What a great time I had last week with my quilting friends! We didn't get together this time to quilt, just to sit and catch up with each other. They all came to my place on the coast of Maine and soaked up the sunshine. I had two of my friends pose as models for my "Lovie Lap Quilts".
At the breakfast table Nancy told us about a new easy stack and whack quilt block. She was showing us what to do using napkins as we were lacking fabric.
You use a fairly busy fabric and layer four layers exactly the same on top of each other. Then you cut squares. I used a 3" square. Take that pile of four 3" squares and arrange it they way you would like. Each block comes out totally different. I had to give it a try. I loved the results.
After breakfast we drove over to Land's End on Bailey Island. It's a cute gift shop with a beautiful view. The artist in me just had to take pictures.
Summer doesn't get much better than this, good friends, beautiful place and a little quilting! Hope you are all enjoying your summers!
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job twelve years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
