Work Day

Yesterday we had another work day at Franks for the BOM.  There were eight busy worker bees there!.. Several of them went home with their blocks pieced together with the setting triangles!  They are looking great and I like how each one is just a little different because of the colors chosen. Good work!!!!!!    I know there are several people coming to WCTC on Tuesay for the Finishing Finesse class to finish their quilts.  I will bring my camera and post some pictures!

Barb Fabus sent me a pictur of the previous BOM quilt that she finished.  This is what she wrote to me:

This is my first big quilt. It is my learning quilt. It took me along time to figure out what I wanted, I designed it and did the quilting too. I finally found that an ancient Necchi worked best for the quilting as the arm is a little longer and is it smooth and strong! I also experimented with different feet and stumbled onto one that worked great. Of course, most of the quilting (using the term loosely when referring to my work!) was done by that time. I am sure that 2 or 3 times the amount of thread that is in the quilt now has been ripped out over the course of making it. I would not have even thought of making a quilt, nor could I have done it without the inspiration, help and support from Kay Cone. The overt love of everything thread and needle and all of the enthusiasm of the Tuesday BOM has been great and I will always love quilts now. Wendy, your instructions and designs are excellent. Thank you so much everyone. Barb Fabus

Here is a picture of her quilt.  Awesome.  (Is yours finished?  Mine is now hanging in the hallway at the store if you want to see it)

I think I am getting close to an announcement about the nest BOM so stay tuned!

It is a beautiful time to see some perrenials in the garden here are a couple of my iris pictures
