Popsicle Fun!

The pouring rain ... the cool temperatures (high of 50 degrees) ... didn't stop the summer fun of this group of guild members!  They arrived ready to party!  Most came with precuts, but three brought their stash and used the Accuquilter.
Cece had just picked up her Montana Cartwheel quilt from the long arm quilter and brought it for show and tell.  It was so inspirational for us to see hers nearly finished!  The piecing is beautiful ... the colors are stunning ... and Sheryl's quilting embellishes it perfectly!  As you might recall ... this was a class taught by Peggy Gelbrich during our spring retreat.  Thanks Cece for sharing it with us!
Kelsey brought in a jelly roll project that she designed and began this winter.  It was made using two jelly rolls and a preprinted panel.  It is so inspiring to watch the next generation of quilter's grow and create.

We even had two members participate from a distance ... they were at a cabin, on an island, here in the sound ... here are their popsicles ...

We visited ... snacked ... admired each other's fabrics ... sewed ... rotary cut ... giggled ... a few even got as far as getting their units pieced and auditioned them ...

If you were unable to make the party and would like the pattern, two are still available for sale.  Contact Terri at 5581 to purchase.

A huge thanks to Roseann of Rosebud's Cottage!  Without her quick thinking and proactive efforts this party would not have been possible!  We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon because of her!
