Quilters Gallery Show and Tell

    For the March general meeting the Quilters Gallery, AKA "The Pizza Girls", presented "Rulermania," which was a trunk show of new quilts as well as tips for using specialty rulers that are on the market.   Many of us were inspired to add a new ruler or pattern to our collection as well as some beautiful fabric.
Following are photos of a wide variety of the quilt patterns they showed.  

 Simple squares

 Half square triangles

 Piecing the border as part of the row constructiion

Applique by machine

Using a border print

Log cabin

A Dresden plate variation

60 degree triangle pattern

Kaleidoscope variations

- even including the stack ‘n whack technique

Kite template with strings form the spiderweb 

8 pointed stars made using a giant diamond shape

and even a few curves.

This was only a part of what they brought to share.  It was lots of fun seeing everything and being inspired to make new quilts. 

March Day Bee Meeting

      We had a great Day Bee today at Dorothy's home.  There was a good crowd, good conversation, and snacks.  Several ladies worked on hand work as usual.  Bev and Jean enjoyed conversation while working.

Clara also did some stitching.

Jan showed off the result of a mystery quilt.

Dorothy showed this lovely hexagon quilt.

The April Day Bee will be at my home.  Members were asked to bring ideas for doing a block of the month for children's comfort quilts.
      Hope to see many of you then.
