Today Is National Quilting Day

It was a great day for a Quilt Bee since this is National Quilting Day.  The Quilt Bee Committee did a lot of background work and made up kits for us all to work on.  They found patterns on the Internet from Moda Bakeshop and made a definite effort to find simple easy patterns so that we could finish the quilt top in one day.  There were between 25-30 ladies at the Community Centre working all day except for a wonderful lunch that the Committee supplied.

Who would have thought that blue and green would look so nice together.

What man wouldn't love to have that on his bed.

A Wonky four patch.

Frog's Galore

Green and Purple go well together in this quilt.

So simple but so nice.

Maria and I made this one.  It almost looks tropical.  It is called Interwoven also from Moda Bakeshop.  We were given 5 inch squares and cut them into 2 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch rectangles and then added a 2 1/2 inch white square.

There were at least 8 or 9 other quilt tops that were worked on at the bee but didn't get finished.
It was a wonderful day and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
