Creating With Friends

MaryEllen and Paula organized a quilt retreat I attended.
MaryEllen finished this quilt (no small feat when you are
listening to comments, handing out door prizes and laughing
with your friends all day and night!)

Marsha brought her Dargate Quarter Circles quilt for show and share.  
Isn't it beautiful?  Randi quilted it!
(Randi has also donated yards of quilting for snap game bags...
Her daughter, Marianna, sews them up, and voila' they 
magically appear for the show and sale.  Wow. What a 
wonderful mother daughter team.)
Leila and her church group made all of these sweet, yummy hat and mittens sets 
for students at Maxfield.  I was a little overwhelmed.  
I wanted to start trying them on immediately!
Me?  I was making hotpad tops for the 2010 Nettie and Friends Show and Sale... 
I have a HEAP of colorful strips that continue to call my name year after year 
and make me the point of many comments at every quilt retreat or sewing day! 
Marsha refers to it as my 'haystack of fabric!'
Quilters took time out from their own projects to make 
some game bags and travel bags for the 2010 Nettie and Friends Show and Sale. 
Okay, then, there's Judy.  Quilter extradoniare, who helped everyone with their projects. 
(She's amazing...she taught me a trick or two that weekend.)

An incredible group of funny, creative, big-hearted 
women who are willing to share their time and talents.

Thank you one and all.  Happy Quilting!
