Whacky Ladies Quilt Bee
I am really behind in my quilt-related posts! The Whacky Ladies met in Franklinton on March 7. Here is some of the Show-and-Tell that we enjoyed.
This large sampler quilt is by Lori Mann. It's not quilted yet, actually, but isn't it pretty?
Lori also made a tote bag from a Cathedral Window quilt remnant that someone gave her.
Mary had several beautiful items of show-and-tell. First up was this star quilt made from a pattern.
Mary likes to make quilts from large pieces of beautiful fabric to which she adds a border.
She also pieced this floral quilt.
Finally, she brought us a pieced top to see if we liked her sashing fabric.
Sharon had several projects to show. One was a St. Patrick's Day wall quilt that was not quite finished in time for our March quilt bee.
We all had purse envy for the great-looking bag that Sharon made.
The afternoon before the meeting, I took Kasey for a walk along a new section of greenway in Wake Forest that connects with the Neuse River Trail. There is a huge pedestrian bridge over the water.
Standing on the bride affords some great views of the river.
I love seeing the reflections in the water.
I thought that we might run across some deer in this woodsy natural area. Nada...but I found out why on the way home.
All the deer had gone for brunch at this grassy field right next to the Credit Union on Rogers Road!
