Mini Quilt Show

Here are some simple but pretty quilts that were shared at our last quilt group gathering. All of these were former UFO's finished by my friend Pam.

The next quilt is a simple flying geese quilt, made by my friend Gayle for her husband. Each block is a different fabric, representing his various interests. I thought it was a great idea. Gayle said that she had made so many quilts for her children and other family members that it was high time she made one for her husband. It will reside in his den when it is finished.

There are a few more quilts to share, but Blogger doesn't want to let me post any more right now. I'll save them for another day.
I'm working on three Christmas quilts and one art quilt. Not far enough along to share pictures just yet.

I had a fun day off today, mostly spent shopping. I found some pretty shirts in lots of colors, and they actually fit which is even better. I tend to buy several of the same item if I like it and it fits. I bought shirts in purple, teal, pumpkin, and pale green.

I will probably spend the rest of evening enjoying a good read.

It's always nice seeing others' pieces. Traditional does not equal any less creative as it's still self-expression.

Pretty quilts. The first three have similar colors, don't they? A consistent style for this quilter.
