Kathy's Flower Girls

Kathy’s Flower Girls……
This is a group of ladies interested in the “Grandmothers Flower Garden”
Quilt. This is sometimes called English Paper Piecing and is done by hand.
No sewing machine needed. It is made up of hexagons, any size from ¼ inch
To however big you like. If you like hand work, it is rewarding.
Since we had one of the experts at this process in our Quilting Guild, I asked
Kathy and a few other girls if they would like to come over and she would help
Us get started. That was the beginning and we have been meeting monthly
Or close to that ever since. I believe there was 5 of us to begin with and that was
Two and half years ago… time went on, many projects started and some have
Finished their project. Our starting group included myself, (Evie), Joan, Dorothyann,
(who has since moved to Arizonia), Shelia and our leader, Kathy.
And a couple other gals (Barb and Lois) have joined us, we now have six in our group.
We meet at our home usually for lunch and then work on our projects for the
Afternoon……..we welcome anyone who would like to join in…..

Here Kathy, Sheila, Joan, and Dorothyann work on their paper piecing.

Sheila's finished quilt earns a ribbon at the Treasurer's of Tomorrow Quilt Show at Marshfield.
