September Meeting

Kathi Everett started this piece for an online challenge. 
 Show and Tell at the September meeting was longer than usual, and the Silent Auction for next month's Quilt Show received MANY nice pieces afterward!

This piece (left) by Kathi Everett,  features a hand embroidered house and hand stamped poem about an empty house, or empty nest.
Kathi made this photo collage- printed on fabric- in a class with speaker Julie Bandon

This piece, also made at the class, is Kathi's son and his bride at their wedding
