Roebuck Quilt progress

A stitching day today with the ABCs gave me the opportunity to stitch on yet another border to my reproduction Roebuck quilt. I'm loving the process! There are still many borders to be added, as well as applique hexagon flowers (onto the creamy triangles in the photo below).

Scrappy quilts are such a joy to make, and a fabulous chance to use up the scraps in one's stash. So why, I wonder, does my basket of Roebuck fabrics become fuller by the week?????

My friend Wendi (just out of the photo below, wearing white) is just too clever for words. Not only is she making a Roebuck quilt with the rest of us in the monthly class, but she has redesigned it and whipped up her own larger and more intricate version, at the same time! So she will end up with two of these beauties, one for each lucky daughter. Isn't her version just a triumph? It only awaits its applique hexagon flowers to make it complete.

More "Show and Tell" - this time from Robbie. We've watched her hand stitching the applique Hawaiian motifs and hand quilting this deliciously fresh beauty over the months when we've met, and today - Viola! - it is finished.
