November 20, 2014

First, I (Lynn Wiltzius) would like to thank Susy for sending me all the information and photos on our meeting today. I was unable to attend.



We had a great turn out today. With everyone working on their own projects and/or the Christmas block for our next meeting in December.



Deanna was working on Connie's block.



She was moving along great. Deanna B is getting caught up on her blocks lately.



Kathy W's newest flower block. She's slowly getting the Hearts and Flower blocks done.



Everyone having a great time.



Log cabin style blocks Sue is working on.




Teri's Christmas block.


A cute crochet thimble cover.


Sharon working on her Snowman for her Christmas block.

Our next meeting is our Christmas Party at Cil's house. It will be December 12, 2014.

BLOCK CHALLENGE FOR DECEMBER

Theme:              Christmas
Background:      12 1/2" unfinished - can do work on 13" square to make it easier to cut to size
Background fabric:   Cream, off white, beige - NOT MUSLIN

Work has to be appliqued, traditional Christmas colors, and anything that goes for Christmas. 

Keep in mind, Christmas has "true" colors. Anyone finishing their block can put their finished work in the "drawer" at the shop. If anyone wants to participate, just do the work and put your name on the block to be in the drawing.

November 13, 2014

We had a full group today! We were moving around to make room for quilters. It was awesome to see a lot of our members. We now have 20 members in our group. Some have been renewing their memberships this month, as they are due.

Tons of show and tell this time too!


Kathy W was showing her bag for her grandson. This is a bag for her grandson's Logo's.


She was telling about how she made it and what it would all be used for.


Teri showed up after a long gap. She told us all her mother had passed away in October. It was good to see her at the meeting after such a long time away. She showed her table "mat" that she is working on.


It's really pretty.


Barb showed her latest project. It's a miniature quilt she was working on.


Susy showed her quilt she's quilting on now. The postage stamp quilt was finished recently and now she's just hand quilting it. She was quilting on it during our meeting.


Sharon showed her quilt top she just finished. (Sorry can't remember the name of this) She liked the two colors over different colors and made it with brown and off white. (Susy is on the left and Sharon on the right)


Kathy W was showing her pot holders she is working on.


She was telling us about the pattern she has.


Kathy W made this block for the block challenge we have going.


Sharon made this block for the block challenge.


Deanna B made this block for Janet's friendship blocks. We haven't seen Janet in awhile, but think she will be thrilled to see this.


Deanna also showed us her current project. She is taking old crochet dollies and putting them on blocks. She's going to make a quilt out of it to hang on the wall in her sewing room. This is a sample of the many blocks she brought in that where done.

Our next meeting is Thursday, November 20, 2014 - because Thanksgiving is on our usual Thursday meeting. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting.

Don't forget - Christmas block challenge is:
