January Show and Tell and Challenge Preview

Lorraine West kicked off the show and tell with this cute litte  table mat.  

Lorraine also finished a project that was supposed to be a challenge entry several years ago when we celebrated the guild's thirtieth anniversary.  This enchanting piece will be available for bids at the silent auction in October.  

Nancy Ellers only had to do the binding on this project to finish it off.  

Another UFO Nancy Ellers finished.

Vinnie Tjhung won this very cool piece from Quilts=Art=Quilts at the Schweinfurth museum.

Nancy Schrader's mother hand pieced and hand quilted this piece during long road trips many years ago.  

Kathy Belluscio also finished a UFO, a wedding gift.

Shirley Lapp made a sewing machine organizer 

A while back Liz Wagner asked for suggestions on how to use vintage Dresden plate  blocks in a quilt, and wanted us all to see what she did.  

Nancy Ellers has been crocheting blocks for blankets to donate. This time she made the whole blanket.

And then Mary and Kathi finally got to see how members interpreted the Architecture theme for this year's challenge.  I couldn't get good pictures of all of them, so this is only a few. As soon as they are hanging in the Richmond Memorial Library where I can get "full frontal" shots, I'll do a special post.

Look how many people lined up to present a challenge entry!!

Mary Kozub created a stained glass window, based on a Frank Lloyd Wright design.

Lori Anderson took a great picture of the M&T building in Buffalo and made it into a quilt.
