Quilt tops to date

Good Mornin blog readers,
It looks like it is going to be a sunny day here in M-town.
I counted up my completed pieced tops today and have 4 completed tops.

Here is True Blue with borders on. I started this one last spring.

I started this one in January 2010. It went together pretty fast.

This next one is from crazy mom's blog site. She did it in orange.

April 6th Quilt meeting.

What a fantastic turn out we had last night at quilt group. 30 ladies came as well as our speakers from the Altoona Quilt Guild. The AQG ladies shared a lot of information on how to get our Marshalltown Guild up and running.
What a thrill it is to be at the beginning of a new group starting, And with so much talent now and to come.
This is definately not a one-man (woman) job though and I am praying that many will step forward to help really get this group established.
So my friends in blog-land, Pray for us. I appreciate all your prayers.
I better get to sewing/quilting, we are only going to show finished projects and most of mine are only half done. :) That is good incentive to get going.
Thanks for stopping by.
