November reminds us to be Thankful

November was our annual Demo Derby.  Since I did one of the demos, I didn't get pictures of any of them.  I'd like to acknowledge Connie Grimsley for her curved piecing ruler demo, Shirley Lapp for her disappearing nine patch demo, Melanie Tubinis for showing a quick and easy gift idea!  I'd also like to thank the ladies who made such kind comments about my own doodling to quilt designs demo.

I must also apologize for the pictures of show and tell. Among the many things I forgot to bring was my camera.  I haven't been able to edit the cell phone pictures I took.  (my computer and I aren't getting along today, as you might guess)
Hopefully you can still appreciate the great work shown this month.

 Nancy Ellers added the pieced border to this donated top to make a quilt she'll donate to the Lipson Center
 Nancy stopped while she was ahead, before there were mistakes in these afghans, also for the Lipson Center

 Mary Kozub admits she had to go buy buttons to make these sweet little ornaments

 Donna Tomski finally finished her Labyrinth quilt, which is most definitely for her! (but she knows who will et it when she's gone)

 Mary Ellen Casey is trying to use up scraps and make gifts at the same time!

 Jenny Grimsley assures us the paints from the Linda Poole classes last month are colorfast, as she learned when she soaked it to remove the stabilizer.

 These blocks were donated  to Community Service.  They made very nice placemats for the Meals on Wheels collection, which has reached its goal, thanks to all of our members' generosity!

 Terry McGuire made this to donate to a basket raffle in another group.

 Terry made this tumbler quilt using a method she said is super easy.

 Terry enjoyed the process of taking disparate bits and pieces to make this Gypsy Wife quilt she plans to donate to father Ivan's migrant cause.

 Frances Zabawa quilted this quilt top, given to her by a friend who found a bunch of unfinished tops when cleaning out a relative's home.

 Nancy Schrader and Mickey Green finished their butterflies from the Linda M Poole classes.

 Linda enjoyed having a mother-daughter duo in her class, and gave them the kit for the acorn wreath, which they worked on together.  Nancy said the better looking leaves are her mother's work.

 Elaine Lemley also finished her butterfly!

 Elaine made this little quilt to fit a space in her son and daughter-in-law's home.

 Elane made this Eleanor Burns "Quilt in a Day" pattern for a soon-to-be grandchild.  She changed a few of the blocks to fit things in her life.

Melanie found this sweet little quilt in an antique store, and couldn't resist it.

Please remember our December meeting will be one week early- on December 14.  Bring your own place setting and a brunch-type dish to pass, and your holiday spirit to enjoy a nice time with friends!
