masks don't have to be boring! These masks are great. The masks in the first picture are the prettiest ones I've ever seen. The ones made of patriotic fabric are for the V.A., and I don't know who made them, but good job, ladies.
So that wraps up another monthly meeting. The next one is August 19th.
Keep safe, and keep quilting!
