Cobbler show and tell

we got alot done last night, i even left early 11pm cuz had to get the fur-babes all settled for the night. not sure what time the gals finished up for the night. When i got there at 6 a few early birds were working on one of auntie Pats jean quilts.. so here are a few pictures from our night!
never a lack of food.. pizza, salad, wonderful refried bean/chicken dip, chips
brownies.. and wonderful rolls that Carol worked really hard on! 
Auntie Mary and Auntie Pat make quilts for the graduates
in the family! this is for my late sisters son Ethan who graduates this year! 
Auntie Mary made the quilt top and Auntie Pat i believe
will finish it off. i think they switch every year. Jana and I
even got one when we graduated so they have been doing this for years!
Sister Jana showed us the border she sewed on her
paper pieced quilt!
Worken hard on another one of Pats quilts... 
Carol F made this for a nephews little one!
Time for show/tell and a food break!
Of course Carol F had some wool applique to show us!!

Auntie Mary is almost done with her applique blocks! 
Mary also made this table mat, she put that pot holder
stuff in the middle and will use it on her table for
hot foods! great pattern and fabrics!
Carol P made this for her niece who graduates, also
great pattern and fabrics!! I think she had said she got
the fabrics at Country Threads. ( love that shop, and gals! )
Carol P also made this a bit ago for a fund raiser
for cancer familys in honor of her late niece!
And this was when i left! so we had a very productive evening!
thanx for being a great hostist with the mostist sister Jana!
Enjoy your day!        jody

  6. What a group of productive & talented women! All the quilts were wonderful. I love the tradition of giving them to family members who are graduating. I am sure it is a treasured gift and probably one of the few possessions they take with them when they leave home. The food looked fantastic, especially those rolls. You are lucky to have such a great group to enjoy time together.
