Yesterday was the regular Cut Ups bee meeting held at Peg's home with a lot of show and tell. First up was Cynthia's outstanding blue and white basket quilt. Two fabrics and her magnificent hand quilting. This will truly be an heirloom to be treasured by her family for many years.
Cynthia, also brought a quilt made using a pattern that her sister designed. Her sister showed this at Market and you will be seeing more of this pattern in the future.
Next was Martha's baby quilt, which has been a labor of love as she has enjoyed every minute of planning and working on this quilt. The sweet hand embroidery adds such a delicate touch and the hand quilting is wonderful. Did I mention that this is Martha's first hand quilted quilt, to look at it you would think she has been hand quilting for years. Way to go Martha.
Our hostess Peg showed off cute little twister that had been purchased as a kit from a quilt shop in Wisconsin. Such soft fall colors and love the pumpkin border fabric.
Adrienne brought her Christmas Star block quilt that highlights her beautiful work as a custom free motion quilter. Since getting her own mid-arm quilting machine she has mastered this technique. Some people are just born free motion quilters.
Rose came late and I neglected to get a picture of her two sided table runner, done in strips with the quilt as you go method. One side fall, the other Christmas. Good idea Rose, can't wait to see what you make for the other holidays. Maybe we can get her to do a class for us on this one.
As for me, not much to show as I have had quilter's block lately and have been working on a knitted scarf.
Sorry, if the pictures seem a little pink, must have had the wrong settings on my camera. Until next time.
Enjoy all the pieces of your life,
