February’s Regular Meeting Happenings

     There was a lot to see today at the regular meeting to inspire creativity.  I wish I had photos of them ALL to show here, but I only have a fraction of them.   My camera lens is slow to respond which caused me to miss some.  A few were blurry and not worth saving.  Some I did not have a good view.  Hope you enjoy the ones I did get.

 For Monthly Challenge of “oxymoron”
“Draw a Blank” by Bev

“Good Garbage” by Elizabeth

“Earth Angel” by Judy

            “The beginning of the end” by Carol  (photo too blurry) She stitched an endless ribbon using Libby Lehman’s technique.
 Many got a big kick out of Karen’s block which had a large hairy brown mustache representing “My Stash” ( sorry no photo)

 For Show and Tell
We had a great variety.  Some art quilts, wall hangings, large and small bed quilts. 

                                                    Above is the back of Jan's 2 sided quilt.
                                                                  Here is the front.
 Here is the QSC scholarship quilt.  You can find out more here:  http://www.quiltersofsc.org/

One was unfinished but several had finally finished UFOs.

Here is one child’s charity quilt.


For our program Joni Feddersen walked us through steps to create a Zentangle art piece.  After her demo and instructions while we were working, she played some relaxing music.  Many of us created our first zentangle. 
Here is mine. 

Here are the groups examples.

Fun February Day Bee Meeting

     We had a great crowd for Day Bee meeting today and lots of fun. Lari passed out step 7 for those who are participating the the current mystery quilt. About 18 signed up to go next month on the road trip to The White House  ( http://www.thewhitehousesc.com/ ). 

 Many members brought handwork projects to work on.  

Several brought quilt projects for show and tell.

 Dorothy pieced a hexagon lap quilt from 2 ½” squares from all over the world she received in an exchange.  On the back she included the little squares people sent to denote where they were from. 

Day Bee Plans

February Day Bee is Feb. 14 th   at 9:30 AM.    Day Bee will meet at Rosina's home 
Please  let her know you are coming. 

Day Bee for March is now going to be a road trip to The White House,
in Heath Springs.  Check it out here.  http://www.thewhitehousesc.com/   

This trip is back by popular demand.  The group will leave the church at 9:30 on 3/13/12  and go The White House to shop and have a wonderful lunch (Lasagna) for only $10.00 and return to Columbia by mid-afternoon.  All those interested need to sign up with Jan and pay at the
next guild meeting so we can give an accurate head count for lunch by March 7th.
