Last guild meeting for the summer....

Once a month I get to hang out with a lovely bunch of coconuts!!(Just kidding)--I mean really wonderful women who share the same love of fabric, friendship and quilt making. There were pretty flowers on every table and plenty of delicious food for the potluck dinner...

There were 13 (i love that number!!) Cake Stand quilt block Challenge quilts to judge and vote on...
There were 4 winners, and all the entries were clever and beautiful!! This one is mine..not in the top 4--but I like it very much and it was fun to make!
Heading to the Great Lakes Quilt Museum tomorrow for another 'road trip' with 10 other guild members. We will have another 'Behind the Scenes' tour, then a visit to the museum for the 'Patterns of Inquiry" exhibit of quilts on display till September. (more pictures to follow--i'm sure ;-)
Here's the start of a possible baby quilt. The mom-to-be asked about a yellow/grey color theme...I think I'm seeing some machine applique on this one, for sure.......
Enjoy the beautiful Summer weather this weekend. If it gets too hot outside--come in and sew! :-)

Sorry I missed the party. Your challenge quilt is a beauty - those gals don't recognize talent! Barb's is amazing! That baby quilt could use some little animals marching across that open space - how pretty and so modern! Thanks for the memories.

Your quilt challenge turned out great, love the colors.
Have fun at the museum
