Once a month, I meet with my Tangled Threads bee and we sit and sew and chat and otherwise have fun. We meet in a room at the quilt shop where I work. So I should add that sometimes we sit, sew, chat, and buy!
Me, I worked on quilting my Mini Love challenge for Island Batik. Sorry, it's not ready to show you just yet! But here's a peek.
By the way, if you've got a quilt project that's red, pink, romantic or otherwise Valentine's, please share it on my Wednesday Wait Loss.
Sometimes at bee we have spontaneous show and tells as members finish a quilt top or other project. Elizabeth showed us her crazy quilt first. Love the quilting on this one!
Elizabeth also shared this beautiful quilt top that features Laurel Burch fabric. I love those fussy cuts!
Mary shared her quilt top, Farfalle with Pesto Sauce (the block is called Farfalle--a kind of pasta). Looks good enough to eat! <wink>
Sometimes bee is just the right place to ask an opinion for a project that's giving us trouble. Here, Paula is discussing options for bordering her quilt.
Sometimes, bee is the perfect place for sharing a new technique. Mary shared her method for adding a magic two-color binding to a quilt. Mary shared a close-up photo of he binding in my Wednesday Wait Loss post.
Remember the mug rugs I made for Galentine's Day? I gave Susie hers (didn't get a photo of her with it though <sigh>).
Turns out I was right! She loved the colors I chose, and the butterfly backing.
From the mug rugs I made last year, I let Mary and Suzie take their pick. Funny, they chose exactly the ones I thought they would!
All in all it was a good day!
