Fun Quilter's Luncheon

Today was the "Grand Reveal" of what we did with the fat quarters I gave my friends for Christmas.  We all started with the same fabrics and ended up with beautiful projects.

Deb did a Bargello.



Faye did a Buggy Barn.



Lorna, my mother-in-law, did a Missouri Star Quilt Company star block.



Mariella made a table runner.



Theresa did this beautiful courthouse steps quilt.



She took a photo outside where we had our luncheon.  Notice the beautiful quilting!


You have probably all seen what I did with the fabric.  It still needs borders finished and quilted.



Linda didn't get a quilt made.  She is the most giving person in this entire world and probably did so much for everyone else that she didn't have time to do for herself.  She is my idol!

We call ourselves the "Priceless Quilters"  because our friendship is priceless and most of them live in a town called "Price".  We have sewn together and gone to quilt shows and classes for many many years.  Others have been a part of us but these are the ones that have really stayed together.  I don't get to sew with them monthly anymore because I work full time but I still join in on our Christmas quilt gift swap.



On our way home we stopped at Lorna's to see all her finishes for this year.  I guess she gave us a little trunk show that I will share with you.  By the way, she is my sweet sweet mother-in-law who is responsible for teaching me to quilt.  I love her so so so much!

Her Dear Jane is all quilted and ready to bind.  The quilting in her border is SPECTACULAR!  I should have my top done this year as well.  This was a project we all did together, and we all have ours in various stages.



I am SO IN LOVE with this peacock machine embroidery quilt!



The one below is a hand applique' Hawaiian Quilt.





The quilt below might not look like muh but if you could see it up close you would drool!  I just love the machine embroidery on the seam lines.



She has really gone to town on her 2017 finishes!  I am so proud of her!

Amazing how different the quilts look from the same fabrics - sometimes you would never know at all! Lorna does beautiful work. How wonderful that she shared her love of the craft to share it with you. And that you were open and receptive to learning. ~smile~ Roseanne

Wow! So much goodness to pour over. :D It's always amazing how the same fabrics turn into such incredibly different looks when they're worked up by different people, isn't it? And what a fun trunk show. Thanks for sharing with us.
