Quiltworks First Friday

First Friday at Quiltworks was cancelled this month for the first time but it is nice the quilts hang for a whole month. This month featured quilter was Anne of Cottons N Wool
She does gorgeous work!! Nothing like seeing them in person to get your creativity going.











The group quilts were by the Fiber Chix and couldn't be more different than Anne's.


It was hard to tell what was the quilting and what was the fabric. Looks like a lot of work.

This one was my favorite of the juicy fruit challenge.

I'm leaving town for a few days. My dad was hospitalized and now has been moved to a nursing home. He is failing fast.  If he makes it he will be 89 mid- March!

Love to you all!

Be sure to add your MidWinter Blues HERE, if you haven't. And if you haven't seen them you are missing out!!

  5. Once again you inform and inspire me. I was not familiar with Anne's work and will be on the hunt for it. I hope your Dad improves. It is very hard isn't it to watch them fail. My Mom just turned 89 on 2/8 and while definitely slowing down she's doing fairly well. There are definitely health challenges but so far so good. You Dad and family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    Our aging parents -- such an important part of our lives. I don't know which is more important--our time with them, or their knowing that we want to be with them.

  27. Hey Lori, What a great collection of quilts! Ann has a great sense of color and the wool just adds to the texture and cozy feeling to her quilts. And I (of course) love the bold colors of the Juicy fruit challenge. The star quilt layout was particularly nice! cheers, CW
