August 5

We met at Dora's today for coffee and show-and-tell.

Dora, Kath, Kathy, Elsie, Dorothy, Tina, Shirley and Lisa were there.

A while back, Dora gave us a class on how to applique. She used flip flops as her example. She made hers into a pot holder.

The last time we met, we made balls and bags. Kathy S really liked them and proceeded to make lots.

Dora made several different sized balls after our last meeting.

This will be a possible day project for us in the future.

We are also considering a day to make aprons.

MCC finds

Dora works in the fabric section of our local MCC. She brings the best finds for us all to look at and to decide what to do with. Some we buy for our own use, some are repaired and put up for sale and yet others are used for quilts that we will sell at the MCC Auction next year.

This was donated to the the thift store already basted.

This didn't come from the thift store, but Tina is going to take on the challenge of putting it together. Some of the blocks are fully made, others are just cut.

Tina's also going to put together a Bow Tie quilt. Blocks, pieces and fabric were found at MCC.
