Jo's Little Women' Club .....

I do hope that you are keeping dry. Here in wayyyy Upstate it has been quite wet. So much so that many are experiencing flooding. The lake has never been as high as it presently is. We are breaking records! I've been thinking that perhaps I ought to put my pool up and save on the water bill by letting Mother Nature fill it up. Hum.... I wonder how many days it would have to rain to obtain 4,000 gallons? LOL

On a dryer note, I have finally had a few minutes to finish a small quilt I started in February of this year. I am trying very hard to only show you projects that are completely finished and what I mean by that is, machine quilted and binding sewn on!

I do have quite a few hand applique tops done, but not yet machine quilted. In other words, Penelope has a line up of quilts awaiting the operator! ;o) I am slowly catching up from the busy month of April.

Tah dah.....

The pattern is called Keystone Medallion by Jo Morton and it is from the club 9 series.

I have named this quilt Summer's Eve.

Although we are now on club 10, it's never too late to show a finished project from another club! Who doesn't like to see quilts? ;o)

I do enjoy coordinating the Jo's Little women' club at the Shoppe! These small quilts are fun to make and if that wasn't enough, there are a great bunch of ladies that make the meeting pleasurable and interesting.

And...... these small projects become wonderful decorative accent pieces for my home. :D

When it comes to these little projects, I really push the envelop. I will work in colours that are not my usual choices. It is fun to see how it turns out. You'd be amazed at the knowledge you acquire just from pushing the envelop! ;o)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Cheers!

I love the dark shades with the white in the middle, really nice look. We are getting rain, but normal spring showers, so happy for that. We had enough floods last year;)

This quilt is beautiful. Small quilts are easy to hang around in the house.

very nice! oh isn't it hard to have all those quilt tops waiting for quilting. I have a few too, but in reality I like making them! I don't want to stop just to quilt all these tops!
maybe I need to learn balance between piecing and quilting....
something to ponder!

That is one reason why I love making small quilts. You can really break out of the comfort zone.

Sounds like you and Penelope are going to be busy!!

I love the colors in your quilt. Those are my comfort colors.

Hope it dries out soon for you.
