February Meeting Packed
Carol started out the February business meeting portion of the night with her theme ugly -to- Beautiful. Which is really a wrong title for this month as she took a beautiful picture that Audrey P. had painted and made it even more beautiful with the framing. This is a wonderful keep sake of rememberance of a very talented member. She is truly missed for many reasons.
Show 'n Tell started out with Frances B. showing off this lovely quilt below.
Frances is so talented that even the backs of her quilts are gorgeous.
Geri brought in a lovely baby quilt to share with us all. Remember, you can click on any picture to have them enlarge for better viewing.
Last month Susie demonstrated the crazy quilt method to the ladies that come at 6:00 pm for the embroidery - Jane put what she learned to great use and made this darling quilt. Ask Jane what she learned from constructing her four blocks.
New member Teresa had a very handsome table runner to show us.
Deb made this darling little throw - I think she said from left over strips.
Erlene has been at it again helping to finish quilts for people. This is one big and heavy quilt, Thanks so ever much to Cindy for helping everyone show off their items. And thank you from all of us Cindy - makes our viewing pleasure even more.
Marilyn did it again - another UFO. We have to tease her - this one was 5 years in the making and Marilyn does handle the UFO lists for all of us. Great inspiration Marilyn - thank you.
Karen bought this Jenny Bryer pattern at last years September meeting where we had quilt shops around our area here for us to have a great night of shopping. Wow! And it is hand quilted also.
2015 BOM - Birthday Flower of the Month
We are fortunate to have a board that we can display everyone's BOM blocks on. The March pattern is for the Daffodil.
Carol B finished her Jan & Feb flowers with coloring and machine free motion embroidering. Stunning!
Juanita is also off to a great start. Forgive Feb.'s - it is still in the works. Love the bright colors.
Virginia got hers colored, but she is still in the planning mode and not sure how she will finish them.
Sara has such dainty stitches with her embroidery.
Jane had Jan. done and brought in her sample practice piece where she had tried different color crayons and pencils to see which way she wanted to go. Thank you for sharing Jane.
Deb O. has some great contrast in her blocks.
Susie is working diligently on using different fabrics in her backgrounds. That is a goal that she has set for herself to get out of her box.
Jeanette is always telling us that she doesn't do as well as others - poosh! These are gorgeous.
Dixie is doing a great job. She learned that she could have worked on hers while coming home the day before, course that was from a granddaughter who hasn't started hers yet. Right?
Deb M. is also off to a great start.
It was so surprising of all the ways that people are deciding to do this years BOM. Looking forward to seeing what they all look like as we go on and especially when they are finished.
