May Meeting

Show and Tell From May


Angie and Marcia brought quite a few quilts!  These are teacher quilts for Sheridan--pieced by Angie!  Angie likes paper piecing, but usually cuts and presses for her mother to do the piecing.  More quilts for Savannah's, and Porter's  and Lily's teachers.  










 A quilt for the new Mayor who was the Bishop in her church--representing Sand and Sea, and Working Together.



And another for his granddaughter, Savannah Dawn (Noah's ark).


They won the Circle of 9's blocks. 
Angie paper-pieced the center block.  


  
For a great-nephew, born in March/April.  


This one is an extra quilt, not yet spoken for.




Mystery quilt blocks were shown in two color ways.


Jeri had two quilts

This is one she's hand-quilting.


Leslie Lester went to Amish country to buy some beautiful quilts.  She managed to find Emma, an 89-year-old quilter whose home was where she grew up.  (The red and white block) was a copy of her wedding quilt.  She was married at 18.  She and her family made the quilts that Leslie bought--A double wedding ring for her kitchen, and a star for her mother who watched her children so they could go on the trip.








Joyce showed a cute Halloween cross-stitch of a cute little guy standing in a pumpkin!  There were 15 pages of instructions, 30 colors of thread--11 different shades of orange.

 

Carol showed her first attempt at free motion quilting!!!!!!!!!  Oh, to be so talented!  It's from a pattern, but the black horse looks like her horses

Show and Tell


Carol made this beautiful wall quilt from a picture she took.


The detail is amazing! 


Here's her wonderful mystery quilt.


Sue shared his darling basket that her daughter made.



And this fun bag that she's working on crocheted out of  1 inch strips of fabric. It's really sturdy and can hold books and as a bonus it's a great way to use fabric that you don't like anymore and it looks cute in the bag.



This is Joyce's Mystery Quilt again to see how it can be put together.


She started a wedding quilt with this cute cat block.  Can you see the mouse in the corner?



there it is!  So darling!


Chiska's started on some cathedral windows



Jeri just got back from a fantastic cruise to Alaska and shared
 some of her treasures and adventures with us.
