Friends Don’t Let Friends Quilt Alone

12 Jan

Since I started learning to quilt four years ago, I’ve discovered my favorite part about it is the socializing. There are times when I haven’t quilted for a whole year and pick it back up just in time to go to the annual Wheatwater Retreat in my hometown. It’s that much fun to hang out with other quilters.

This weekend, two of my friends and I got together to quilt, eat, drink wine, quilt, laugh and quilt. What fun we had! None of us got a huge amount done, but we had a huge amount of fun. We’re looking forward to the next get together and hopefully more quilting friends can join us!

Leslie won the prize for first one with a block done. This is the Wyoming State Block.

Leslie won the prize for first one with a block done! The prize was to hurry up and start on her second block.

Leslie’s Wyoming State Block. Fun Fact: each state has a block!

This is an inverted star block that I did. I need to replace the white and red striped fabric with something darker so you can really get the inverted effect. Got instructions for this block for free on Craftsy.com!

Carmen didn’t do any piecing, but she is working on embroidery pieces for a baby quilt for her new nephew. Each block is a different, hand-embroidered animal and will be adorable when complete.

Now go forth and quilt with friends!

God Bless You & American Agriculture,


Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble…Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. – Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10, 12(b) (NLT)
