Trying to get things finished

With only a month to go until the quilt show, we are all working hard to get the quilts we entered finished in time!

 Mary Ellen is hand quilting this beautiful hand appliqu├ęd piece as fast as she can!

Kathi is adding stitching to her layered circles.

I don't recall if this is going into the show, but it was inspired by the piece she showed us last month.

We all coveted the pretty bag Kathi got as a gift at her retreat with online friends.

 Chris finished her fish.  The coral pieces she showed us last month look even better now!

Emmy isn't planning to finish her hexies for the show, but don't they look pretty all stacked up in the bin?

Lori is adding some stitching to stabilize her crazy quilt.

Martha brought the pieces she finished at retreat with her online quilting friends.

Mary Lee brought her donation for the raffle basket- a lovely and soft runner woven on a rigid heddle loom.

Mary is doing some fabulous quilting on this piece from a pattern by Laura Heine.
 The flamingo is made as a collage with flowers fussy cut from many fabrics.

It will be a fabulous show, don't you think?
We won't be meeting in October, since it's the day before we have to turn all of this in for the show!
