Sew Night-----and sirens

I finally made it to sew night. It is so nice to go get something done, visit and sew.  MaryLou won this quilt at our Hospital foundation dinner last week.  What a lucky girl. 

She made this one from a kit.  I really like the medallion and the fabric.

Last month at guild meeting they taught how to make this block.  This is MaryLous.

Claudia was trimming hers up and got it laid out.  I think she said this was her third one with this block.  I really like it.  The blocks were 16 1/2 inches. 

Helen has been making these for her grandchildren each year for Christmas.  She said her oldest grand will have forty of them this year.  She is starting on the greats to.

LaVee made this adorable baby quilt to have on hand.  I remember those little pull toy dogs. 

Here is Becky's sampler from guild.  She said she felt it needed something so look what she did to the corner.

I think it really adds to the character of the quilt. 

Now for the sirens.  We have a fairly quiet little town and while we were setting there, mostly visiting, we could hear the sirens start to wail it go closer and closer and we were thinking what the devil is going on.  It finally dawned on us that today was our state cross country meet.  Our Girls won state and around here any state title deserves a fire truck escort.  They did the same thing for our baseball team a few weeks ago and for our debate team last spring. 


  1. Thank you so much Jan Marie for visiting my blog! I appreciate your kind words and thought I would pop over and visit! Such lovely quilts you have displayed... What a wonderful talent you have been blessed with! Blessings...


  2. I love seeing your groups Show And Tell. I just learned at my guild how to make the same block that Claudia made, and looking forward to giving it a try.
