More from quilt group....

 
 
 
Liz and Jennifer shared their Court House Step quilts with us......what a treat.  Finished 1 inch strips...just amazingly beautiful!
 
 



The fabric they chose for the backing was perfectly wonderful..
 

 
Liz, also finished an old Girl Gang quilt designed by Jan Patek.  Many of us made this quilt, changing it to make it our own.  Love the warmth and coziness of both of these quilts.



 
A boy and his dog.....Mia has taken a special interest to little Wyatt.  Loves sharing this pillow with him....will no doubt be a constant companion and protector.....so dear.
 
I want to share these words from a book by Ben Behunin, a local potter.
 
"So slow down.  Unplug from all your distractions.  Walk away from the noise and chaos.  Go to your happy place.  Sit or walk in quiet contemplation.  You will be amazed by how your work will be enhanced by loosening the bow strings for a moment....by taking the time to see, hear, feel, smell, and taste those things in life that matter most"
 
Have a lovely weekend.

  1. The courthouse steps quilt interests me. Love log cabin quilts. The Jan Patek house quilt is wonderful! I like most of Jan's designs. The fabric choices on this version is very good and the stitching well done.
