Attendees Lynn, Kathy W, Deanna, Joanne, Joyce, Susy and Barb.  I think some other members were having fun at Sew Expo.


Susy is the first to put her friendship blocks together (pic) into a quilt top.  The top is beautiful and going in her "to be hand quilted" stack!




Joyce shared her two blocks for the spring potluck drawing (3 sheep stacked and the hat block). 



Barb shared her floral/dragon fly block.  


Kathy and Deanna were both working on their spring blocks.



Joanne showed us some of the beautiful taupe flower blocks she is working on.  Another great project was watch!


Kathy shared her (October Sky) quilt top she made for her son and wife for their 25th anniversary.  It's made from beautiful fall colors with geese, leaves and pieced blocks.  It is very attractive.  She's gathering ideas on how to quilt it .

Susy was working  on her first block for a Di  Ford quilt (sorry no pic).  It is very intricate.  We look forward to seeing the blocks as that project continues.

February 12, 2015

Today was a good day for a meeting! We had quiet a few come and go all day. 


Joyce, Barb, JoAnn, Deanna B, Cil, and Cis enjoying a chat with everyone. 


Barb, JoAnn, Joyce (back to camera), Deanna, Cil, Cis, Shirley (back to camera), Sharon (hidden by), and Kathy H. 



Lynn showed her quilt that she finished last month. This is her design and pattern. This was all hand appliqued and hand quilted.


Barb showed her BOM she's been working on. This one is on the internet.


Kathy H was showing some diapers that her daughter has. They need some repair on the elastic and she was showing how the new elastic has slits for buttons. We were all surprised at how this works.


This is one of the blocks that came in for our March meeting. Spring! Cis made this block and designed the boot. It's really pretty and it's fun to see what everyone is doing for their blocks.


Cil, Cis, Sharon, Kathy H, Shirley and Joyce all busy working on their projects.


Shirley showed off her Baltimore Christmas wall hanging she finished. She put them all together and is now working on the border.


Shirley showed her border she's appliqueing.

A lot of good conversations going around the table. We had a great turn out and looking forward to our next meeting in two weeks.

At this time, I'm still waiting to hear what happened at the meeting, since this blogger was not able to attend.

Our next meeting is February 12, 2014 at Quilter's Junction. We meet on the 2nd and 4th of the month.

We are still working on our "Spring" block for the potluck in March. Rules are as follows:

For our March Potluck, the block rules are as follows:

Theme:                       Spring
Background:               Will be proved after Dec 19's meeting
Colors:                        Spring colors - brights, true colors, or what each person sees as spring.

The background fabric is at the quilt show. Each member is allowed one background fabric. If members make more than one block, they will be charged $1.75 to go back into our drawing money. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next meeting!
