Sew and not swim....

Thanks to Consuelo for hosting today. It was wonderful to see everyone! I forgot the banner and took only a few pictures....oy! We had wonderful food, lots of laughs, as always - and put together a lot of squares, tops, batting and backs for charity quilts. Lois was working on her beautiful Alaska quilt. She also made all of us cute pot holders - thanks! Leigh Anne put together a lovely top. Mare made two adorable preemie, teeny-tiny quilts for her niece's newborn girls. Maureen laid out three different tops and they are terrific. Peggy stopped by to say hello. Truly a nice day...

Blogger is having issues and I can't post the few pictures I took...will try again later.

Good luck to Dolores today - hope you're feeling better soon. Happy last week (day) of summer to all the Quiltmama kids and grandkids! Peace.....a Quiltmama dinner is in order soon, ok? I'll put out some dates later this week.

Don't forget.....Sunday, August 30th is the sew and no-swim day at Consuelo's. Bring projects to work on - or just scraps of fabric and batting and we can work on some charity quilts.

Wishing everyone, especially Dolores, a super day!

Summertime show & tell...

Here are a few pics...

Cathy bought a $1.99 bag of cute scraps at Sauders, added some stash scraps and made this...it is so cute!!

My niece's bridal shower is Saturday. Her favorite color is purple.....I made her a monogram pillow...


to match the double Irish chain lap quilt.

Bee time.....

Just realized that I forgot to share show&tell pictures! We had nice time...thanks to Maureen for hosting. Myself, Cathy, Leigh Anne, Lois and Dolores - we chatted and caught up on things. One change - the 'Sew and not-swim day' is moved to Sunday, August 30th. Hope you can come. On to the pictures....

This is a whale that Kelly made - his name is Wallace. She hand-stitched him.


I made this from a tea towel I bought in Cape May - I put borders on it and am hand-quilting around the little pictures.


Isn't this cute...Cathy bought this elephant fabric up at Burkholder's last week - and made this adorable baby quilt for Kerry's friend.


This backing was on sale at Burkholder's - a great deal and so cute!


Cathy's alphabet quilt - awesome!


I made this wheelchair bag on Saturday afternoon for one of Kelly's Sunrise buddies.

Hope you are all staying cool! See you down the road.....peace.
