The Donation Quilt is Quilted

The Donation Quilt is back from the longarm quilter.  It is beautiful.  Betty did a wonderful job.  Now I just need to trim it and sew on the binding, which is one of my favorite parts.

Donation to Quilt Show 2019


The Monday Night Divas had a block exchange in 2017.  We made extra blocks to use in a charity quilt and to use in a quilt to donate to the WHQG's 2019 Quilt Show.  This quilt will be our donation to the Show's Tin Can Raffle.

Jar Openers

I have joined the Charity Bee of WHQG.  We are in charge of making the free gifts that will be given to each attendee of the 2019 Show.  In the past, we have given out felt needle holders or totes.  In 2019, we will give a jar opener to each attendee. The Goal is 1000 by the end of the year.  Since I am new to the Bee, I have only completed 40, but around 600-700 have been made so far. There are about 10 members in the Bee, and we make them in lots of 20.


Cotton fabric on top, muslin in middle and rubber shelf liner on back.

Below is a link to the instructions.

HINT:  Place the rubber on the bottom, when topstitching and place a piece of old pattern tissue underneath.  Do not put the tissue all the way to the stitching line and you will not have to tear it out afterward.

Baby Doll Quilt

I had just enough of these fabrics left over to make a baby quilt, so this was my project for the Divas' July Sew-In.

Quilt That I Won For Amanda

The minute I saw this quilt in the Tin Can Raffle at the Tri-County Quilt Show, I knew it had my daughter's name written all over it.  I was right because I won it for her.  She loves it.

I made her a black and white quilt for her high school graduation in 1997, and it has been loved to death for the last 21 years.  It was definitely time for a replacement.


The group that made it, name it "The Moon Quilt".








Love the quilting.
The backing is Grey, tone on tone, Roses.

Dinner and Gift Exchange

The Monday Night Divas Bee met for Dinner at Saltgrass Steakhouse and our annual Gift Exchange.  Getting eleven ladies together during the holidays is difficult, so we opted for January.  Good food and laughter with friends is always time well spent.








These are the gift bags that I gave to each Diva.  
Each one contains a fat quarter, a notebook that I made and a wax fabric marker.
I, also, created the flowers from book pages and spray ink.
