October meeting with Wendy Butler Berns

 October was national speaker month at the Museum Quilt Guild.  We were thrilled to have Wendy Butler Berns come for three days.  Many of us enjoyed one or both of the classes she offered.  But all who attended our regular meeting were treated to a wonderful lecture about the stories behind our quilts, and a great assortment of Wendy's pictorial quilts.

 Some of Wendy's smaller quilts with patterns available.

A group shot of the Friday "Out on a Limb" class at the end of the day.

Our Show and Tell was, as always, worth the price of admission.

Kathi Everett worked with Julie Brandon to print this image she used as a mandala for a group project the ArtCGirlz did in September.
One of Kathi's pieces for a lapidary show RAFA is planning

Kathi found a stone that looked like a brain for this piece, also for the lapidary show.

Nancy Ellers

Nancy has always wanted to do a flannel quilt

Nancy made a bunch of these fabric boxes, which everyone wants to try! (the link is in the newsletter)

And last but not least, some bibs

Melanie Watson's reversible apron
Ann Renica's scrap quilts just keep on coming! (we love 'em!)

So simple, but so beautiful!

Martha also finished her George Siciliano piece, which she calls "Mystic Thistle" (and look, it matches her shirt)

Beth also made a gang of fleece dolls- each cuter than the last!

Debbie Kenney, at Mt Pleasant, does amazing quilting!

Thank you to Kathi and Martha for posting to the Museum Quilt Guild blog. Even though I was at the meeting, I always enjoy seeing everything again . . . and again! I love being part of this diverse, fun and supportive group!
