November 18th Baby and Quilt Celebrations!

Wow!  What an evening!

First we celebrated the arrival of Jericho Konrad Peterson, who was born on September 23 to Kersten and David Peterson. The group of us contributed blocks for a string quilt in '30's reproduction fabrics.  We presented it to Kersten last night, and got to meet Jericho, too!  Thanks for bringing him, Kersten and David!

Marylu brought a quilt for which she bought the top.  She has wanted a Snail's Trail quilt and thought this was a good way to get one!

Isn't the back amazing, too?

Beautiful, Marylu!

Joyce has been really busy!  Not only has she worked on the three quilts for her sons-in-law, she has made this amazing airplane quilt for one grandson and is doing a second one for another grandson!

Isn't it wonderful?
What a fun one, Joyce!

Then Breigh, Joan's granddaughter, shared her very first four-patch!

Great job, Breigh!

Theresa brought her 50th birthday quilt to show.  Isn't is just amazing?  She told us about the challenges of getting multiple-sized blocks to work in one quilt top.  She has done a fabulous job!

What a treasure, Theresa!

Barb brought two really fun ones.  First, her pumpkin quilt.  The colors are so good.

Isn't it wonderful?

And she brought her "tiny" nine-patch.  Each tiny square is 1/2", and each block is 1 1/2".  Such splendid detail.

Beautiful, Barb!

Then Jessie shared two of her recently finished quilts.  The first is the fourth and last quilt made for Edna Fund's grandchildren.  Made with a combination of batiks and quilter's cottons, she found it challenging using different weight cloth.  I think the result is rather nice though!  The dolphin is wonderful and the quilting Barb did is splendid again!

The second is a baby quilt for her cousin's 2nd baby, and sports a lamb in the middle.

Lovely job on both, Jessie!

Happy Quilting!!
