Tonight's gathering....

I am still nursing my Ruby, in that I have to stop her from getting rambunctious. Not getting anything done on Pfaffy, but am finishing off my hand quilting on my little whole cloth sampler. Just got about another hour's worth to do tomorrow (eyes going bonky), and then I will post a photo.

We had a Crescentwood quilt gathering tonight. More "show and tells"!!! We all love Show and Tell!!! First we have N's Bargello again, only this time it is bound and quilted. The boarder she use finishes it off nicely, and though you can't see it, N did a lovely job of quilting it.



This second Bargello is D's creation. It is just a top right now, but I bet she will have it completed soon enough! D is one of our busy bees of the group.


Photos just don't do justice to showing the beautiful fabrics we use sometimes, such as in D's Disappearing 9-Patch. She used some beautiful Christmasy colored fabrics. She mentioned donating it once she is done, but the memory is failing to bring up to who/what?! Ahhh live in my 40s....



Another quilt top made by D's hands. This one is made of flannels. It will make a nice cuddle quilt when complete.





This is J's work of art, completely quilted and bound. Just needs a label and then it is off to her nephew for his graduation gift. Lucky guy!!!
The backing on this quilt is all cats, for his softer side... 8-)



Another creation from J! I think it is called Stained Glass. Beautiful colors! This was a tutorial that we had that about half of us participated in. We have yet to see a few more. I was not a participant due to having tooo many UFOs in my life, but I may make one yet!



AND, our latest addition to our New older home is our new gas Barbeque!! We had steaks last night.... Yum!!! 8-)

Thank you for all the great pictures. I've seen a lot of reference to Disappearing 9 patch quilts. How do you make them?

dear son and I just picked up a cheap gas BBQ for our home this year too... we're still assembling, but I'm looking forward to it being used a little more then the table top habatchi style we've had for years....

It must be lovely to get to see so much eye candy in person. Hope you get to your machine soon, they get cranky when neglected. ;)

Hey Canadian Gail!
Since I don't seem to be able to find your blog or an email address, I guess I have to answer your question here in hopes that you check in. If you go to my post of 2008-May, "On the go with Pfaffy again....." you will find basic instructions on how the blocks are constructed. The number of fabrics, and the play and layout is totally up to you.
Good luck!
