I spent my afternoon and evening with 6 extremely talented quilters.....The Potty Mouth Piecers. My friend Kaaren hosts a retreat every year in her quilting studio. I went over yesterday afternoon and was treated to a quilt show followed by a fabulous dinner!
Let the show begin
Lynne's amazing quilt.
You could really capture the essence of the quilt by looking at the incredible back. Lynne quilted huts and an African mask in the center.
This quilt is for a new little Southern baby named Dixie Pearl. My friend Kaaren, designed, made and quilted this baby quilt. I've watched in grow in stages over the past few weeks.
Mauna just started stitching the borders on this Lone Star.
Kaaren finished her beauty.
This is Shirley's house for the Playtime quilt....gorgeous applique.
Shirley is going to be ready for Easter.
All the strips from one jelly roll were sewn together for this quilt.
Love the black check Mauna selected for the inner border to frame her baskets!
Mauna made this needle case in a class she took from Sue Spargo.
This quilt was hot off the machine. Lynne finished quilting it while I was there. Incredible. Lynne really captured the beauty of the redwoods in her quilt.
A lucky little baby is going to receive this quilt at a baby shower today from Mauna.
Pam is making Baltimore Christmas. This is a labor of love.
More of Pam's beautiful and precise applique....just exquisite.
Kaaren's work in wool. Love the colors and all of her stitching.
Denise Sheehan from A Graceful Stitch was there too. You can see all of Denise's patterns and books HERE. Aren't these quilts amazing from her book A Graceful Garden. Lynne and Denise made them. Denise was working on her newest design. I didn't want to spill the beans, sorry no pictures!
Kaaren's big farmhouse kitchen table was decorated beautifully for Spring. What a treat to spend some time with the Potty Mouth Piecers! (I could tell you the other name they came up for themselves over dinner, but this is a G-rated blog!)
