Works of Art

Day 9 of Blogtoberfest.

Our mini quilt group met at the church this morning.  There was lots of show and tell.  I love belonging to this group.  They are all wonderful women who come together to show their work, inspire each other by sharing  patterns and ideas, drink tea and eat goodies and chat, of course.  This is Helen's quilt, made especially for an outdoor enthusiast.

This quilt is called 'Crazy Eights'.  It's made using eight fat quarters.  This one is all done in flannel.  
And this one is a quilt made for Quilts of Valour.  Very Canadian in the red and white.  It was sandwiched this morning so that it can be quilted and returned, finished, to our Guild meeting at the end of the month.

In the afternoon I went over to my DD's school to help out with her art class.  The kids have been working on 'Pop Art'.  A few were finished today.  They did caricatures of themselves.  They used acrylic paint and were required to fill in the entire paper.  I think they did a great job.

The Canadian flag has a perfect design for piecing! Beautiful.
