Do you like angels?

If you do, make sure to go over to Vikki's blog, Sew Useful Designs, and download the first 2 blocks in her newest free stitchery BOM, Angels Playing Happily.  It consists of two sweet angel stitchery blocks, three verse blocks, and instructions to create an angelic wall-hanging – complete with wings!  Plus, you can still dowload another free angel stitchery she has on her site.   Great for upcoming holiday gifts.

The girls from Quilt Club have been stitching up a storm since we got back from our GTG quilting retreat in July.  One of the ladies there demo'd the 1600 Jelly Roll Strip Quilt, and since then, our group has been cutting strips and sewing jelly roll quilts like crazy.

Here are some of their newest quilts:

Bonnie's 1600 Chicken quilt
Diane's 1600 Pumpkin quilt

Donna's 1600 Butterfly quilt

Bonnie has been really busy this summer.  She's made several other quilts and this darling tablerunner.

Her sister, Donna W, has been just as busy, too, making quilts for her family.  She finished this beautiful, appliqued, woodland quilt for her grandson, plus another BOM from last year, and the tops of 4 tablerunners.

Our other Donna, Donna G, finished a darling pumpkin wallhanging for Fall.  Isn't it cute?

I have done a few things this year beyond all the block swaps I do.  My friend Carol L, who is a wonderful, compassionate, nurse at one of our local hospitals, has a new baby grandson this year.  The nursery theme was elephants in blue, tan, white, and green from one of those expensive baby shops.  I found a darling elephant pattern at Sindi's Fat Cat Patterns and used that to make baby Ethan his own elephant quilt.  I had so much fun putting this one together.  And Sindi's designs are so cute, they make wonderful quilts.  Here is a picture of it finally all done.

Over at the Quilt 'N Needle Group, we did a Summer Mug Mat Swap. Our theme was to suggest what summer means. Of course I chose ice cream--was there any question in your mind? I found some really cute ice cream fabric and made this for Tricia.

At my Happyandscrappy Group we're still doing Happy Blocks and My Favorite Blocks, plus we did a Red/White/Blue Swap for the 4th of July.  Right now we're in the middle of a Kona Solids Swap.  Sorry if you've seen some of these before, but I don't remember posting them.
