April Quilt Group Festivities

Our "Sisters'n'Stitches" group met at my house this month. I must admit, we did more laughing than sewing. Lorali showed us her amazing quilt. Isn't it spectacular?!

This is also Lorali's. It is so beautifully done in vintage repro fabric.
This collage was done by Darlene. The picture doesn't do it justice. She machine embroidered the letters, embellished them, added the quilted elements and incorporated sewing memorabilia from her Grandmother and Great Grandmother and then framed it in a shadow box. The picture is of her Grandmother.  Really amazing!

This is Margy's impressive machine embroidery work.

Barb used machine embroider on this skirt and the results were really cool. (See below)

Margy embroidered shells on some towels for a great wedding gift.

Anita painted this darling planter for a friend. We have many talents represented in our group!
Anita also painted this stylish sheep. It is so fun to be inspired by each other each month. Next month we have a 12" X 12" block challenge and we decided to have an "Americana" challenge during the summer months this year. It should be fun. Thanks so much for dropping by. I will be posting our quilted post cards for this month soon. Love, Derrith

Darlene's shadow-box tribute to the family sewists who came before her brings tears to my eyes! What a wonderful thing to do :-)
