Well finally I got it done. I started it at the Ohio Quilter's Retreat this past April. I got the center done there and got the piano keys all cut out. So I got around to finishing it this weekend. I wasn't sure about using the light tan with those darker browns and beautiful pinks, but I do love it. This is a pattern by Sew Unique Creations called Mother & Daughter. I can't wait to see this all quilted out with a dark chocolate binding on it. It was fun to make and very easy to do.
Now to get started on a another little quilt to hang in my sewing room. One of my favorite books is The Civil War Sewing Circle. I'm doing the 1" across hexagon Grandmother's flower garden pattern. Using some civil war reproduction fabrics in browns/blues. I love doing some handwork while "watching" tv with the husband, and this is perfect for just that.

Here is the welcome table. Those goodie bags were filled and they were thrilled with everything inside. I had to donate a bottle of best press as a Thank You to them all for being the awesome ladies they are. And yes that is a quilt I made, I need to put on a border to frame it and quilt it out. Lots of scraps in pink, brown and blues oh creams as well.
Beverly H. won one of the raffle quilts. She loved it and I had fun making it to donate.
Above is Pat Chambers winning a quilt. She and lots of others was put in a drawing for the quilt for donating pillow cases. She looks pretty happy~~~
