My Friday group meets at the library. There are 3 of us, that meet regularly, and, we have another 5 that comes many times, but, off and on. They are all very talented, and approach quilting differently. That's why I enjoy it so much. I just like to make quilts. I may not have a reason to make one or a plan on what I am going to do with it. I may have several projects going at the same time, and, I tend to bounce around from project to project. I quilt my own quilts on a longarm. I prefer big quilts with an outdated notion that a quilt is for a bed. Linda is more organized, and just likes to make quilts too. She has a limited number going at the same time, and stays more focused until she finishes them. She doesn't do her own quilting and is not afraid of big quilts. She keeps me busy doing her quilting for her.
She and I were part of a swap that made these uneven 9 patches.

Chris still works, and joins us as often as she can. She makes smaller quilts and donates many of them. She quilts some of her own quilting on a domestic machine. This one, she has asked me to quilt for her.

Shelley makes one quilt at a time, from start to finish. And, she makes them as gifts for specific young people, nieces and nephews. And sometimes, she doesn't have a project to start. She makes lap size, and quilts them herself on a domestic machine. She doesn't make quilts at home, but just in a group.

This is my version of circa 1880, which is not nearly as far along as Linda's, but, it's a start. I am glad Linda and Sue started before me, as, they have worked out the kinks, and been very helpful. I am not working on this at home, yet. It is a project I am saving for group.

Last week, I mentioned that I needed to clean my cutting table, and I did. But, the piles have already begun. haha
