November quiltmeeting

This was our quilds lasts quiltmeeting this year and as usual we had a very lovely time together. I have told you earlier about the ufo challenge we had in our group. We entered our ufo's in august and this was the deadline for finishing them. I had entered three ufo's. Only one is finished. Mine is the one number two hanging on the wall (from left). You probably recognize it. My number 2 ufo "Say it with flowers" is almost finished. And number three ufo, the easter table cloth....well it is still long time until easter. One lucky winner was drawn, and she received a lovely book. And it was not me.

Below some pictures from the finished ufo's

Someone showed a beautiful table runner. Perfect for advent I think.
And a christmas tree skirt. I notice the american patterns all have a hole in the middle. But we make them withoug holes. We just lay them under the christmas tree foot. I ought to make a new christmas tree skirt, but ............ it is only three weeks to christmas.

Some years ago we had a ninepatch swap. These two ladies was in the same group and therefor received similar ninepatches. And out of the swap we were supposed to make a quilt. Look how different they are. I was in the same group and mine looks so different. Another ufo I have to finish. It is pieced togehter, just have to baste and quilt it. It is fun to mention that we were inspired by Mc Calls magazine when we started this swap. Mc Calls had several quilts made from nine patches and the challenged quilt groups to start a swap. When we showed all the quilts together group by group we took photos and send them to Mc Call. And guess what ......The photo of my group came in the magazine. So both me and my mother have been in Mc Calls :) I will find my ninepatch later this weekend and show it to you. This is my friend Elisabeth with her georgious quilt inspired from Kaffe Fassette.

Neat, I love that orange & rapsberry quilt. (both the pattern & the colors!) I have a stack of similar colors waiting for me to start working with them!

I think I am going to do that log cabin/court house steps pattern very scrappy - LATER... (in my mind that for me is a pensioners quilt - when I can't afford to buy fabric, I have a few of those patterns brewing in my mind!)

They are all so beautiful -- a great way to be inspired to finish UFO's. I always come away from meetings like yours refeshed, with new ideas and ready to get to work

Look at the all the wonderful things that you have shown from your meeting. Hard to pick a a a favorite there. Lots of small projects in the UFO bins and some done just in time for the holidays. The nine patches looks so pretty too.

I have that McCalls issue and love it! I have a WISP (as you call it!) of one of those quilts. Hopefully I will show it one day. Love your old fashioned cards. So cute!
