The Thursday Group

Yesterday Maria, Joyce and I got together to do some quilting.  Joyce finished her quilt with all the beautiful maple leaves on it and is now making a rag quilt for one of her granddaughters.   This girl is into a lot of sports including hockey and motocross.  Over the years Joyce has made pyjamas for her grandchildren and she is using the left over fabric with all the sports on it for her new quilt.

She is cutting 12 inch squares and needs 15 of the sports and 15 of denim.

Maria is doing paper piecing of a table runner.

She has a few pieces done.  The colours are very striking.  I think her daughter will really like it.

I brought some applique with me and these will end up as placemats for the Quilt Guild to either sell at the show or give to Meals on Wheels. 

We always have a great time at Joyce's in her sunroom and even manage to get some work done.
