Silver Thimble Saturday Sewing

Today was our monthly Silver Thimble Quilt Company sewing day in Grayson, GA. What a fun day with lots of laughter, talking, show and tell, birthday celebration and sewing! A group of us (me, Kristie, Cindi, Karin and Gretchen) participated in a fabric swap using Civil War reproduction fabrics. We cut strips to make our version of Patches and Pinwheels from Bonnie Hunter's website. Here we are after or exchange of fabric except for Brenda who sewed with the Friday evening group. The fabrics from this exchange are sensational. This will be another stunning quilt.

We had lots of completed tops for Show-N-Tell. Enjoy this parade of awesome quilts!

Karin's stunning version of Carolina Crossing, a Bonnie Hunter mystery.
Gretchen's festive Mardi Gras version of Bonnie Hunter's Orange Crush mystery quilt.
Gretchen's quilt for her first neice/nephew. This is the first of many from Auntie Gretchen.
I'm not a cat person, but Pat's batik cat quilt from Quiltmaker's Favorites was magnificent.
Kristie's quilt using the Hunter Star Ruler and the Rouenneries fabric line by French General was the quilt I wanted to hide in my bags and take home. This is one gorgeous quilt.
Carla used the Hunter Star Ruler for this festive tablerunner.
Sue's Strawberry Pie for her husband incorporated great fabric even some purchased on a trip to Alaska last Summer.
Sandy's black and tan version of Scrappy Nines was another quilt I wanted to stow-away in my luggage.
Mary Agnes' blue and red version of Scrappy Nines was also a great showing. MA changed the borders from the pattern. How nicely this feature enhanced her quilt.

Thanks Pat and Sir Quilt Dude for a wonderful, fun-filled day! How blessed we are to have you working to build our quilting community!

Thank you for sharing all the pictures - these are some great looking quilts. I have pulled the Patches and Pinwheels quilt pattern for my club to work on as well - I hope they will want to do it.
