ongoing projects

Back at the beginning of the year a few of the TTT group decided they'd make a quilt called Vintage Christmas. They asked me if I wanted to join in and I decided I liked the pattern so I'd make one too. The pattern is very traditional; not my usual style. I've been joking that my friends are putting me inside the box when I work on a traditional pattern

We've been meeting once a month and working steadily. At our last meeting 2 of us had the blocks sewn together. I didn't get a photo of mine, but here is Joanne's. (click photos for larger view)

Another project that a lot of the TTT gang is working on is called Monterrey Medallion.

Again, Joanne is the first to get hers pieced.

She liked working on this so much that she's making another one for her daughter.
This is the center for the 2nd one.

I decided to work on this one as well but wanted to have a brighter color palette. This is my center.

My quilting buddies have been working on a few other items. Virginia, who is our resident applique expert, is working on a quilt in conjunction with Karen. Virginia will do all the hand work and Karen will quilt it. I know that having both of them collaborate on a project will result in a spectacular quilt so I'm anxious to see the final product.

Ginny made this attic window quilt for her daughter. She was working on adding some subtle beading to the quilt.

Looks like everyone has been busy, busy, busy and the results are lovely!
