Group of New Quilters

My new quilters are making AWESOME progress! We've sewn, unsewn, and resewn, but our little snowmen are turning out so CUTE! Congratulations you guys!
P.S. Notice the nice sharp points on these triangles. This is the VERY FIRST hand piecing (or ANY piecing I should say) done by Libni! Way to go Libni!

Anniversary project ready to quilt

I just had to add a picture to show the progress on the Anniversary quilt. Today I quilted the sashing and 2 of the blocks.
They had a wonderful Anniversary party at their church last night, with a nice dinner as well as lots of cards and presents. Oh how I wish I could have been there with them.

Anniversary quilt

The marking is DONE! I am running late (which is my usual state of affairs!)
This quilt is a small gift for my parents' 60th wedding anniversary!
My first plans were to make a queen sized quilt, but the longer I worked on the blocks, the smaller the quilt became. I had a terrible time with these babies! I have several orphan blocks that just didn't pass the test! I finally made them with larger sized triangles on the edges and used a 12 1/2 inch square to have them all be the same size. It definitely won't pass if quilt police see it, but turned out pretty anyway! NOW on to the quilting!
