Golden Gese Doings

The Friday Quilters at The Golden Gese Quilt Shop on 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire met on this very fine Fall day.
I forgot the chocolates; EEEEK! But Sue had made turtles and Maureen had brought in a delicious winter squash dip, so we had a ball!

This, above, is Maureen just finishing marking her quilt with a Frixion pen for quilting on her DSM. The colors are wonderful!
Claire did one of these, too, and hers is so dramatic.

I think that this was Barbara, below, holding up her personally made-up jelly roll of all Civil War reds and indigos. I loved what she chose! She said that she was sure that she used more than the standard 42 strips, but couldn't remember just how many she'd used.

Barbara from Maine worked on a family quilt top that she had made up from her own grandmother's depression era blocks. She designed the setting and needed to work with blocks of different sizes. Didn't she do a spectacular job??? As a tribute to her grandmother, she will hand quilt it.

Beverly, below, was putting together blocks that were a cute printed flannel for a baby quilt, using the same templates that had been used for the batiks class.

Sue, below, used up all her scraps making up a second top from her butterscotch colored batiks.

Everybody helped out with the layouts.

As for me, I was pleased to show my quilted Scrappy Jacob's Ladder that I'm stitching furiously away on the hand hemming of the binding. I sure do have a long way to go!!!

I like this quilt so very much that I may need to do another one, LOL! It was so much fun being there at the quilt shop and I confess to bringing home some of their nice sale corner selections, too.

Happy sewing!

Looks like a pleasant way to spend some quilty time! Lots of lovely projects. I especially like your quilt, and the one Barbara from Maine made using her grandmother's blocks--and the one made with the butterscotch batiks. Yummm!
You made some good fabric finds among the sales--lots of those lovely florals that call to you. : )
