October 23 Meeting

There was lots of show-and-tell at the last meeting. Dora took home donated fabric and made this pinwheel quilt. An excellent example of bright fabric used well.

She also brought an eye-spy that she did.

In a recent cleaning of our storage room, we unearthed the following block:

Kathy S took them home and came up with this pinwheel quilt. Who knew?

Elsie did two Christmas snippets projects. Oops. This picture is sideways.

Dora's heart quilt. She took this one to MCC, so if you'd like to buy it take yourself off to the thrift store.

First Meet of Year

We had a very productive 1st meeting. Susan's daughter Kelly has been super busy using fabric samples that were donated by a salesperson through Hopscotch. The first two quilts are her doing:

This is what Susan's Christmas project turned out like:

Here's the updated Juarez quilt. Anna added the on-point rail fence block. Kath is going to add another border with yo-yos then it is ready to quilt. We are going to raffle this quilt off with all proceeds going to Juarez, either the orphanage or the next housing project. There is still enough fabric specifically donated for our Juarez cause that we could make 2 or 3 more full sized quilts. So much fun!!

Stay tuned for more updates next week (I hope . . . )
