September Show and Tell

We had another lengthy show and tell in September, as many of the members who could not attend the August meeting shared their UFO's in September.  (There are way too many to show.  Hopefully you'll get to see them at the show next year!)

Chris Keuhl

 We also got to enjoy seeing results of the row robins as they were passed back to the original owners.  Everyone seemed to be thrilled with what they got, and were eager to assemble them!

Jelly Roll Race Sewing

Thanks to Alex Hammon, I have some pictures of the fun had by all who stayed to work on jelly roll quilts after the August meeting.  The wonderful light at the nursing home makes it a great place for sewing.

Kathi Everett and Lori Anderson sewing right along

It looks like they were well fed!

Not sure whose feet are peeking out of there?

Nancy is happy it's finished- and so pretty!
Melanie and Mary Anne were happy with the results , and everyone had so much fun, there will probably be another opportunity for those, like me, who had to miss this event.
