My appliqué group

A few months ago I had the opportunity to join a new bee group in my guild. It is a group dedicated to hand appliqué and though we have only been meeting a few months we have really bonded and our twice monthly meetings are something I really look forward to attending. This week we met on Tuesday and I wanted to share a few of my friend's work. First up is this lovely block by Eleanor which she is doing as a block of the month through Stitchin' Heaven.

Next is a lovely block finished by Suzanne. It is part of a wonderful nutcracker quilt designed by Sue Garman.

We met at Glend's home which is filled with her spectacular quilts. I just took one photo of the quilts displayed on this old barn ladder, don't they look great?

Finally I have been busy with the free motion quilting on my appliqué quilt. I just discovered that the deadline for entries for our quilt show has been extended. I am trying hard to see if I can get this done in time!
