We were so thrilled to have Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts come to our quilt guild this week! She brought a huge pile of quilts that she has designed, pieced and quilted. It was wonderful to see these quilts in real life that I had seen on the computer screen. Here are the guild members getting up close to see how Lorna makes her quilts.
Here's Lorna with her adorable Dog Gone Cute projects. She hosted a quiltalong last year to make these puppies, and the pattern is still free on her blog - click here to check it out.
For sure I'll be making at least one pillow for my granddog for Christmas!
The room was filled with Lorna's adorable creatures, and very excited quilters itching to learn how to sew these projects. She promised to come back to our guild next year and teach us some of her techniques.
I really wanted to participate in Lorna's Elephant Parade quiltalong last year but I didn't have time then. But seeing the quilt last night, my friend Sandy and I both decided that we are going to make it now. Sandy had already purchased the fabric for her version but hadn't started it yet! Now's the time!
Here we are with Lorna.
That's Lisa of Sunlight in Winter quilts on the left, Lorna in the middle and me on the right. I'm not really that short... I'm standing one step lower on the stage. Thanks to Scott for taking this fun photo for us!
Blogland is a wonderful place, but it's so fun to meet our quilting friends in real life too!
