Elephant Quilt Two
is coming along nicely!
The water splashes are lightly fused
and the machine appliqué has begun,
it's a slow go ...
much prefer needle turn appliqué!
Is that crazy?
The weather has been fabulous here in New England!
It allowed me to get my mom out and about to
one of our favorite places!
It's a nursery with a coffee shop inside!
We stroll around, look at the pretty plants and sip coffee
(or tea!) and of course get a sandwich and dessert!!
It was a good day!
Since my mom was in a good mind set
we decided to make cookies!
She did the heavy looking on while I mixed the batter!!
awesome cranberry squares and
fabulous oatmeal raisin cookies!
a fun time was had by all...
and then the moment left...
it's very sad what dementia does to a person.
At SCQG October guild meeting
we had a wonderful guest speaker
Her lecture was the best I have ever seen!
The guild's feedback was just a fabulous!!
Gladi discussed the design process and color select that went into each of her quilts,
even bringing the many sketches and designs of each quilt and
telling how she narrowed down exactly how she wanted each quilt to turn out!
Some of her quilts have been featured in major magazines!
It was an honor to have her as our special guest speaker!
Gladi's applique was outstanding!
A girl after my own heart - needle turn appliqué...
I was in heaven!!
OMGosh ... the Japanese fabrics...
check out this boarder
the red stripes are Appliquéd on!!
and straight as an arrow!!
this is her latest work in progress...
hope over to her blog and just
watch how she is working on the finish!!!
Keep in mind that all of these quilts were made while
she was working as a full time Doctor
running a health center at a NH college!!
The best part ...
at dinner we had a conversation about the Houston Festival...
I mentioned I had a room to myself...
Guess who is my roommate now!!
Just so over the moon excited about it!
We will definitely have lots to chat about!!
Here is my man and his "girlfriend"
Bella - our sweet dog!
Bella loves car rides with Stephen!
Just look at that sweet smiling face!!
We had her for four years - she's was a rescue from Georgia...
how could anyone let that face go?? Crazy!
But we are so glad they did!!!
SCQG sponsored our Comfort Quilts "Sew-Cial" this month..
almost 20 guild members participated in making
wheelchair quilts for the local nursing home...
the goal 100 ~ we are on our way!
just a few samples of the wheelchair quilts!
SCQG also sponsored a ruler workshop!
Adele Scott taught part 2 ~ 'More Fun with Westalee Rulers'!
Everyone was hard at work trying to master ruler work!!
Adele was a fabulous teacher!
Took her time, went around to each student to lend a hand,
gave advice or guidance as needed!
and she did lots of demos through out the day
loved this set of rulers...
there is a quilt in the pile that is perfect
for these rulers!!
To wrap up the month...
more EPP peeping for my
Sue Daley 'Quatro' Quilt
getting a few things ready to take along to HOUSTON!!
This will be my first trip to the International Festival -
and the only reason the decision was made to go was so I could
visit this beauty...
Funky Garden In Red is part of the
'Full Bloom' Exhibit and will travel around after the
Houston Festival! She won't come back to me until
August 2018!! So I just had to go visit her!!!
See you all after Houston!!
Have a great Quilty Day and enjoy the process!
