March Madness

We had a quiet meeting in March with just a wee bit of show and tell. It's been unusually cold for the past few weeks so I'm sure this next time we will all have lots to show. 

Here is Sherron with a sweet little table runner and a sweet girl looking to help her show it off. Darby is now on the move and with me taking pictures she was tough to wrangle at our meeting.

 Judy has been a busy quilter - not sure if this is a leftover from Christmas 2017 or a head start for 2018. Either way, it is a simple design with great impact.

She made this wonderful quilt for her grandson who is a goalie. I'm sure he is over the moon to have this homemade Bomber quilt. Judy quilted pucks and sticks in the larger squares.

And finished off with a sweet baby quilt

I only have 17 unfinished quilts of my own to do so thought it best to take on some guild projects as well ... we had some community members donate flannels over the years so in our cupboard cleaning, a few of us took some squares home ... I really love how my Lucey made this simple piece really sing. 

Vivian stunned us with this beautiful teal and brown elk throw for her hubby. He popped this panel in her cart one day and asked her to sew it up for him .... five years later and hours 'hunting' for the perfect color match and voila! 

A shot of the back ......

And a sweet pinwheel .....

Lynn made this divine wall hanging for her new baby grandson. It is a design of hers made with Allsion Glass fabric. So modern and yummy. No Winnie the Poo for this cool baby.

Please note a change in a few dates .... we had to move the spring retreat to help accomodate some other church events. It works out a bit better for us in reality as now our friend Wendy from Fabriculous will be coming up to 'play' ... hopefully she will bring some yummies to share and maybe teach us something (jelly roll rug perhaps).

The new dates are April 27 & 28. Usual routine, sew until your back hurts all day Friday. nibble on sweets and crap, then gorge on potluck Friday evening. Sew until Audrey kicks out - repeat Saturday (left overs Saturday - no potluck ... ditto with the sweets).  I can't wait!

There will be a UFO this Saturday as well. Doors open at 9. $10 to join in ... I think I may even mosey on over with a bucket of unfinished objects. See you then!
