So how much can 11 quilters accomplish in

THE CENTER MEDALLION
still needs its silver ribbon edge added around the medallion oval...right now its a squoval..thats a square oval...


one day??? Well if you are a member of the WWWQ-Wonderful Women Who Quilt- QUITE alot

we got all the EIGHTEEN blocks sewn together..the skates and stars fused to them.......nd along the way we had a great time...and are all completely wrung out with HOMEWORK to do...more border to piece, thread paint the medallion and add the silver edging to it...hmmm OH buttonhole stitch the skates

The cartoon for the center...when i was tracing the pieces off on the fuseable I forgot to reverse it so now the skater is going in the opposite direction ...oh well....
ILLE and Sharon cutting out the block backgrounds

the center medallion pieced and fused...SUE and KAY having too much fun cutting out the fuseables for the skates and stars

the paper pieced ICICLE border is well underway...its pieced on washaway paper to save time tearing out the paper when we are done and its randomly done...the icicles are all different sized triangles.........they will be straightened across the points to make the outside border



HMMM DO WE need a blue one next or a white one???

Rachel and Connie really need to get to work and quit having fun...no wonder they only got NINE of the icicle strips sewn:> Thats our presser Marsha in the background....she had FEAR of FUSING...we got her over that...
Ille was tickled because she got to use her press to fuse all the blocks...18 blocks fused in less than an hour...

Thank goodness for Madeline!!! We had to send Madeline out for more fuseables...great to have a teenager around who LOVES to drive and go to Walmart because we were just TOO tired to want to go...

Sounds like you had a great time putting this altogether. I think it's beautiful!
