Lots of pix today!

We had a great time at UFO Saturday yesterday. The 2 new beginners came to make up for next week's class, and they seemed to have a good time chatting with everyone and got lots done as well.
Everyone else worked on projects they had started in other classes. They all got a lot done...it always goes faster with friends and snacks!De has been coming to quilt classes for about 4 years and does a wonderful job. She will soon be moving to MO so is trying to get things caught up and finished. She worked on getting the backs sewn together for 4 quilts yesterday, and then started working on this one.
Quilting sisters Dianne and Diana were busy all day sewing and chatting. They had a great time. It is fun to see the friendships made among these ladies who met in my classes.
Janet is one of the beginners, isn't her Christmas Double 4-patch going to be wonderful? There were complications with next week's class so we held it during UFO day....they are both doing a great job!
Kaye is the other beginner, she chose rich oriental fabrics for her quilt. It will be gorgeous. I forgot to take a pic of her blocks laid out!

Mary started this a long time ago...this was one of my most popular quilt classes, the Hidden Star Quilt... I think because we made it scrappy.
This is the Potato Chip quilt that April started awhile back in class. This class was very popular too, and another scrappy quilt, which should tell me something about people and quilts...lol I love the colors that she used. There are signatures in the border that they collected during a wedding shower, so this will go to the happy couple soon.
Diana started this Lemoyne Star Stack n Whack last year and has been very unhappy with it, she has brought it to at least 3 other UFO days...She got the blocks done yesterday and started working on her sashings. She is doing the sashings differently than I did, don't ya love it? She is very happy to be finishing it.

De worked on her Kaleidoscope Blitz (you can see mine in the background) when she finished sewing backs together. It is looking great!Dianne worked on her K Blitz all day and isn't it gorgeous? She was worried about her colors, but it looks like sherbet or candy canes in person.

Monica was here too but I didn't get a picture of her before she left. She worked on her Lotus Blossom Table Runner. She needed to refresh in her mind how to paper piece and then she was off and running again. Hopefully she will bring it in and show me when it is finished.

I need to work on the SunnyFlowers runner pattern for next week's class, as it isn't finished yet...oops! So much going on, but I feel like I am getting caught up a bit now. Have a great weekend!
