Those Mesa Ladies/ August

 A lovely day yesterday with
those cute Mesa Ladies.
They really are the nicest of people,
and I feel it's a privilege to 
meet with them each month.
One of my favorite parts is to see what everyone is working on.
 Stephanie (Stuph From Steph)
just finished her amazing Row Along Quilt 
designed by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet.
I love Stephanie's version.
Such beautiful fabrics!
And do you notice how she combined her colors
around in the border?
Wonderful idea!
 When Steph and I both made these rows 
we worked from tutorials on Lori's blog.
The Row Along became so popular
Lori expanded the ideas and
has a new book coming out.
Quilty Fun
can be pre-ordered 
The ladies had  lots of 
Show and Tell this month.
 Peg made a String Quilt
using newspapers as her foundation
for the blocks.
  String Quilt
by Janet
 I fell in love with another quilt
Janet was working on.
 Paris by
Margot Languedoc of The Pattern Basket
 Each block has a cute gathered ruffle that 
is sewn down the center.
 I've been seeing Margot's name around a lot lately.
She is the designer of 
Strawberry Social
that so many are making right now.
(If I had the time, I would love to make this quilt!)
Each month one of the ladies brings lunch
for our group.  
Peg really out did herself!
Such an amazing cook!
Peg runs a catering business
which I highly recommend if you live 
in the Phoenix Metro area.

awesome looking lunch! gosh I wouldn't want to have to provide the whole thing though - I'm not that great of a cook :) I would have to keep it really, really simple LOL
That quilt is something and you could really make a lot of changes row by row to make it your own look.
