Today Patti was making a Yellow Brick Road quilt for her 30 year old son. Notice the fabric designs are sock monkeys and bananas. (his choice). How fun is that!
Barbara worked on 12 pink retro aprons for her grand daughters. Yes, 12! I guess Barbara is making sure that every grand daughter gets treated equally. I loved the jumbo ric rac that runs along the bottom of the aprons.
Doris loves to knit, so today she brought a sweater she has been working on for.....hmmm... how many months now? I'd better not tease her too much, because in between she has been knitting scarves as a donation for the Special Olympics. Doris is always thinking of others and service is part of her every day life.
Nancy C. brought a Kaffe quilt to work on and I'm so jealous! This is a pattern I have pegged to make and is on my stack of projects. Look at these beautiful fabrics.
Nancy had the best idea for a portable design wall. She purchased an inexpensive $5 flannel backed vinyl table cloth, and hung it up against the chalk board. She then put her blocks up, and asked our opinions on placement. It was so much easier to help her with the blocks at eye level rather than on the floor.
Nancy said she throws the table cloth under her kitchen table when the grand kids come to visit. It makes it so much easier to clean up the messes that get thrown on the floor.
The quilt Nancy is making is out of Kaffe Fassett's latest book "Country Garden Quilts".
The pattern is called "Yellow S block quilt".
I have all my fabrics collected to make this quilt. I have a few other projects in the line up to finish first and then I can pull out all my Kaffe fabrics and play and play and play.
