Show and Tell from the Thursday Night Group

There has been much talk about Fiona's Hexagons and in the mailbox this a.m. courtesy of Lorraine, lucky us get to see a piccie, .
"At the Thursday night Patchwork Group meeting this week, we had three new quilts to enjoy.

Fiona brought along her completed hexagon quilt top which  looked wonderful with its appliqued darker border really setting off the gorgeous flowers.  All that hand stitching and not a stitch in sight!

Jane brought her adorable dresden plate quilt top made with fabulous pastel fabrics.
She has done a tremendous job of all the hand stitched paper pieced dresden plates, with an interesting mix of fabrics.

Lorraine has finished her "shirt" quilt which she has made for a family member undergoing chemo treatment at present.  This quilt has been made from seven old cotton shirts and it has a lovely "worn in comfy" feel to it.  The quilt is for a 40yr. old male, and it seems to appeal to all the men who have seen it so far.  They like it because "it does not seem like a blanket"
Thank you Lorraine for sharing your pics and the doings of the Thursday night girls, all lovely quilts, the pic of your shirt quilt just oozes 'comfort'.  The very best of luck to the recipient, hope he recovers soon.
