Fun Night with Friends

I spent last night with 5 friends who I have been getting together with for years. We had a fun night of sewing & chatting. I actually didn't get much sewing done, but you will be happy to know that I did my share of chatting! I asked them to bring their Ocean Song Quilts. This is Cindy with hers. I took a close-up of her beading, look especially at the mermaid's fin...she has a bead on every scale!
It shimmers!

Debbie and Jo are still working on theirs. I will take more pictures when they are finished. This is one of those projects that we have worked on off and on for about a year and a half.
Connie is in the background working on handquilting a Nelson Brothers banner!

This is mine, with a close-up below.

I took these pictures... you can tell I was focusing on the quilts, so managed to cut off the top of their heads. I don't know if you can really see how beautiful the beadwork is on them. You can tell how everyone framed them a little differently, though, and made them their own.

I am so lucky to have these good friends that share my obsession/love of fabric and quilting.

One more day to get in on the giveaway for the 3 black, white and red fat quarters. Just leave a comment here.

They all look great. It just goes to show that a lot of different ways will work equally good.

Wow! They are all gorgeous!
I've been saving water/sealife/etc fabric for a while. I've been wanting to do something on the order those on a sweatshirt jacket or a throw quilt. I just love what you and your friends how all are the same and yet all different.
I clicked on each picture and to open them individual and enlarge them and the embelishments are just wonderful.

How lucky you girls are to have your special frienship and get togethers to chat and work on your projects!!!

Those pieces are fantastic!
Was the center fabric a panel? I cannot imagine piecing that.
