Wednesday's Bee meeting

Wednesday was my quilt bee meeting. I remembered to take some pictures of Show and Tell to share with you!
These first four little quilts will be donated to a charity.

A beautiful star quilt. The picture doesn't do anything for it, but up close and personal it is really neat. Check out the corners of the outer border!
Here is another beauty! I really liked this one. Lots of triangles! Again check out the border on this one.
A Christmas table runner. I believe she said it was made from some left over blocks from a previous project. Very cute!
Ohhhh!! This is one gorgeous block! I really like this one. This bear paw is a hand pieced block. There will be more of these in the future. I would like to do this one! For some unknown reason I have been wanting to do a bear paw quilt for the longest time. For one reason or another I just have never gotten around to doing it yet!! One day! :0)
Another gorgeous hand pieced block! This is only one block of about 12 that she brought in to show. This one came from a Fons and Porter magazine. An article about an old quilt which didn't have a pattern for it. She just drew up her own pattern and "Wha-La". A replica of an old quilt!!!! All for herself!!

I am going to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving now, because I may not have a chance to check on blogs during family time. I am very thankful for all the new and special friends I have met since I started this blog! I never knew there were so many wonderful friendly people out there sharing a common hobby, until I started blogging!! I am also very thankful to have friends and family who have stayed by my side through many hardships in my life. The good as well as the bad.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my very special friends, both new and old, and all of my loving family!!!!! :0) (0:

    Now, to these lovely quilts you're sharing. I was happy to see those great little quilts for donation. What a nice group of ladies you share your time with. The strippy star is great and I did notice the corners! I also fell in love with the border treatment on the quilt below. I'm actually finding I like that so much lately - I should use that!!!

    Warmly, *karendianne.
