Super Summer Picnic

 We had an absolutely perfect day for our picnic at Dewitt Park! I was so busy enjoying it, I forgot to take pictures!  But I did get pictures of our show and tell!

Nancy Ellers made these cute little quilts for nieces and nephews (I think).


Another crocheted blanket to be donated by Nancy

Nancy did the pillowcase finish on this star mat for Shirley Lapp.  So it's sort of a tag-team piece because now Shirley will quilt it.

Donna Tomski pieced this from a kit.  Mary Lowe did the quilting.  

Carol Mc Nally made this for a nephew and his wife who are part of a Star Wars fan group.

Kathy Belluscio made this for Community Service.  

Kathi Everett pieced the hexies using a layer cake she got at our last quilt show.  Mary Lowe quilted it for her.  Kathi usually gives her quilts away, but decided this one's a keeper!

Nancy Schrader wanted to thank whoever left fused flowers on the free table last month, because they rescued her favorite "boho" top.

Ann Renica is still getting back into quilting, and trying to use up some of her stash, by making quilt tops for Community Service to donate to "Sleep in Heavenly Peace"

Mary Ellen Casey didn't care for the fabrics in this charm pack, but with the help of some friends, she found a layout she liked.  

Alex had some orphan block left over from another project, so made them into placemats, with matching napkins for the Silent Auction.

We had a second show and tell of summer themed quilts as well.

Elaine Lemley shared her bee themed table runner....

... and a barn quilt she made before she had a lot of experience.  (she said she'd like to do it again now that she knows what she's doing)

Carol McNally was inspired to dig this old UFO out to share at the picnic.  (maybe she'll cross it off her UFO list now??)

Mary Ellen Casey used a circle making attachment on her machine to add some sparke to this piece she calls "Fourth of July" 

Chris Kuehl used a photo she took of the Linden Mill as her inspiration for this piece.  It was originally going to be an entry in the "architecture" challenge, but- well, you know.
