Quilt Group's May Meeting

Our group was small this month, but still an inspiration! Wish I had time to sew!!

First up is Janet's red, black, and white quilt. Scrappy but focused at the same time. Love the sawtooth border.

Next are Helen's house-'holders. Raw edged appliqued. Super cute.

Helen also shared a "kitchen sink" quilt she made from UFOs. We commented on how Helen has the best leftover blocks! Sweet quilt, with a touch of sassy in the black and white binding...

Terry does such careful applique. These are turned-edge Easter eggs- she'll be ready for next year!

She shared a circle quilt too- we still are in love with them!

And here is a Dr. Seuss quilt for a grandchild-I know this is going to be well loved...

Neva's quilt for her friend has been quilted, and is ready for the binding. I loved the fabric in the pieced backing too.

I didn't get a photo of the guest book Nan made for her son's upcoming wedding. Everyone will sign quilt blocks, and after the wedding, Nan will make them into a quilt. A fun idea for creating a memory quilt!

Thank you Janet for the delicious lunch, and to everyone for the fun get together.

Make it a Wonderful Day!

Big Kitty in the Neighborhood

So this is who I saw today at 1:30 pm. 

Just up our street, two houses from us. 

                                              Yep. Wildlife likes our neighborhood. So do I!

Painted Packing Paper Flowers

We painted flowers with the paint left on our pallets after we finished our paper mache artwork.

 The brown craft paper was already cut just the right size- it was the packaging between the glass plates we collaged back in December. And it was free too. Yes, I keep everything.

The kids painted the flowers, and then I cut them out at home. A coat of shiny modpodge firmed them up a bit so we could shape them to add dimension. We hung them on the wall with our artist photos- each of the kids holding their paper mache artwork.

Make it a Wonderful Day!
