March Meeting

We had two guests from the American Cancer Society talk to us about the organization. One of these lovely ladies works with Glenda. They were very excited to get our pillows, the little hearts of hope and the hats.  I think we ended up with 127 heart pillows....

I did the program this month on the Disappearing 4 patch quilt and the Disappearing 9 patch quilts. These are fun and easy to do and use up alot of scraps...

This is one way to set the disappearing 9 patch blocks.

Another setting for the disappearing 9 patch blocks. 

Now for some show and tell from our members...
Jackie made this Blooming 9 Patch quilt as a birthday gift for one of her daughters.

Deanna made this one. I love the chili pepper border on this chili cook-off T shirt quilt.

Another one from Judy B.

Omigosh from Joyce

Miniature Omigosh...Joyce, measure twice, cut once but be sure all the numbers are on your measuring tape!  I loved her story and the quilts look great too.

This is going to be a Block of the Month from Thomas Sewing Center.

This is Helen's Fan Stack and Whack.  Beautiful!

Annalee's Political Tshirt quilt. The borders were great on this one..

This is Sandy's beautiful black, white and red quilt...

Linda B made this beauty.


Martha is working on this one this year. Just Takes Two for 2013 


This is for Sally's great grandchild...I've always heard her say, "this ain't my first rodeo" so this is very appropriate for this new baby. Congrats, Sally!

A quilt for the baby.

Gotta have a pillow to go with the quilt.

I made this pink brick scrap quilt after seeing Sharon's quilt.

Hey, look at this!  This is so easy to make. It looks good with scraps or monochromatic. 
3 1/2" X 6 1/2" bricks and 3 1/2" squares.  That's all there is to it...Easy, peasy.

Here's my 3D Bowtie Quilt. Not pretty but will be useful.

My Michigan Garden Quilt. This was a Thimbleberries pattern from several years ago. It's been hanging in my closet for several years and just got quilted. I love it.

Well, ladies, another great meeting and lots of great projects were shown. Please come see us next month and bring your show and tell too. We want to see what you are working on. Til next time, happy stitching.

February Meeting

Last month passed very quickly for me and I'm still trying to catch up! 
Last month, the demo was done by Martha as we worked on the little hearts called Hearts of Hope.  Please bring your little and big heart pillows to the March meeting as we will have a representative from the Breast Cancer Center at the meeting to take these items.  Thanks for all of your efforts, I hope this has been fun for you...
Here's some Show and Tell from our members:
Glenda made this cute baby quilt.
Essie and Glenda did this one.
Here's a lovely quilt by Deanna

Another one of Deanna's, she's been busy!

Martha and Jackie showing the little quilts they made from the piping class they took at Plum Good Quilting with Sandra and Annette.

Jackie was hurriedly trying to finish this one for her Son-in-law's birthday. Her daughter was visiting with us and she was leaving the next day to go back to Seattle and take it with her!

Great quilt, Jackie!

Irene made this one..

Another one by Irene

She picked up her crochet hook again after a few years and made this shrug.  Too cute!

Ruth and Jessica made these 4 little quilts for community service.  Ruth said she has challenge herself and Jessica to make one each month for community service.     

Ok, get busy and bring your show and tell for the March meeting. Have a great month! Til next time, happy stitching.
