An example of quilt night in Shepherd Montana

Yes we have wine and a few snacks, but on occassion we get a couple of things done!

A small group of us country bumpkins get together and talk about what we should make, when we should make it and a little show and tell.

We've been working on our mystery quilts, nearly done I think.  But for some of you who wonder if we really work at all, here are a few examples.

Quilting in Shepherd Montana





This quilt was a quick one we did when Kathy found out one of her daughters was getting married in the very near future.  We didn't make it in time for the wedding, but it was completed within a month of the ceremony!









Quilting for Soldiers





This next quilt was put together by 2 of the longer quilt people of this group.  It's designed to be "cot sized" and the plan is to send it to or with a soldier.  We may make more of these.


















something she found in her stash









One of our more serious quilters is kinda on the "over the top" side.  This was made from some goof off pieces she found in her stash while she was "organizing"
















Made In Montana






You just can't stop her!  She can make 6 quilts to my one!  She even teaches us a thing or 2 when we have our "quilt nights".  But I can drink more wine than she can!

It's great to get together with people you like on a regular basis. And it's okay if you each have different exceptional skills, LOL.

Wanda:  What absolutely beautiful quilts you folks make.  I like them all... but I prefer the last of the four.  I really like those colors... I find them much more peaceful.  At this time in my life... I need all the peace I can get... LOL.  By the way... I have just subscribed to your blog.  Take care...

Wanda - What gorgeous quilts!  When my children (now grown) were small they went to a small community elementary school.  Several times as a present to someone very special to the school each family made a quilt square which was then put together into a large quilt to present to the person for them to remember their time at Free Union Country School.  These were definately something to be cherished.

Thanks Vickie- I'm just thankful to be surrounded by fun people.

Karen Anne- Karen is the name of the gal that made the quilt you like!  She's much more traditional than I, I'm a bit of a wild woman.

Pam- My Son won a quilt made by the high school home ec teacher, he was thrilled, and all of the other kids were jealous!

Hi Cheryl, I think there should be a wine with a quilt on the label, can I copyright that?

Your group's quilts are gorgeous, Wanda!  Do most of you hand or machine quilt?

Hi Dianne, Thanks for the nice compliment!  We are sewing machine junkies and then we hire out to have the big ones quilted on a long arm.  We are all strapped for time, but highly productive (in our minds at least)
