March show and share pictures

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. 
Sarah and Gabrielle also put together two amazingly generous baskets of goodies and swag from QuiltCon, won by Cathy and Ursula!

 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. 
And Stacie's triangles are now a quilt top hanging as a shop sample at Kaleidoscope Quilt Co.

Bryan showing the fabulous fox pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.

Bryan's Cotton and Steel quilt.

And the super fabulous back.
