Whacky Ladies Show and Tell

It's been a couple of weeks, but I have some pictures to share of the August meeting of the Whacky Ladies Quilt Bee.

Donna made some memory quilts for a customer using a family member's shirts.

And a T-shirt quilt for a middle school principal.

Mary used her favorite pattern to make this Nine-Patch Pizazz quilt featuring bird fabric.

 That's also Mary hiding behind this Strips and Curves quilt that she made at a quilting workshop in Tennessee.

Lori showed off her finished shawl.

 And she also had a couple of spectacular quilts made from Bonnie Hunter mystery patterns.

 Our hostess, Carolyn, showed off her finished wool appliqué table mat.

 And here is a cheerful baby quilt made by Marilyn.  She used the same fabrics as the one she made for the baby's nursery...but this one stays at "Nana's" house.

Fran also had a baby quilt in bright colors, not yet quilted.

We spent the past five days at our mountain cabin.  My brother Jeff and his family from Florida came up to escape the heat. 

We had a family reunion on Thursday with three of my five brothers and my sister all present!

We also have something new on our deck...which I know we will enjoy for years to come!  Two of our little great nieces were among the first to take the plunge (with Mama watching carefully!)

It was a great LONG weekend.  Now we are home for two days, and then off to New York!  Life is good!
