Please enjoy the photos from our March meeting.
|Our February block lotto, won by Bonnie-Lynne. |
This was the very first block she ever made!
|Our new block for the lotto. Instructions HERE.|
|Definitely time for a new room - April meeting is at |
Scout Hall, 505 Marigold Ave.
PS don't tell the fire marshall but we had 83 people!!
|Our amazing quilts for KEYS. Thanks to EVERYONE who helped sew these in March, and please think about quilting one for us. Email us if you're interested.|
|Our library expanded and grew.|
|We have close to 40 titles now!|
|l-r: Marianne, Jo-Anne, Sarah, and Gabrielle told us a bit about going to QuiltCon in February.|
And then show and share!
|Nicole's future cushion cover from the recent Katie Pedersen workshop (elongated triangles) hosted by the Victoria Quilter's Guild.|
|New member Lois J. and her fast zig zag (it's done with a rail fence type block!).|
|Lois showing another quilt.|
|Sarah's piece from her Joanne Masko class at QuiltCon. Apparently it's an all new, fast way to do cathedral windows by machine.|
|And Sarah's "marriage quilt" for somewhat recently married friends. Sarah says she's done on HSTs for a long while.|
|The creatively piece back for the above quilt.|
|Sharon V. showed a mystery quilt along that she didn't like very much so she put a great backing on it and went to town on the quilting.|
|And Sharon showing a piece from a class using layered dyed cheesecloth. |
Click on it to see it bigger if you can.
|Laura's adorable table runner with fabric that is not to her usual taste but so cheerful she bought it anyway.|
|A practice piece. Looking forward to seeing all that quilting Laura!|
|And another piece to practice quilting on. Check out the rail fence type block to make the zig zag!|
|Ruth's dragonfly from the Katie Pedersen slice and insert class at the VQG.|
|And an older piece Ruth brought to share. Love the polka dots and circles!|
|Susan also took the slice and insert class with Katie and FINISHED her quilt already!|
|Jennifer W.'s adorable elephants.|
|Lois T. and the quilt she finally made to use a beloved fabric (of which there wasn't very much!)|
|And the back, showing a lovely spiral.|
|Lana's all solids HST quilt. Lana is still loving the HSTs.|
|Barb H. is that you?|
|And we think this is also Barb H.'s fabulous baby quilt.|
|This is Jeanne and her quilt for her daughter's roommate, a rower who loves water. Good reason to use batiks!|
|Another lovely quilt by Jeanne.|
|Check out the back, and the quilting on it!|
|Jo-Anne also took the elongated triangles workshop - this will be a bed runner for her bed.|
|Marianne took the triangles and went in her own fabulous direction.|
|Jacquie hiding behind her triangles.|
|Bryan showing the fabulous fox pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.|
