New Quilts

I finished another quilt last night. My friend; Cindy, machine quilted it for me. I love what she can do to make my quilts look so good!

We had the blocks as block of the month for our local group. Cindy and I talked about having something like this group for quite awhile, then she and her daughter and I picked out the fabric and the ball started rolling! We have 25 people that are making the same patterns, and learning how to put a quilt together. I never realized how many people are interested in learning the art. I am happy that it is turning out so well. It has been so fun getting to know these ladies better and to see then all progress with their quilts.
We have some who have never sewn and some who are pros... They need to teach me what to do now, they are all doing so well!
My quilt is a different color than the rest, but I think it turned out great!
I am also re-posting a quilt that I put on here, only this time it shows it quilted, front and parts of the back. Cindy quilted this one ,too. It has made all the difference in the outcome of the quilts. I especially like the back of this one, it shows the patterns so well!

I am excited to start a new one and see what I can come up with. I am going to wait until January though. I think this month may go by a bit faster than I plan, for some reason or another!!!
Who would have thought that I would ever get involved with quilting? I don't think my mom was ever interested in it, she liked to crochet and bake. I guess it must have been Bessie's influence that got me interested. It has taken years to get here, but now I am really enjoying putting them together and seeing what I can come up with.
I am so blessed to be able to do the things I like to do, in freedom and with safety. I hope I can create some keepsakes for my family, so that they will think of me when they cover up with them and maybe have some fond thoughts now and again!
