Quilting Bee update

It is about time to show you what we are up to in our Quilting Bee. Our latest project is a Magic Vine quilt. We used the applique patterns from Eleanor Burns' book. Each of our members appliqued 3 blocks, all with the technique they liked most or wanted to have a go at. 


Doesn't it look lovely !! We progressed a bit since this picture is taken and have the 3 vertical rows all ready sewn. In our next meeting we will finish the top and can start the basting. 

And.. we did a lot more, that is to say, some members really did great jobs at home. Potoula Andreakou made this lovely baby quilt, ready to find a good home.



 

As we are talking about babies, Maria Kalamara made quite a few bibs. We are planning to have a sale to collect some money to add to the quilts we are donating. Lots of people live under the poverty level and are in desperate need of money. A few of the bibs.




Maria also finished all the blocks of this project. An enormous job! Now we have to sew them all together.  


 Other members are also working at home for our sales project. They made and are making hot pads, placemats, tote bags, bags to store plastic bags and so on. I don't have pictures yet. 

Pitsa Lambrinou finished this quilt. She did most of the quilting and the bias. I don't have a picture yet of the finished quilt. It is gorgeous, and I will show it in a next post. Katerina Exomanidi drawing the border quilt pattern.


 Busy, busy bees !!!

Wat een mooie projecten.
De bovenste bloemenlap vind ik mooi en het babyquiltje en de slabbetjes zijn prachtig.
Wat een mooi idee zit daar echter!
Veel succes!

Liefs, Gerry

Dearest Ada,
That looks like a very industrious group of ladies giving their very best and as we call it here: 'Labor of Love'.
Love the baby quilt and also the cute bibs; those are practical things too.
And that big quilt is quite a challenge.
Hugs,
Mariette
