Have yourself a merry....

In December, we come together to celebrate the season, share company and great food! The annual party was well attended, and all went home with smiles and full tummies! (too full for some of us)

With sincerest apologies  to the ladies who brought some really nice work - what follows is the show and tell from the meeting.  I forgot my camera, so had to make do with my phone. 

Elaine Lemley used a McKenna Ryan technique for the background on this, but the Luna moth and moonflowers are her design

Nancy Ellers is still doing a lot of work with fabrics donated to her.

Nancy dipped a toe into the modern quilt waters using striped fabrics for these two tops.

When Nancy can't sleep, she knits, so made these two afghans.

 All of these items will be donated to cancer treatment center.

This quilt will be a gift for Nancy's brother. 

 Joann Flynt showed off this quilt made for her by John Rolle.

 Debbie Vosburg took a class to learn how to make this wool felt tree.

 Carol McNally was given the center panel, then added stars made by guild members for this community service quilt.

 Susie Spicer made this star table mat from a Missouri Star pattern.

 Susie took a class called curves and swerves to make this table runner.

 Then Susie took a class using Quiltsmart panels to make this doable size Double Wedding Ring runner.

 Susie loves the free table, because she finds great stuff like the fabrics she used in this small quilt.

 Elaine Ross was inspired by the hibiscus in her garden to make this quilt for the"up close and personal" challenge in another group. 

 Elaine used a "metatron's cube" to illustrate the theme of "converge" for the NYS quilter's consortium challenge.

 Connie Grimsley is helping a friend make this memorial t-shirt quilt for a friend.

 There were plenty of ties to choose from in her friend's collection, so Connie made this wallhanging as a remembrance.

While she was at it, Connie made a pillow using her stepdad's ties, with a cow in the center for the dairy he owned, as a gift for her mom.

I promise to do better next month when the challenge quilts are due!!!  'Tis the season of naughty or nice, so use those thoughts to make your entry!

Have a happy Christmas, everyone.
