Christmas comes this time each year!

The annual holiday party is always a fun meeting- with so many goodies to sample!  This year we had so much food we ran out of table space!  Kudos to anyone who was able to sample everything!! Nope, no pictures of the food on a cart we found, and a chair, or people with their mouths open enjoying the feast. (You're welcome)

But before we ate, we got to enjoy the usual show and tell from our talented members.  
 Since Martha Lorshbaugh (your blog editor) can't show and take pictures at the same time, this is the best I can do to show the new quilt I finally finished for my bed!!!  The nice name is Anna's Stars.

Laurie Kilbury Taylor made this lovely star quilt- quilted on her long arm.  She's available if you need quilting done.

 Ann Renica made this for a neice.  Note there is no orange- at the mom's request.

 Elaine Lemley put the skills she gained in class with Linda M Poole to good use in this piece, inspired by the Woodward Tower.  It's a gift for a friend.

 Chris Kuehl made some holiday coasters/ ornaments to give as small gifts to friends.

 Sandy Shufelt finished a wool felt piece from a class she took last year.  (Sorry, I forgot the name of the instructor)

Sandy made this bag in a "Just Threads" class with Laura Little.

 Connie found this quilt top all pieced with materials to finish it at a thrift store.  She's finishing it for Community Service.

Challenge time!!!  Why do we wait until the last minute to make our challenge quilts?  Be cause January seems so far away in March when the challenge is announced- doesn't it?   It sure creeps up on us fast, though!  
Only 28  days left!
(I tried to add a timer here, but it's time consuming and I have sewing to do!!)
