Show and Tell at Neuse Quilters Guild.........

If you are ever going to be in Eastern North Carolina on any Wednesday let me know.......... You can join me at the Neuse Quilters Guild..................

Always great fun..................

The quilt pictured below is completely hand done................ Of course the ribbon is made of UNC material..................


This is also an opportunity to layer a quilt........... She started out alone but in a few minutes was joined by several others that helped get the quilt basted in no time at all...............


This quilt is being sent off to our local long arm quilter......... the blocks are 8 inches square and all done with crumbs............


A cute little quilt made to give to Ronald McDonald house..........


One member is becoming a grandmother and has already started the layette.

This will be the raffle quilt for the First Baptist Church (tickets $2.00). Lilly just finished quilting it and now it has to be bound and labeled.................



Click on this to see the outer border.......... She did a fabulous job of mitering the corners.


And a total of 16 pillow cases were finished for the Children's Oncology unit in Greenville.


A postage stamp quilt....... The tree skirt is only attached at the top giving the quilt a third dimension.....



Another quilt for the first grand child........


A quilted vest finished and ready to wear..................





A UFO back from the quilters............ As soon as the binding and label is on there will be some happy dancing going on at this household.



Another Care quilt ready to give...........


It seems that the world is a much warmer and brighter place with all of the things quilters do for others.....................
