Our Crescentwood Quilt Night...

Well, I don't have much to show for tonight. Fewer gals than normal, but we had a good time...as per usual! Great bunch! 8-)

Sd made a lovely punch for us to enjoy! Thanks Sd!!! It were delicious! 8-) The gals were busy with their stitchings, but not many ready to get "photographed" yet... Only Dp had a show & tell for us to oogle over, her paper-pieced quilt... Great colors for Fall. Isn't it awesome!? I love the movement in it... Great job Dp...as usual!! 8-)

Myself, I am still plugging away at my applique on my paper-pieced Log Cabin project. I shall post a "new" photo of the quilt-top/flimsy in my sidebar once I have all the applique and stitchery done on it. I avoid bringing my sewing machine if I can... thus, I always have some handwork to bring along on my quilt outings. 8-)

I also brought along the anniversary quilt with some fabric I was thinking of using for the binding. (Was going to use the boarder fabric, but last week the green was discussed as a much better option, but had no more of that green left, thus found what I hoped would be a good substitute.) Anyway, the gals all agreed that it will work fine with the rest of the quilt, so I am going for it tomorrow! Woohoo! 8-)

Thought I would sneak another photo of some of my stash I came across while organizing my closet yesterday... By the way ladies, I am not for hire for your closets! It was a suggestion for me tonight... LOL! 8-) These are my black and whites that I have a plan for, but need to get past more UFOs first, and yes the red plays a part in it. ...?... Just thinking to myself here... I wonder where I put the pattern for this!?! ...?... Always something to hunt around for isn't there!!! LOL! 8-)

I totally love your black and white stash. Every time I fabric shop I try to add to my B&W but I keep using them up. They are wonderful to border multi-colored quilts.

That is a really neat looking paper pieced project DP made. Is it a table topper? I love the bunch of black and white fabrics you have collected. At a quilt shop here, I saw a table runner made in the braid pattern. It was beautiful. It also had red fabric in it.
