IWP Quilt Group

This was our first meeting in the new house. Luckily it was a small group this week so I was able to iron out any teething troubles. Next week will be better as we now know where to put the lights in the room. We need more extention cables for the sewing machines and our cutting table needs to be lifted a little higher. All easy to resolve....
I was so happy to have Regina (my very best & most useful friend) come to play with OUR treddle sewing machine, it makes a beautiful even stitch. Regina is paper piecing more Christmas baubles.....

The "American ladies", Cathy & Bette, have now finished their Christmas tree baubles and were piecing the tree triangles today.
This is Garen with the quilt she made for the Quilt Show in Houston this year. The background and the tree were quilted first, with the Jenny Bowker method... which is, basically, have lots of fun... there are so many beads on this quilt!! amazing.
This is an ongoing project also of Garens. A Trip Around the World Quilt. Garen remembered where she purchased each fabric, from around the world... It only needs a little more quilting in the borders.
