Sew Eclectic Christmas

 Monday Night was The Sew Eclectic Christmas Party at Pat and Mel Bell's Home.  What a wonder time we had!  Pat and Mel served us the most wonderful Dinner.  Then after Dinner we got to open the Small Quilts we each made.  We have a very talented group.  And it was fun getting to see what everyone made.

Deanne made this Beautiful Flower Arrangement for the table.
 Here is Elaine with this beautiful Ruffled Scarf.
Suzie made this beauty.
Beth made this one.

Jeremy created this and had it framed.
Wanda made the Fall Leaf one.

Charlotte's creation.

I did this.  But after seeing what everyone else made, I wish I had put in more effort.  Well, next year.  I'll start early.

Kristin made this sexy one!
Barbara did these.

And this too!  She is known for not finishing things!

This beauty was made by Deanne.

Deolinda made the Hearts.
Sara came up with this piece of art.

Pat made the Christmas Tree.

And Sharon made this with the tiny little pieces.
It was a great party and we all went home happy.  If we didn't, it would have been our own fault!

Beginning Freemotion Feathers

I finished my Feather Sampler.  It's for the Beginning Free motion Feather class I will be teaching at Thimble Towne next year.  I will be teaching from the book Feather Adventures! by Patsy Thompson.  Hopefully I will be teaching Hyperquilting Feathers the following Quarter.

I will also be giving a Trunk Show and teaching this Beginning Free motion Feather class at Nipomo Quilt Guild in April.  I'm looking forward to that too!

This what I've been quilting on today.  Stay tuned!  I hope to have it done this week.  But don't hold me to that. :)

I finally finished this quilt made completely out of scraps.  I started it in a class with Marie Strait.  She was one of the speakers that the Common Threads Quilt Guild had this year.  Barbara Sindlinger gave me the purple for the border.  She said it was from a sheet.  It worked perfectly.  I think I'm going to give this as a gift.  But I really like it.  And it's hard to give it away.  A Quilter always hopes the person you give it to will love it and take of it.  But once you give it away, you don't have any control over that.

Here is another one I finished.  It was made from a Jelly Roll I've had for years!  I finally got it made.  I like it.  But it was really out of Square.  So  I added the borders to help stabilize it.  And they were really hard to make fit.

Here is a closer look.  I'm going to give this one to my Nephew and his wife for Christmas.
