Heart & Hand Quilting Group – Friends meet on the 3rd Sunday

Mary L. hand appliquing.

The third Sunday of each month is our Heart & Hand quilting group. It is a closed group with close quilting friends from the Central Arkansas Quilters in Conway. We have been going for over 2 years now and it is always a  lot of fun. The Morrilton bunch meets at Margaret’s and we carpool to Conway to the library. We bring whatever we want to work on, handwork, machines, cutting, just whatever. This week I took 2 small quilts to baste/pin to get ready to machine quilt them. Margaret brought fabric to cut to get ready to teach her nieces how to sew and make a quilt. She, also, showed her finished quilt from one piece of fabric.   Mary L. brought her hand applique. Dee Ett brought her machine and showed a new purse she had just made. Ann was working on her machine. Pam was making surprises for quilt camp, Mary P. was machine appliquing. And Barbara showed us a couple of things and then worked on her projects. Joan came in from her kid’s house in Little Rock. She helped me pin my last quilt. The day went by fast as usual. We got a lot done and had a great time.

    Great looking stuff Jim. Why don’t you get in a picture or two?

  2. I am trying to start a small group here at my home. It looks like you all have tons of fun and I am excited to share in a group like that too! Any pointers?

      Start smal with selected friends……. Then add. Remember one bad apple spoils the whole bunch. That happened to my Mama 20 years ago and she is still dealing with someone she doesn’t care for.. And have enough room and tables for machines, and power strips………….
