Apron Exchange

The WannaBee’s exchanged aprons last night.  It was fun to see what everyone made!  We pulled names, so each apron was made with that person in mind.  Here are some pictures…

Bee XMas Dinner

Dec14 019 I am so blessed to be part of this Bee.  They have been together for 20 years and adopted me a few years ago.   We had a pincushion exchange and just look at all the creative pincushions!  Click on the picture for a close up.

The one on the left is a squirrel on a ball.  I didn’t get his tail in the shot.  Dec14 016

All the gals are so creative!

December Quilting

Here is a circular Christmas tree skirt.  Customer, Marge M. made this with the wedge ruler.
I saw more hexagons in December...this one was hand-pieced by JoAnne L.  I quilted small arcs around each side of each hexagon and put a star in the very center.  The little black diamonds are quilted too, but you can't see the quilting.

 I am finally piecing something.  This is a patriotic log cabin block.  I saw a quilt with similar blocks at a quilt show a couple years ago and always wanted to make one.  This is my sample block - before cutting and piecing the rest of the blocks.  It is 6" finished and will be made into a table runner... one day.  My first log cabin block ever! 
That's it for now.  I have a new camera and learning how to use it.  I still take blurry pictures.  It's operator error, not the camera.  I need steady hands.  Or a tripod.
