Community Service Sewing Day!

The Museum Quilt Guild regularly celebrates national Quilting day by having a community Service sewing day.  Members come and work together on our quilted hugs in varying stages of completion.

But first, we enjoy the usual beauty of our show and tell!

Donna Sofokles wasn't able to bring her "Naughty or Nice" quilt to the January meeting for the challenge presentation.  This side is "nice"...

And this side is "naughty"!

Junemae Quternous made a beautiful flower wreath/ table mat.

Mary Ellen Ames quilted this Cabin Rules panel.

Mary Ellen got the paper pieced borders on her "Reflections" quilt since the retreat. 

Kathy Belluscio finished this piece at retreat, using the fabric created in one of our meetings back in 2013, where four members doodled on paper, which was scanned and printed by Red Dog Enterprises. 

Cathy Judkins hasn't been able to sew, but she has been able to cut and fuse!

And use her embroidery machine to make some small things. 

Cathy had taken this Community Service quilt to finish before her restrictions.

Alex Hammon won most of these fabrics in a raffle basket, and used them to make a quilt for a friend.

Vinnie Tjhung decided to prove to everyone she does sew!  These were quilted by Cathy Schmeider.

Pat Gardner finished this scrappy star quilt

Tracy Jachimowicz has been making things for her soon to be grandchild

At retreat Tracy made a couple of these tool covers for a plain bucket. 

She' willing to teach others how.  Stay tuned...

Melanie finally made this project from a kit- a soft scarf with pockets/ mittens

Melanie was also happy to finally finish the piecing of these blocks.  She is not doing any more Y seams, so will find another way to make these blocks into bags.

Melanie made shams to go with the quilt she made for her then boyfriend, now husband.

Nancy Ellers knitted a beautiful blanket to donate.
I couldn't get a picture of the bag Nancy made from a t-shirt.  Ask her about it!

After the meeting, a couple dozen members stayed  to work and enjoy a fabulous lunch!

It was fun to walk around a see the work, and the fun being had!
Mary Kozub and Martha sewed bindings

Shirley Lapp was quilting

Nancy Schrader and her niece were doing jelly roll quilts

Melanie, Mary Ann and Dodie were assembling blocks into tops

Kathi and Tracy were also quilting and finishing

Eileen, Liz, Mary Ellen, Mary Ellen and Ann had fun putting together kits for quilting, etc. 

In April we'll be enjoying a trunk show with Ruth Ann Stilwell.
