It was amazing to see so many people at the January meeting that we ran out of chairs! (I am working on getting us more for next month!) There's so much energy in the guild right now- a wonderful fellowship!!
We got to have TWO show and tell sessions at this meeting!
First was the "regular" show and tell...
Connie then shared an assortment of Community Service quilts that had recently been turned in.
Many thanks to the ladies who hold quilts during show and tell. I know they prefer not to have their faces in the pictures, but Diane kept peeking out from behind hers!
Trudy Kutter showed some old Thimbleberries quilts she had finally finished.
Ann Renica has been making Twin sized quilts for "Sleep in Heavenly Peace" Isn't this one gorgeous?
Mary Beth Letson shared soe baby quilts she had recently finished.
Kathy Belluscio shared some quilts she has made to try and use up scraps.
The one on the left is made using dryer sheets. (So it probably smells nice too!)
Elaine Lemley made this for a Buffalo Bills fan in her life.
This was all made on Elaine's embroidery machine. It's called a "tile" quilt- each piece is a small square she then assembled to complete the picture!
Elaine's sister made this super sweet wall quilt from a precut kit, then gave the pattern to Elaine. She made this while supervising the embroidery machine for the cardinals piece above
Angie Vallett made this for a friend who has Daschunds.
Then we had the reveal of the "I thought I'd Never" challenge entries. This is only a few of them- I couldn't get good pictures of them all, but will make a special post once the display is up at the library.
Cynda Watroba never thought she'd make another quilt using her stash of denim fabrics.
And then, as a bonus- we had a very informative and enjoyable presentation by Marica Birken- a local fiber artists.
