My Fiber Friends

My stitching group met last night at my house. We try to meet monthly, but sometimes life gets in the way. We each work on our own projects and mostly eat and gab. I finished the binding on a little quilt. Three were knitting, one was doing needle punch and the last person never got around to working, just talking. Most of us worked together, or at least worked for the same company a number of years ago, so that and the love of handwork ties us together. We are called Fiber Friends. How perfect.

Last night, Joyce brought this quilt that she and several others made for a Boy Scout fundraiser. It was designed on EQ by a shop owner. Three people did the piecing and the shop owner did the quilting on her long arm. There are pre-printed panels in the corners showing Scouts doing scout type things. The fabric is from a line of Scout prints. Really well done.

Barb E. brought this lovely needle punch snowman that she framed herself. When we went to the International Quilt Show in Chicago a couple of years ago, Barb found a vendor doing a closeout of needle punch kits. She bought about 8 and she hasn't stopped punching since. She is really fast and loves to do them. She is a new quilter, but has already finished 3 BOM's that are constructed like a pro.
My little quilt is for a Jo Morton club that is meeting tonite. It was fun to make. Can't wait to see which fabrics other chose for this little project.

On the menu was Taco Soup and Strawberry Shortcake.

  1. Love seeing the projects from your group. Your little Jo Morton quilt is really cute. And, I would have been right there with the taco soup and strawberry shortcake. Looks like you had a fun evening.
