April General Meeting -- Hexies

For our April program we focused on English paper pieced hexes. Various guild members, led by Jean showed off their expertise and creativity with a trunk show. Some were finished projects, some were works in progress, but all of them were unique and beautiful.

Clara started us off with this beauty that she won a blue ribbon for at the state fair.

Dorothy had quite a few items to share, including these three works in progress. The second is a fussy cut Lucy Boston and the third, a beautifully done millefiori quilt. Dorothy is definitely not afraid of a challenge.

This is me (Lari) showing one of my long term projects using EPP and hand appliqué.

Bev brought in these two finished quilts and a WIP that uses only rose fabrics for the hexagons. It is one of my favorites.

Ellen changed the pace with these two precious little pieces. . .

. . . while Sandra shared this spontaneous, ever growing piece of fun.

This was Dee's amazing Millefiori WIP which I really fell in love with. I definitely will start one of these one day. She was inspired by Willyne Hammerstein's book, Millefiori Quilts that's put out by the folks at Quiltmania. After the trunk show there were demos, and Dee was kind enough to show us how she makes her units.

JoAnn brought in these lively quilts, all of which had beautiful colors to enjoy.

Then Anita shared these quilts which were just as colorful and lovely.

And then finally Jean, who always has a hexagon quilt in progress, shared these three soft and sweet beauties.

This was one of my favorite programs this year. It's always nice to see all the talent in this guild. Thank you to all the ladies for bringing in their quilts, giving demos and inspiring all of us to get busy with some hexies.
