Patchwork Friends Quilt Guild


Tonight, we learned English paper piecing. This gorgeous quilt was mostly constructed in the early 30's when the girl was 17. It was later finished by a daughter-in-law and hand quilted.
Another example of English paper piecing on a small quilt.
Large scale English paper piecing--this is more my speed. Maybe I could get it done in this lifetime....

There are some really nice quilts there. I do love Carolyn's Hocus Pocus.
By the way, I almost have the top completed for Swap Meet. I actually have had the blocks sewn together for a long time but I wanted to put borders on. I bought the fabric and then promptly forgot about it. I ran into the project the other day and pulled it out and little by little have been sewing it together. It is lovely.
Oh, and I have Charlotte ready for the quilter. Charlotte is the bow-tie quilt I was working on at last sew day. I decided to put a red border all around the finished product to add some excitement. I got online and found the print I wanted, ordered it and sewed it on. The finished product is delightful.

They're so great! I love quilts. :) One day, I fully intend to learn how to make them myself.

Your group really made some great quilts. I especially love the Hocus Pocus setting with the log cabins.
