Annual Quilt Bee 2016

Yesterday was our annual quilt bee held at one of the local community centers.  There were about 20 ladies sewing from kits that the committee had put together.  All the pieces had been cut to size so it was just a matter of making half square triangles and then making them into blocks.  A lot of the ladies were working on a block called Diamond Square Block that came from a website called "3 and 3 quarters".  This gal has a lot of really different blocks. I think I will have to borrow a few of hers in the future for my donation quilts.

Only one person got their quilt finished so the rest of us took ours home to complete and return.  We were given batting, backing and borders to complete each quilt. 

I finished mine today and it is ready to be quilted.  I have enough border fabric to make binding too.

This is my block, it is really scrappy.

Looks like a lot of production here.

It was a wonderful day.  Lunch was supplied and some of the ladies brought salads and deserts to go along with the beautiful meat and cheese tray that was provided.
