The December meeting

We had a great meeting and lots of show and tell. It was a fun meeting. Here's some of our members with some things they have been working on.
 
 
Cathy B. with her cute animal quilt.  So sweet.
 
 
I think these are all gifts....



 
Some blocks Ruth has been working on.




 
This was the Garland Quilt Guild Raffle quilt that Sally won.  Lucky girl!
 

 
 
A Christmas quilt by Sally.


This is Linda B. Christmas quilt.

 
Rita made about 13 of these table runners. 

 
Diana was busy with Christmas gifts.











 
 
These two are Quilt of Valor quilts that the ladies from Watt a Find have worked on.  Beautiful quilts.

 
The corner stones on this Quilt of Valor were going to be in a U.S. flag but there were mistakes in the stitching so they were donated to shops for Quilt of Valor quilts. I think this is a wonderful idea. 

 
Great Texas quilt!

 
We had some fun times at this meeting. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a wonderful New Year holiday.  I'm looking forward to some great sewing time in the next year.  See you in a few weeks, please bring your show and tell. Until next time, happy stitching.

November meeting

 
Our speaker this month was from the Vogel Alcove. She was very informative.  The Vogel Alcove helps homeless children and families and each child receives a quilt.  Diane made this one and gave to her,
 
 
Also, laying on the table are star blocks for the church quilt...great job, ladies.
 
 
 
 
I did not make this one but I finished it and gave to her.

 
Now for some Show and Tell from our members....
 
 
This one is for Cathy D's  grandchild.  The French Rose pattern...love it.
 
 
Cathy B did this one and it is a Sue Spargo pattern....

 
I did this one. It was a kit made up by the guild and it is for the quilts for kids charity. I'm not sure what charity will get it but I hope a child will like it...

 
 
This is Diana's cute veggie cats quilt. 

 
Here's one that Lori made.
 
She made this out of minky fabric and it's not a quilt, it is a car seat cover...
 

 
The back of the cover.

 
This is another one of her projects.

 
 
Judy's working on boots again!

 
Here's the center star of the project.   Love the colors!
 

 
Linda B. has been busy making quilts for her grandsons. 



 
Here's some Dresden plates she's been working on too.


 
Kim made this for a graduation gift...I love these big hexies and the colors are great.
 
 
 This one is Irene's Round robin all finished. It was hand quilted.  Lovely.
 



 
 
Last but not least, here is a cute project from Sharon H.  
 
Ok, ladies, I hope each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.  Next month, we will have our Christmas party.  If you didn't sign up, please check with Bev to see what still needs to be brought.  Also, don't forget to bring your church block and give to Mary G and your mitten block to give to Diana of Annalee.  Get busy and get some projects finished and bring to show us next month.  Happy stitching and happy Turkey Day!

The October meeting

 
Here's the last installment of the potholders. It was fun to see what everyone came up with each month!
 
 
Here are some mitten blocks. These are the blocks that are the Christmas block raffle this year.  If you haven't done one, it is easy and fun. See Diana or Sandy to get the pattern....

 
Here are some quilts from Sharon....
 
 

 
These two are fleece blankets that Lori's son has made.  If you have any extra fleece, I think she can still use some....
 
 

 
Here are some wonderful blocks Cathy B. has been working on. These are for her new quilt in progress. 
 


 
This red and white lovely is Martha's. Great job, it's a wonderful two color quilt!
 
 
 
Look at what these sweet ladies have been working on!  Isn't is amazing how different each one turned out?
 

Here are a few close-ups of their work.



 
Ok, that's it for this month.  Get busy and bring some more show and tell for November.
 
  Our guest speaker will be ready for some quilts.  Bring any charity quilts you have and give to Diane to present to our guest. 
 
 
Til next time, happy stitching!
