A quilt begun and several more finished...

The Good Enough Quilters met tonight and main item on the agenda was planning a quilt to be donated to Pearl S. Buck International for their spring fundraiser. We are using a kimono quilt pattern and each of us will make one block using different Asian fabric. Happy to say that this fabric is helping to bust my stash! Not bad. 

We chose the fabric we want to use since each kimono will be a different fabric. Very colorful. I think all were happy with their choice. Can't wait to see the finished blocks next month. Good that I have a deadline!

From the quilt begun to several finished ones. Debbie wowed us again with her Christmas wallhanging. Love the colors and design of this. Don't those ornaments just pop off the quilt.

Had to share just one closeup of this. So creative.

Dru was really on a roll. This was her first share. She had this little quilt hanging on her front door. Great colors and for sure so fall-like.

The back looks good too.

Next she shared a bright and colorful baby quilt. Now those are colors that really pop. The yellow fabric is really cute too.

The backing is a great fabric. They may look like books from this angle but are really houses in a row.

Dru then shared two old UFO's that have become two finishes. These were blocks of the month that several of us did a few years ago. A good finish.

And her final finish is another set of blocks of the month. I thought I took a picture of the backing but didn't. Dru only used fleece and no batting on this one. A nice comfy cover for cold, winter nights.

You may recognize these from our last meeting. Lynn is making more of the sewing box like the one I won at our December meeting. (Yes, Laura and Fran, I can hear you saying that I stole it!) We each got the pattern and now can make our own. Debbie is already planning to give hers away. 

Hope to post again with actual sewing in the next week or two. 

Have a great month, everyone!
