Here we are!I say 'we' but someone had to operate the camera so I managed to stay out of the frame! Unfortunately lots of members are on holiday this month so we look to be a small group - we usually have many more attending. We'll have to have another group picture later in the year.
Still, we had fun with our news and show and tell around one large table. Here are some of the quilts we shared:
Jean finished her circles quilt from the workshop earlier this month - it's beautiful! She added extra small circles and arranged the half square triangles to make diagonal stripes in the background.
Heather made this stunning landscape inspired by a trip to Scotland. She hasn't been quilting long but produces amazing work. Click on the picture to see her lovely free motion quilting.
Another landscape made by Freda. Doesn't it make you just want to step into the picture?
Joan brought this gorgeous Magnolia applique from a workshop by Claire Tinsley of Hannah's Room.
She also showed us this fantastic miniature sampler quilt:
The blocks are 3" square! We're having a miniature quilt workshop on October 9th. Please contact us if you'd like to come along.
Finally today here's Pam's latest work in progress. Pam has injured her arm and is feeling very frustrated as the quilt is layered and pinned but she can't quilt it until she recovers.
We did talk about Christmas quilts and gifts too - more on that another time!
