Another Wheelchair Quilt

Hi friends!
At our meeting last Thursday we did a count of how many quilts we would have for the nursing home.
We had 25 nearly done counting my five but we need 33 so I held my hand one to do two more.
This is one of them.
This fabric is cheater fabric! So It's a easy make.
Still got one more to come up with!
Maybe two If Tommy's cousin isn't in the wing 
Got it sandwiched yesterday!
Then I ironed it.
All I need now is to quilt and then bind. Now I have to come up with another one.  I may have enough left of this fabric to cobble together one of these.
Cleaning and cooking day today! Our family reunion is tomorrow.

Hi friends!
We had a new Girl last night , Imogene and She and I have been talking for a while. Glad she joined us. Her sister is a good friend of many of us.
Liz brought a very pretty quilt top.
With a matching bib!
Susan has finished both of her very pretty quilts.
With her bib.

Ivanell made this before she started having eye trouble.
This was made by Faye. Charlotte showed her how when we first started our group and she took off with it.
Then we had snacks since our Nov. meeting will be giving out the quilt of valor. And Dec. we are going to the nursing home.

Anna's and Christmas sewing

Hi friends!
Got thru with making stars , I think. At least enough to start on her borders.
I got the 30ths charm packs that I needed for a Christmas quilt.
Already started cutting from the template that Dawn sent me.
See! She had already sent me one and it got lost in my sewing room.
Do things get lost in your sewing room?

Hi friends! 
Praying for the people on the coast .
Chris and Amy were down there yesterday but were on their way home last night. He had to check on some of their jobs.
I have done a little sewing , lots of ripping!
I quit , got tired of taking out seams. When you feel bad things just don't go right
I will work on it today.
I have felt so bad since Monday that I just couldn't get any thing done. Started on antibiotic's yesterday .
I like this with the black on the outside but not crazy about it so I will look at it a few more days.
We are having a family reunion here next Tuesdays {could change} I need to do some deep cleaning.
Maybe tomorrow!

Anna"s Quilt, Border? and Binding

Hi friends!
I needed to make some more stars for the border and pillow shams.
I made two so far.
Trying to find something I like for the borders. The black has sparkles like some of the fabric in the quilt but the one on top next to it I kind of like , It's old style Christmas. Burgundy on the bottom and I like the red on the right to.
I got this quilted yesterday  and added the binding.
I used some of the dollar a pound fabric for the binding. I have always loved stripes for binding.
Have a great weekend

In the rain! A hour's drive away.
We carried 8 bags of books back to exchange. Came home with four! We hadn't been this year because sis had surgery and I cut my finger. We read a lot.
I got this book! Plus:
This one.
Then we visited Tuesday Morning.
Our closest one is in Chattanooga .

We had a great time!
