Piecing the LNQ donation quilt

Some of the members of Lake Norman Quilters got together today to start piecing our 2009 donation quilt. This quilt will help pay for our 2009 quilt show.

Many thanks to Liz, Eileen, Michele, Judy, Cathy, Lucinda, Jean, Grace, Alisan, Susan D-L, Mary Jo, Joyce and Cheryl, who worked tirelessly and got a lot done in one day! And to Centre Presbyterian Church for giving us a nice place to work.

Here's Susan D-L piecing nine-patches:

Mary Jo looks like she’s having too much fun:

Eileen helped piece the stars:

Grace and Alisan demonstrate beautiful teamwork cutting long strips for the borders:

Cheryl matches up her pieces before stitching:

Cathy models a lovely boa of strip-pieced units:

Jean was focused on her task:

Liz told us (in no uncertain terms) that she doesn’t “do” triangles, so we put her to work lining up the units to be stitched:
