A Heartfelt Photo

I got the best thing in the mail today. A fun group of quilting friends in northern Utah have been working on one of my designs together. they sent me a photo of the whole group with their quilts!

Here are the ladies of HEARTFELT QUILT GROUP with "Garden Rows" from my book, Stitched Together. I think this is just great.  They worked on the rows together, then each a quilter added her own finish with borders and bindings.
Renae Hilton, Jeany Campbell, Lisa Rackham, Pat Carver, Kathy Merkley, Ruth Higgins, Kathy Smith, Jana Miller and   Susan Auger of Heartfelt Quilt Group

We did this same quilt at our family retreat last year.   It was a fun project because we worked in groups, each group doing one row 30 times--then we swapped rows and we each added our own sashing strips and borders.

 We had two color choices on the rows.  One in more funky soft colors, and one traditional colorway.

I tell every group I visit to send me a picture of their finished projects and I almost never get one. So this was a real treat to see these quilters and their finished quilts. they really did a great job, don't you think?

So, ladies of the Heartfelt Quilt Group, thanks for sharing with all of us. You did a great job!
