Material Girls Christmas Party

Another great day with my Material Girls.  Today was the day we reveal our annual challenge.  This year it was all about hexagons.  I showed mine a few posts ago, the I Spy quilt I made for my grandson.  Here's what the other girls made.
Neither Diane nor I got good pictures of Kathy M's flowers.

Anna K's top.  Check her blog for a full picture (Annatheartistwithin.blogspot.com)

Diane's M's cute floral strip quilt.  So precious.

Lynn Marie N's wonderful 3-d like blocks.  Love her color arrangement.

Maxine K's flower quilt.

Rita B was kind of sad that she got hexagon confused with octogons but we figured the little areas around the octogons are elongated hexagons.  :)  Happy accident.

Debbie VF's -her quilting is amazing on this. 

Pam L's quilt -oops she did the same thing a few years ago.

Deolinda followed in Pam's footprints and didn't get a challenge in.
The beauty of our challenges are they won't get mad or kick you out of the friendship group if you don't participate.  It's purely voluntary and it was a way for us to challenge ourselves to try something new.

So some of us brought show and tell.
Here's me and my Vintage Moments top.

And my summer basket quilt

Elaine's Vintage Linen top marked and ready for someone else to quilt.  :)

Diane K's quilt for another baby.

Maxine has last years' challenge quilt all basted and ready for quilting.  


Debbie finally finished her Cathedral Window challenge.  This picture does not do it justice.  

Carol took some old jewelry and made this gorgeous tree.  
I think I will be going through my mom's jewelry box when I visit at Christmas.

We have in the past each given little gifts for Christmas.  One of the things I was making these last few weeks were these little giveaways.

Starbuck bottles filled with Nutella Puppy Chow


And then I wrapped each one with a fat quarter.
I came home with lots of great stuff.  I love these ladies.  Here we all are.

In order from the top - Elaine, Me, Pam, Sheila, Rita, Lynn Marie, Barbara B, Deolinda, Anna, Maxine, Debbie, Kathy, Diane and Carol

 We were missing 3 of our girls today.  So Janice, Sue and Adena, - we missed you.  Hope to see you all soon.  Well I'll see Janice on Wednesday, but Sue and Adena, well I might see Adena on Friday at Party Party and I'm going to her house next Sunday for a cookie exchange.  Okay Sue - I hope to see you soon!

Thanks for looking.
