Carol showed us some blocks that she's made her gorgeous Kinderfolk Sampler Quilt 
(click here for link to quilt kit--some of you asked about it)

Her Embroidery is wonderful!
(She said the heart block below almost pushed her over the edge.)

They're so beautiful!

Mary's working on hand quilting this gorgeous Ulu (which means Breadfruit) Quilt

Chiska finished the little wall hanging quilt.  Each 12 patch is represents a theme.

And she hand quilted this one for her husband.  The pattern is Happy Quilting's Starburst.  If you want the pattern all together she's got them for sale here.  (Scroll down to find Starburst).  She also did a quilt along that has everything in separate posts (Free!) on this page.  (Again scroll down until you find Starburst and then she has links to the quilt along posts underneath it.   She has quite a few quilt alongs on this page so it's fun to look through, especially if you're looking for a pattern.) 

Cami brought these wonderful hexigon flower garden flowers.

She's got a basket full!

Kathy shared some beautiful things that she got from her Aunt Olga
This beautifully tatted baby bonnet.

These wonderful quilt blocks--there was a lot of speculation as to what time they were from.

Sue has been tatting this amazing alter cloth

Here she's showing us how it comes together.

She also shared a tip that when tatting you should use tatting thread, not crochet cotton.  A brand name is Cordonnet (I checked the spelling for those of you wondering).  This thread is a 6 strand thread that is plyed two ways to make it so it doesn't bunch up.

Joyce finished her second baby blanket (since December)
Here's the front--can you see the panda's?  The animals in it are so cute!

It's a darling whole cloth quilt.  Here is the back.

Next month Joyce will do a Press N Seal marking demonstraton.
Note that the library quilt show is scheduled for April 30.

We have a few things on the schedule.  I will post them on the bottom of the page today.

Hello from the other side of a time offline!

Here are a few pictures from December and January:

In December:

 Carol shared this amazing Noah's Ark Quilt.

Leslie dyed this awesome scarf!

In January:

Joyce shared her lovely Teapot Quilt (there's teacups too!)

Chiska showed off her Christmas gift of a Salwar Kameez that her Mom altered for her.

Jeri's beautiful Braid Quilt finished!

That's all I have for show and tell.

We're meeting again on February 24th at 7 p.m. at Jeri's.
We had so much fun visiting in January that we didn't do any planning so come with your ideas for programs for this year.  Thanks again for your patience!
