The Nellies met last Wednesday and Vickie tried her very best to teach us the art of paper piecing. Most of us worked diligently to complete our beginners project but a couple of us (Bev and Dolly I'm calling you out) chose to sit and knit and
Helen brought her example/suggestion for our charity quilt project this year - a disappearing 9 patch. What a beautiful example of a simple pattern.
I don't remember whose super cute Christmas project this is. I do know they've been working on it for quite a while and it turned out so nice.
Five of the girls had formed a mini group to work on a row quilt challenge and they brought their completed tops for us to admire. What wonderful quilts these women came up with. This was the first time that they were able to see their own tops since starting the challenge over a year ago so everyone was thrilled and pleased. I have no idea whose quilt is whose or what the rules were so I'm just going to show you the magic.
As you can see most of the Nellies are amazing applique artists!

Until next time,
