Before I get into the meeting, I would like to talk about the group that met on the last Thursday of the month. It is a day that we call "Play Day". We come together at the civic center and just sew or knit or crochet. Well this past "play day" we had a lesson on foundation piecing from Kathy Doane. She showed us some nice techniques and helped to take the "fear"out of foundation or paper piecing. She also brought in a couple of miniature quilts that she had made that looked very difficult but with the technique that Kathy showed us I feel that I can paper piece a quilt.
|Happy to see Theresa. She caught on right away.|
|Isn't this a cutie?|
|Wow look a finished block.|
|Denise and her applique. Can't wait to see this quilt when it is done.|
Now what you have all been waiting for; These are pictures from the last meeting including some show and tell item, our show and tell time is the best time.
|Helen won the door prize fabric, see how happy she is. We are always happy to get more fabric.|
|Me, modeling the jacket I just finished.|
|Helen shared this little knick knack that says, " blessed are the piecemakers"|
We quilters love stuff like this.
|Helen just got a new great-granddaughter so she has been having a good time making little dresses for her.|
|Helen's sneeky snake quilt.|
|Helen created this beautiful quilt.|
|This quilt is actually pages for a quilted book. But Elizabeth made a quilt instead.|
|Elizabeth's daughter saw a quilt similar to this one on TV so she took a picture of the one on tv asked Elizabeth to make her one. Elizabeth created the pattern and here it is.|
|Mildred shared these needle punched Micky and Minnie she made for her niece.|
Awesome job Mildred.
|This is Carole and she is one of this year's quilt top winner. So we spent time working on her quilt.|
|Oh I forgot to mention that we had pizza.|
|A bolt of batting was divided for cuddle quilts.|
|I think Judith is over worked. Slow down Judith.|
So that is the end to our meeting for March. We always have such a good time. See you at the next meeting.
