First, and most important: The MARCH meeting will be held at the Genesee County Nursing Home, 278 Bank St, Batavia. More specific information will be in your newsletter.
Second: A HUGE thank you to Connie Grimsley and Ann O'Geen, who have volunteered to be the chairs for our 2014 quilt show!
And now for the pictures! (Isn't that why you visit most of the blogs you read?)
Kathy did some more snow dyeing. First on an apron she found at the second hand store.
Then with better results once she remembered you have to allow the snow to run off using a grate of some kind.
Kathy had sent this photo of her daughter's fiance's daughter to Julie Brandon for printing. Isn't she sweet?
Tracy Jachimowicz made this sweet table runner
Emmy Hartwick.made this holiday log cabin quilt for her husband.
The pocket says "Finished in Better than Perfect!". Terry also mentioned that there is now a quilting group meeting at St James church. The next meeting will be March 3rd, right after services - around noon. Fellow member Kathy Belluscio is also a member of this group.
The Art C Girlz showed the results of a fabric challenge. Mary Kozub provided each member with a fat quarter sized piece of ice dyed fabric to play with.
Susan didn't see anything in hers, so she cut it up and made exotic fish!
Elaine saw stained glass windows in her fabric, and used the opportunity to try thread sketching
Chris Kuehl was preparing for retreat by making a cover/ carrying bag for her iron.
New member Mary Lowe presented this 3-d quilt she made. Below is a close up of the spider she created in the center.
Martha finally found time to turn one of her doodles (zentangles) into a quilt!
Elaine made a lenten banner for her church. They weren't sure she'd have any purple. :-)
Ann Renica- the overachiever- had a blast with a new block she found and her Scrap Therapy squares. All of these will be donated to the ministry Anne works with. (sorry, Anne, I missed the name)
This was an audience participation event. Volunteers were chosen at random and given crowns!
The winners were narrowed to four participants, who were given paper and playthings. Using audience suggestions, the papers were drawn on, colored, glued and otherwise altered.
(the music was fun, too!)
The results will be scanned and Julie will play with them a bit before printing each one out for the participants to play with!
This is a sample of the results from a previous class.
Many thanks to Julie and Val for coming back to see us! Don't forget you can send images to be printed to Julie at Red-Dog Enterprises, Inc.
