Hi everyone

This will probalby be my last blog update for 2008. Make sure you check the archives for old postings.

Well we had our first ever Faith Quilters Christmas dinner this past week. Everyone was in attendance including Elaine who cooks for us occasionally, Shannon (Bo's wife and my daughter), Anne who helps me with my fabric sometimes and Joed, Vickie's soon to be worse half (just kidding - we love him). This gave us a chance to sit and fellowship and enjoy each other's company. I think we had a delighful evening and can't imagine anyone went home hungry.

I eagerly await to see what Faith Quilters accomplishes for 2009. We have 2 comfort quilts in the closet ready to go and I am looking forward to many more. We are planning these to be dontated to the Senior Orphan program in Polk County for Christmas 2009.

Be blessed and I wish you all a Happy New Year and a blessed life.

Vickie's November Quilt

Here is Vickie's latest. She and Amy have been busy working on tablecloths and toppers for Amy's baby shower. They designed this quilt to decorate the table for Amy's shower. Shows how lovely just simplicity can be.

Bo - November

Here is Bo's November quilt. He's used a pattern called Turning Twenty. As always his selection of colors for this pattern look very nice. Gives the quilt a nice masculine look.

Kathy's November Quilts

Here are 2 new quilts from Kathy. The first is a comfort quilt she's been working on using a pattern called Scrappy Round the World. As you can see she picked a nice selection of colors so everything is bold and bright.

Her second is one is a braid with small grout lines between the rows. Vickie began one of these a few months back for a charity quilt and I think we liked it so well we're all planning one. Again as you can see Kathy's bold colors just really liven it up and give it that cheerful look.
