January Meeting

In spite of the cold temperatures many of you showed up for our January meeting.  Show and tell was small in quantity, but as usual the quilts were all just lovely!
Marge showed a neat quilt that is sewn by hand, and when you are done it is quilted as well.  A nice project to take with you on the go, or work on in the evenings as you relax in your comfy chair.
Thank you Marge.  I know that some of the ladies are inspired to make one too!
Marge shows how she assembled the Momoe's Star Quilt.

The front of the quilt shows the star like shapes that are formed when the quilt is sewn.  Or, perhaps the petals stand out more when you look at it?

Kathy shows her Dresden plate quilt that she made from her brother- in- law, Jack's neck ties.  She said it is her "Masterpiece".

Kay shows her quilt "Let It Snow".  She designed her quilt lay out, and she also guided her sewing machine to do the embroidery on this quilt.  How lovely!

Deb finished up her Red Work embroidery quilt with all of the cute birds and bird houses.  The star borders frame it all up nicely.

Some time ago Diana had done a demo on this block called Grandma's Attic.  Deb has completed this project using reproduction fabrics.  So nice and cheery!

Susan brought in a nice Santa wool work project.  Just love that sweet polar bear with the wreath around his neck.

Peg made this Chevron quilt for her son.  She used the technique that Sheila had shown us in November for our fast and easy Christmas demo ideas.
As usual it is so inspiring to see the creativity of this group!  Our quilt show in October should be just wonderful with all of the beautiful quilts that you continue to bring in for Show and Tell!
