NFQ's Wednesday fun!

Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the week!  I get to go to NFQ (North Fresno Quilters), and catch up with some of my favorite gals.  They are the helping hands that make my quilts come to life.
 

This little beauty was just put onto the frame this week.  It is marked for prairie stitching.  We all decided that the yellow would show up best.  Work has begun!


Auditioning thread for the roll of tying this quilt.  Actually the green won out!  You go girls.


This handsome quilt is being tied with navy/red ties!  Stack and wack fun.


This dreamy little quilt will be tied with this soft pink thread.  Some tween will fall in love with this simple lap quilt.


This great quilt came off the frame and home with me to bind.  It is prairie stitched and it is one of my favorites.


Everyone is busy.  Making thread decisions, pattern decisions, tying, stitching.


"Happy mail" to me!  Can't wait to figure out which pattern I will use for this bundle of total joy!
