Fun with friends!

Barb of Fun with Barb came over yesterday for a visit. I invited my bee friends to come and join the fun.

Barb brought one my favorite quilts she made for the show and tell. I must say that pictures never do the justice to the quilts. She has designed this quilt herself and hand quilted it to perfection.
If you haven't already, check out her post about this special quilt here.

The hexagon quilt! Something, I can only dream of making!

Her star quilt in progress! It was really nice to see all those blocks in person. Thanks, Barb for spending the day with us..
Speaking of us, Kelly of Pinkadot Quilting was also here. Check out her diary blocks.

It is going to be quite a quilt. wish you all could see those blocks in person too. Her detailing is amazing!

Another one of Kelly's quilts in progress. We got together last month to work on a string quilt project. 

 Christine also brought her string quilt in progress to share. I like her green background!

Here is another one of her clever use of upholstery and home dec fabric samples in a table runner.
I think it looks better on my table!

Terry Kramzar came and did a little show and tell too!
I forgot to take the picture but you can visit her here and take a look at all the art quilts.

Jane came a little later and unfortunately I did not take the pictures of her quilts either.

I shared my latest project. It is an unusual and an evolving project. Hopefully next time I will have some better visuals for you.

Pile of fabrics for the new project
Work in progress!
