Debbie Clark Workshop

Here are a few photos from our workshop with Debbie Clark, the watercolor quilt expert. The room was very quiet when I walked in since everyone was very focused on getting their pieces to blend just right. Here's Martha and Dee Dee working hard on their creations.

Looks like Elizabeth was a pro already at these kinds of quilts, since she had her own stash of organized squares. I have to admit, this really appealed to the little OCD voice inside my head. 

Here's Debbie giving Judy some helpful advice on her piece.

Jan and Kathy look like they're putting the finishing touches on their quilt tops.

Kitty and Lynne look very pleased with their projects, don't they?
                                                                                                

November Show and Tell

The Mystery Quilt is revealed! Here are participants displaying their quilt tops or WIP (works in progress). Quite a nice turnout and a fun block to play with. Thanks ladies.
                 
Deb amazed us all with this beautiful quilt. We all had to get up close to see how the blocks and colors worked together.

This looks like the top of Beverly's head. This quilt has a vintage feel to it. Elizabeth showed us this cute kids quilt.

Jeanne shared this striking traditional box quilt top while Sandra showed her interest in art quilts.

Jean and Rosina shared the spotlight with these two charity quilts.

And finally Vicki impressed us all with these two beauties and I believe the first may be a Bonnie Hunter pattern. Looks like Vicki is going through a green period.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

November General Meeting - Debbie Clark

In November we had the pleasure of hosting a program featuring Debbie Clark. With the help of helpful husband she showed us several of her wonderful watercolor themed quilts. They truly were inspirational and several of our members were lucky enough to take a watercolor quilt workshop with her after the meeting (see later blog entry). I was not one of these people but it did make me want to start planning one of my own for someday (we all have one of those lists, don't we?) Here are a few of her special quilts, and if you want to see more, check out her blog at http://stitchintherapy.blogspot.com/ Not only does she blog about watercolor quilts, but she has some nice tips and tutorials to share as well.

November Day Bee Show and Tell

Tuesday the sun came out and we had a beautiful day.  There was a good crowd at GCQ Day Bee.  About 15 Bee members participated in a block exchange.  Judy only needs to finish the binding. 

Beverly made her blocks into a King size bed runner. 

Bonney showed a zigzag quilt she made as a gift. 

Jean participated in Anita's Mystery and is almost finished. 

MaryLou  and Judy hosted for a wonderful morning of sharing. 
Day Bee does not meet in December because the guild holiday gathering will be on the regular Day Bee day.  All guild members are welcome.
