January Meeting Highlights

We had a fairly lively bunch for our January meeting. Our crowd thins somewhat in these winter months as many of our friends head south for warmer winds. Here's a sample of some of the hard work our ladies have been up to recently.

Cynthia shows off a super sweet baby quilt mad with her cookies from other projects. It has the sweetest binding. 

Iris was a busy lady before Christmas making full sized quilts for her hubby and kids. This is a 'Carpenter Star' for her carpenter husband.

Cindy made this cozy winter delight - a gift for the best person - herself!


If it weren't for Phyllis, we would have had a fairly lean show and tell this month. 
She shows of a real classic piece here. This is a Kansas Troubles original. It is quilted with chocolate thread and is as cozy as it looks.

Two more for Phyllis ..... 


And a fourth !!!

I love how she calls herself a beginner quilter! This stack n' whack is not for the faint of heart.


Our guild very often gets together and produces different blocks to construct our comfort quilts. Members each make one, two or more blocks. Sometimes we get 10 or 12 back, sometimes 30! This is a shot of a sweet tulip paper pieced block a few of us made. We are short about 5 to make a nice double size quilt so we put the call out to construct a couple more. I can't wait to see the spring beauty we create from these fun blocks!

I hope you can join us for a fun day of sewing. We will meet up next on the first Saturday of February for a UFO day. I only have 9 UnFinished Objects to complete ... maybe I will come by and start something new! ;)
