February Show and Tell

You have to get close to see the sun and moon Martha Lorshbaugh quilted into this piece of fabric Ice-dyed by Mary Kozub

Martha made herself a pocket necklace

And a case for her tablet computer

Kathy Belluscio got a lot finished while recovering from knee surgery.

Kathy did some applique

And even some hand quilting!

Mary Elloen Casey finished the project she started in a class with Esterita Austin

Terry McGuire made a "Lasagna" quilt.

Barb Brady has also been busy- a  wool felt runner,

A little snowman quilt,

The sweetest little banner,

Stockings hung by the chimney with care,

And a mini quilt.
Donna Tomski got the binding on her Christmas quilt, which was cozy to sleep under even without the binding!

Ann Renica made a couple of lap quilts.  This was an adaptation of the "Jelly Roll Race" quilt.

Ann's second lap quilt, using fabric she got at the flea market in January.

Elaine Ross tried some "Sashiko" quilting.

Elaine calls this piece, "Really, I went to Bermuda"  (you have to see the fabulous quilting on this one up close, too!)

The back of Elaine's quilt.
