July Show and Tell

We had a good turnout for show and tell this month. Looks like the hot summer months have not slowed down some of us. Vicki starts us out with this cute square arrangement. 

Marilyn shared this wonderful red, white and blue pinwheel quilt.

Jean has finished her triangle/diamond quilt. Love the combination of blues in this quilt.

Judy not only made a t-shirt quilt but made a pillowcase to match! We love that extra touch! She also brought in a very modern looking rectangles and squares quilt.

I love the flowers on this pretty quilt from Elizabeth.

Deb is the first one I've seen finish her quilt from our Susan Edmonson workshop. She has mixed wool appliqué with beautiful Kaffe Fassett fabrics to make this quilt a real treasure.

Tambra shared this wonderful quilt which looks like christmas ornaments to me. She made this quilt after taking a class from Anita at QSC's fall retreat at White Oak.

Kitty is very much into making purses these days. She amazed us by bringing in six of them to share -- here are three for you to see.

July General Meeting

We had great fun during our Christmas in July program.  Five members were gracious enough to give demos on making handmade Christmas ornaments.

Linda whipstitched pieces together for this elegant beauty while Lynne shared some of her paper pieced  creations.

Joan used folded fabric and trim for these wonderful ornaments and Sandra had a new take on Santa.

Our tireless Anita shared this woven hearts ornament/basket that could be used not just for Christmas but for Valentines Day or any number of things.

After the meeting Anita led our bravest members in a new Christmas challenge. The idea was to exchange names and fabrics, and by Christmas time have a beautiful Christmas item for the name that you chose. Can't wait to see what our members come up with.
