Spring Gathering

Stars in the Garden
Yellow Creek Quilt Designs
Primitive Quilts Magazine Spring 2013

Anne finished her hexie--and it is beautiful.  Anne's father is making a frame for this quilt--the hexie's are 1/4"

Carriage House Samplings
A Mind Independent and Free

This photo does not even begin to do this piece of needlework justice.  This is a Carriage House sampler Anne adapted showing her father's genealogy.  The bottom half of the sampler is stitched one over one with her father's genealogy--a true heirloom!  (Am guessing this piece to be approx 4' long)

Samplers NotForgotten
Bird Song

Debby stitched this beautiful piece of needlework.  The colors are vibrant and the wonky flowers just make this piece of needlework all the more interesting.  (Sorry for the upside down photo--I couldn't figure out how to turn it)

Susan finished the quilting on my North and South quilt in time for the gathering--once again, she did a beautiful job--she never disappoints!

The Gatherings are such a special time--friends, good food, beautiful needlework, talk of future projects.


  1. What a wonderful collection of projects. But I have to single out the Stars in the Garden. I have worked with 1/4" hexies (once)--never again!! I am so impressed that she did the whole pattern from that size. Boggles my mind. I can't even finish it in the larger hexies!

  2. Gatherings are always such special times when hanging with like minded friends. Thank you for sharing the assorted projects with us; they are all fabulous.

  3. Such beautiful work! Must be wonderful to get together and share!

  4. all the projects are wonderful and memorable. I love the hexie quilt, I still hope to do one but when? I was making a few here and there but have quit that too. just doesn't see to be enough time and life seems to suck out the fun out my projects lately - Thanks for the inspiration - Mel

  5. The projects from your Gathering were wonderful pieces of art filled with such details.

  6. So much beautiful handwork at the Gathering!

  7. Lovely post thank-you for sharing with us.


  8. Oh my goodness, I just need to learn to quilt, the photos are lovely, love the designs and colors.
