April meeting

This month we had a round robin program.  It was great and I hope we have more of these...
Jackie talked to us and showed us how to do the  chenille method on fabric. 

Annalee showed us how to work with hankies to make blocks for quilts. 

Katie talked to us about origami fabric folding.  Lots of fun.

This month was the month we showed our quilts for the polka dot challenge There were seven entries for the challenge and Annalee won with her beautiful circle quilt.

Now for some great show and tell from our members.
Sharon with her wonderful bag.   It's great and she sent out information by email on how to find the fabric. 

This is her beautiful wool quilt.  

Here's Nancy's cute baby quilt.

This one is mine. I found this on Pinterest and I also saw a video by Jenny of Missouri Star quilts for this one. It is called Tumbling Charms. I used two charm packs and yardage for the border from Eleanor Burns. 

Glenda made these two for community service.

Here's Susan's cute butterfly quilt.

Sally's polka dot bargello quilt.

Another great one from Sally.

This one is a Christmas jelly roll quilt.

Ok, that's it for this month.  I hope you enjoyed seeing what our members have been working on.  Get busy and bring more show and tell for next month, until then, happy stitching.

Here's a great boot and star quilt! Judy B made this one and it is a Raffle Quilt for her church. She will have tickets to sell next month...Beautiful quilt.

Here's Joyce's beautiful quilt

Here's one of Martha's that she did a swap on.  She is doing another swap soon...

This one is her quilt for the Polka Dot challenge for April

This is one she took a class or workshop on for Orphan Blocks.  You put all your orphan's together and make a quilt out of them.  I think this one is the back of the first one that she did.

This one was done by Sharon H.  She says this one can be done by beginner quilters.  This is a Pineapple quilt and the book that she used is called Trash to Treasure Pineapple Quilts by Gyleen Fitzgerald. 
And last but not least, here is our beautiful star quilt for the church. This turned out great!  I think the church is going to love this one.  Good job ladies!
Ok, see you in April and until then, happy stitching!
