August Show and Tell

With this years UFO Challenge we've been seeing a lot of progress from members' sewing rooms. Kitty brought in three gorgeous finished quilts to show.

Sandra talked about her doll that is traveling with the Hoffman Challenge and showed us the fabrics for the next year.

Anita made this quilt as a wedding gift and her husband dyed some of the fabrics.

 Sue just keeps churning them out, bringing in two more this month. How does she do it?

Jolene brought in a quilt and a Christmas table runner.

Vicki is sewing for Comfort Quilts.

Elizabeth has also been busy, bringing in three of her own quilts. The first quilt is the finish of the demo she did for us last month.

Dee shared a panel quilt as well as a beautiful quilt that she started in a Karen Stone workshop. We all had to get a close up look at this one -- we especially had to see her creative use of the border print.

And Marilyn shared this UFO that was a group of blocks that she won. The block that she entered the drawing with is on the back.

August General Meeting

This month we had Joan Derylak present a lecturer on Figure Flattering Quiltware. Here are a few of her wonderful jackets and vests. Joan also gave us a workshop on fitting and constructing a jacket.

 Here's Jean, one of our program chairs, with Joan.

And of course Marilyn and Dorothy were happy for some shopping opportunities.
