The Thursday Group

Four of us have decided to get together on Thursday afternoons to do some quilting.  It has been an interesting time.  We are all working on something different and everyone helps everyone else.  Some days it seems we get very little accomplished but that is alright because we eventually get things done.

We took a 5 week course in the fall so we are all still working on our quilts.  This past Thursday we spent some time looking out at the snow and wondering just how much we were going to get.  Not much fell, about 5 cm, but it sure was blowing.

This is Joyce and Maria wondering about the snow.

Joyce's quilt.  I love the beautiful colours in this quilt.  They are maple leaves.  It is called "Autumn Ridge Lap Quilt" from Company's Coming Crafts

Maria's table runner is the "Little Charmers III" pattern but she added a another square and triangles to the end so that it would be very long.  What beautiful gold colours and accented with black!!

Joyce and Pierina busy sewing.  Pierina's is a Buggy Barn pattern done in flannelette.

Pierina's quilt all finished.

Here's the four of us.  Me, Maria, Joyce and Pierina.  We are so lucky to be able to use Joyce's plant room ( as she calls it) with all the natural light coming in through the windows.  It makes for a great afternoon.

What a fun group...I wish I had a group that lived closer to me to sew with.
