January 2016 meeting

A new year! We didn't have a program this month but several of our members talked about and discussed all the different things our group does for others, community service quilts, heart pillows, Quilts of Valor and the church quilt.   We try to do programs each year on these.  Next month, we will be making heart pillows for breast cancer patients.  Last year we made and donated around 180-190 pillows.   Glenda passed out a pattern for the heart pillows.  It takes about 1/2 yard of fabric for the pillow.  Please sew them up and bring them to the meeting to stuff and finish.  If you want to finish them before the meeting, please feel free to do that too.  

Here are some community service quilts from Diane.

Here's a quilt of Valor quilt by Lori.

Deanna made this from 2 1/2" strips.  This is a quilt made from the strip club at the Watt A Find Quilt Shop.

This is Linda's version of the above heart quilt.  This is for her sister Rose.  Almost all of the fabric has roses in it.

Here's another one of Linda's quilts, the Tartus (Dr. Who) quilt.

Here's my quilt top I made from a workshop I went to a few weeks ago.  This is the carpenter star quilt. Yes, I had a mistake on it and it has been fixed....Thanks, Diana for pointing it out to me...I really appreciate you telling me.  I would have hated to quilt this and see the mistake after it was quilted..

this is going to be a baby sheet for Jeanette's new grandson.

Glenda made this cute make up bag.

Here's a cute little wall hanging.

Here's a community service quilt.

Here's a floating 4 patch quilt.  We swapped blocks for this one...

Here's an antique quilt top a friend of hers gave her. 

Here's a T-shirt quilt she made for a friend.

Ok, that's it for this month.  Next month, we will be working on heart pillows.  Go ahead and sew up your pillows and they can be stuffed and finished at the meeting.  Have a good month and happy stitching.
