Eye Candy

On the first beautiful spring day we've enjoyed around here, the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild met for its first Sew Day!  Even though the day was spent inside, we had big picture windows letting in the sun and gorgeous colorful quilts to remind us spring is here!

This is Beth's beautiful Bargello quilt.  Her seams are perfect and lay so flat!

This is another quilt Beth is working on for her daughter's school auction.  Can you see the children's art work?  Gorgeous!

This is Cara's quilt for her soon-to-be-born baby girl!  Love those birds and the pinks and browns!

Hope made this fun Easter table runner for her mom.  The fabrics are all way cool batiks she had left over from another quilt project.  Before she left for the day, she had added more eggs and a really cute chick and did most of the quilting.  Too cute!

Jodie worked on her quilt using the Verna squares from Moda's sampler pack.  Don't you just love these soft chocolate browns mixed with the Verna?!?!  

We were all in awe of Kathryn's pink quilt of houses!  This picture really doesn't do justice to the beautiful fabrics and the applique and quilting.  I have a feeling a few of us may try to make one of these ourselves.  So fun and gorgeous!

Michele used National Quilt Day to finish her waverunner!  I love these colors she chose, and the layout is too fun.  Michele also trimmed all her black and white flying geese blocks and did some hand quilting.

I showed you my project yesterday.

Won't you join us next time?  Thanks Jodie for the colorful banner (which isn't showing true in my picture).

Have an amazing day!!
