Quilt Along Update

We had our last official quilt along for about six months because a couple of our members are moving to MO next week!  Of course I will still get together with  some of my other friends and sew and quilt throughout the summer with them.  We had a potluck Wednesday, Chipotle style, my favorite!  We had a few ladies not able to come though.

Kayla is teaching our newbie, Holly, how to hand quilt.  All we have left is a couple of rows on these two blocks they are working on, then I will machine quilt the borders because we need to have it finished by this Sunday!
Chrystal has almost finished her granny square top.  She is thinking of adding a border of the blue to make the quilt bigger.
Here is a sample quilt she is working on for her mother.  She does her piecing on her machines but will hand quilt them when she is done.  She is going to embroider the names of her mother's children in one blank square (with birthdays), and the grandchildren in the other blank square.
Abideth is hand quilting her first quilt.  Her grandmother traced hearts all over it onto her quilt for her to hand quilt.
I'll share updates on my what I'm working on for my personal quilts tomorrow!
