November meeting

The November meeting was a lot of fun. We had some great food and some great show and tell.  Next month is our Christmas party and we signed up for what we would bring. If you missed the meeting, please call Ruth or Bev and see what to bring. For those interested, there will be an ornament exchange and drawings for the winter block. Deanna and Karen still have some kits available if you want to make more. Get in touch with either one and they will be happy to get a kit to you...

The program last night was given by  me and Jackie. It was a discussion about how to get your quilt ready for the longarm quilter and what to expect from them. A handout was given out and it you missed the program and want this handout, please let us know. 

Now for some great show and tell....
Jessica's sweet baby quilt.
Here's a little quilt from Deanna

Here's her Elf on the Shelf quilt, she used the Turning Twenty pattern on this one.

Here's the back of the quilt.

Here's her Hexie exchange quilt.

Glenda made this one at retreat for her nephew's girlfriend. The white blocks have letters of the alphabet for sign language. If you click on the picture you can see them a little better.

She made this one with the little 6 1/2" blocks we exchanged a few years ago.

Diana's crocheted scarves...so cute.

Here's a towel she embroidered. She took a class from Thomas Sewing Center.

Here's her wonderful family album quilt.  I think she said this was given to her Mom, she made this with pictures and stories of the grandkids and great grandkids.  What a treasure!

Diana's Mom,  Betty. This is her first quilt.

She made a scissor keeper.
She also made a patriotic bag.

This is Diana's Aunt and Betty's sister, Helen. She made this and the dog decided it belonged to her. I think this was a sample of the larger quilt she was making and she dropped it and the dog grabbed it. At least, that's what I think she said happened.   Great little purple quilt.
She made this bag to keep her big purple quilt in.

She also made this little purse.

Karen and her socks.  So cute.

Karen made this cute Christmas tree quilt

This is Diane's grandson's quilt. Jackie quilted it.

See what you missed?  Ok, get busy and come next month to the Christmas party, bring a dish and bring a Christmas quilt to show and tell. It doesn't matter if we've seen it before or not, there are so many new members, someone surely hasn't seen them!  Have fun and happy holidays.
