Kathi kicked it off by sharing pieces from a recent exchange in her fiberista group.
Nancy Ellers made this jelly roll race top with one of the leftover jelly rolls from the sewing day in August
Nancy also took a pile of squares from the community service stash and pieced them into a small quilt. It reminded her of baseball uniforms, so she added the bat.
Julie Brandon gave steampunk a try and made this little "good bunny gone bad", as well as the walrus figure below.
Shirley Lapp brought some pieces to show how her strip quilt works. Many of us have seen her working on these at retreat. The Missouri Star Quilt Co has a tutorial for this technique here.
Kay Lennon did a round robin with the resurrection parish quilters and this is her finished quilt.
Mary Ellen Casey's finished project from the Wendy Butler Berns class
Mary Ellen made this for a friend to give as a Christmas gift. The hand prints are all the grandchildren in the family.
Susan Rathbun made this as part of the mandala challenge the ArtCGirlz did. She dyed it herself, but the results were not at all what she was trying to do. So, she says, she made lemonade with the lemons she got.
Elaine Ross also finished her "out on a limb" project.
Chris Kuehl's mandala is paper pieced and has just a few sparkles.
Lori Anderson made this as a hostess gift for Thanksgiving dinner.
Lori used Anita Grossman Soloman's "old italian" block in this quilt- a gift for a tall man in her family.
Martha Lorshbaugh also finished her little tree from the class in October.
Martha's mandala uses templates by Jan Krentz and Kaffe Fassett fabric, with some really interesting quilting!
After show and tell we enjoyed a lesson on how quilting and history went together in the civil war era from Shirley Robinson.
The December meeting will be on the 14th. Bring your table setting and a dish to pass.
