Moving right along......

So, it being Sunday I will move on to Friday!?!?!  Another Sit & Sew, our monthly Friday evening and it was awesome!

Great food (I did not make Macaroni & Cheese), great quilting friends and great fun!

We all had no problem admiring Claudette's Piecemaker quilt.....she is doing an absolutely amazing job.......

This quilt demands a closer look, the detail is truly amazing......this is the left side of the trees and the moose, check out the ribbon embroidery...... 

The geese relaxing on the pond, and again the beautiful embroidery!  Notice the bear cubs climbing the tree on the right side....... and the frog sitting at the edge of the pond........
Again - the grogeous embroidery........around the pond - she really got the daisies (anemones) right and it just looks awesome......
We were all in awe of the work Claudette has put in so far and it is just stunning....... 
The flying geese are also very detailed.....and the beading around the sun is wonderful!  Click on the photos to enlarge them and see even more detail..........
After Claudette took down her quilt, up went one of Linda's current projects!  It's a "quilt as you go" done from scraps of 30's fabrics and it is going to be gorgeous!  We all want to do one!  Underneath are the placemats Barb is currently working on........
We all stepped back to admire Rosemary's Underground Railroad Quilt which is now complete except for an outside border she's going to add.....the broders are up on the right side of the quilt.....

I actually started one of these last year (correction I started two, one in each size) and have about 3 blocks done......it's so frustrating, I wonder if I'll ever get back to this project - at the moment it doesn't look like it will be anytime soon.....but I am determined to try!

We were able to leave around midnite when Gillian finished one of her many projects.......wait until you see Saturday's fun!

Happy Quilting!
