Applique Artists

Finished quilt top to be donated to the Alzheimer's study project unveiled at the Applique Arts group last night at Your Arts Gallery. 

I love  the different color choices each member made and how bright and cheery it looks with the scrap borders.  The top is now ready to be basted and machine quilted. 

This group is so enthusiastic and brings many years of quilting experience and love of applique to each meeting.  There are a couple of members who are new to the art, but have jumped right in and are doing amazing work.  

The array of original designs recently created and presented at show and tell last night was inspiring - each one unique. 

Pictured in the photo about (clockwise from left):  Liz Sykes, Jean Wickeham, Wendy Osberg, Toots Kellett and Mary Schmidt.  Not pictured:  Arloa Barnabo, Pat Hahn, Jane Nicholson and Jane Zillmer.

The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month, from 6 to 8pm and is free and open to anyone.  For more info about the art gallery see their website:
