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!

The September meeting

The September meeting as our annual meeting to announce the new officers and vote on our budget for the next year.  We also played Left, Right, Center for fat quarters. That was alot of fun. 
Here are the potholders for this month.  Aren't these cute?!
October is our last month to celebrate the potholders and the theme for October is Christmas. Have fun with that! 
Here's some Show and Tell from our members.
This is a quilt I finished this month. I did the top 14 years ago and it was a shop challenge for the quilt shop I was working at.  This has 2000 fabric for the backing. I call this Happy 14. 

This was also from about the same time.  This was a quilt top I did as a sample to show and  teach teenagers to quilt.  I finished this quilt this month too.

This is Thimbleberries fabric and I made it using the Yellow Brick Road pattern.  I call this Green Brick Road. 

This is my One Block Wonder quilt and I call this "The Empress."

Martha has been working on modern quilt blocks and it looks like she's having fun...

Here's two of Sharon's quilts for Covers for Kids.  Good job, Sharon!

This is Judith's beautiful basket quilt.

 Lori did this great quilt of Valor quilt.

Joyce's beautiful butterfly quilt. She's gifting this to her granddaughter. The butterfly blocks were so pretty and fun for our swap. 

Here are some Cover for Kids quilts by Diane.

Great job, Diane!

Here's one of Sue's quilts. She made this from shirts and fabrics she purchased from the thrift store.  Way to go, Sue.

Here's another beauty from Sue.

Here's Sharon's nipple, oh, I mean Nickel quilt....(You had to be at the meeting to get this joke!)

This is Darla's beautiful quilt...
Here's a Christmas quilt that Jackie and the quilters from Royse City Library are raffling off.  Jackie will have raffle tickets for this at the next meeting and this will be your last chance to get these. 

Jackie quilted this monster star for a customer.  It was an old family quilt and the backing was a king size sheet. She really worked hard on this one and it looks great.

Deanna's Civil War Quilt.  This was an exchange a few of us were in on last year.  Let's do more!
