Cathy is clutching the quilted envelope I made for her. Several quilters each made an autograph star quilt block and signed their names on the block. Cathy is moving and we wanted her to remember her time spent here in New Mexico. The blocks have a turquoise star on a sand or off white background. Cathy was thrilled!

Mary's Quilt.

Miriam's daughter made this beautiful beaded scissors case for her.

Phoebe's block.

The  quilted envelope I made to put the blocks in.

We each made an applique lady block that we surprised Bobbie with today. Missing from the photo is Cenia (so Mary is holding both her block and Cenia's block), and Phoebe was gone, so Bobbie is holding Phoebe's block. Bobbie was surprised and delighted by all these blocks. I had organized this because Bobbie is so generous sharing her home, her talents and makes us stuff all the time, so I thought she would like something handmade from each of us. Bobbie had admired these appliqued ladies when she first saw them, so I knew that's what we had to make for her.  I made 6 of these ladies for myself and turned them into sewing machine covers. Which I posted on my blog~  Patchouli Moon Studio with permission from Carol of mamacjt, who designed these applique ladies. Everyone had fun making them and they all came out so great! Can't wait to see the beautiful quilt Bobbie will make with them.
