Halloween afternoon was spent in the company of some very talented women--the ladies of my Small Scale Quilt Study Group.
This pincushion was from a class offered at The Attic in Mesa, AZ.
Tamami will donate this ornament to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research through a charitable auction held at the Attic. I learned that the technique she used is called hardanger.
Kristine made us all green with envy over her stash of goodies obtained during a shopping spree at Primitive Gatherings. And between working furiously over the last month with all the insurance claims our nationally broadcast hail storm caused, she managed to piece not one, but two broken dishes quilts and a Lori Smith quilt.
Pauline was busy with Schnibbles quilt tops.
Lin's 'Peonies' came back from the quilter...
...and she shared a few other finishes as well.
The silly pumpkins are a Kim Diehl pattern.
Betty has been busy making ornaments, one for each of her children, their spouses and their children.
My favorite is the little lamb for her granddaughter.
Kathy's granddaughter will stay warm and cozy under the quilt Kathy is making for her.
Kathy also finished the applique on her miniature version of 'Orange Peel Quilt' by Kathy Tracy.
Last night we dined on the best fritters made with butternut squash. The recipe can be found in the October 2010 issue of Sunset magazine. I shouldn't share it because of copyright laws, I guess, but I highly recommend it. YUM!
