January 7th Quilt Celebrations!

Well, I'd say we were back with a vengeance tonight!!  What fun!  It was so good to see everyone again, and what a wonderful array of quilts to share!

Sharon started us off with her first appliqued quilt.  So wonderfully colorful!

And she also showed us a beaded piece of an Indian woman.  So lovely.
I'm sorry to not have gotten a close-up of it.

Then Pat shared two of hers.
I regret I can't remember the name of this one,
but isn't it a fun one to just sit and contemplate the pattern?
Beautiful border treatment!

And then this is a tumbler made to
show off a pantograph pattern she purchased.
The colors are so comfortable.

Carolann shared two with us, as well.
The first is from the $5 club at Quilter's Junction
and became a memorial quilt for Tony, her husband.
It is such a beautiful piece.

And then this one, which she calls Baptist Fan
because of the quilting pattern Barb used on it.
It's a wonderful nine-patch and rails, something I would like to do.  Someday.  :-)
Both are lovely, Carolann.

Joan shared her Pavers with us, made for her 7 year old granddaughter.
Do I have that right?  The colors are great!

Then Theresa shared two with us.
The first is her 2005 Shop Hop quilt, which she is giving to Linus.
It's so cheerful and pretty.  She hopes a young girl will get it.

And then this one depicts her young adult life in school
and her first oil company jobs.
I particularly liked the names of musical artists around the outside border.
I recognized a lot of them, too.
Fun ones, Theresa.

And then Geralyn brought Virginia's quilt to show and to be passed to some of the last people who will contribute to the quilting.  Isn't it just lovely?
Geralyn, you've done a fabulous job of coordinating this!

Happy Quilting!!
