As always, what a talented bunch of folk you are!

Marg made this super wallet in the workshop with Jill Spyker.

Susan won the block lotto in November. Quilted by Jennifer Watson.

A quick look at the back.

Susan also made this quilt using the charms from the peach/lime/turquoise charm swap last fall. 

Anne co-ordinated the swap with Susan and this is her quilt.

 Anne made this super cute animal friends quilt. Pattern from HERE.

Pat's satellite group pools their blocks for the lotto together; she won her group's batch and made this quilt!

Audrey took the Rebecca Bryan workshop and finished her triangle quilt.
 She quilted it using quilt as you go; this is the back.

Sharon is a quilting machine! Here's a baby quilt for a co-worker's baby.

Dawn made this sweet quilt for another baby.

 Mary made this one from "Sunday Morning Quilts"
 And the back.

 Esther made this for her son who works for Ableton Music. This is their logo.

Jay made this hexie mini as a name tag to wear around the IQF Chicago show where her millefiori quilt was juried into the show.

 Kate also made this fantastic improv quilt. 

This is why we have quilt friends! Darlene made her wallet at the Jill Spyker workshop which happened just a couple of days after her car was stolen. Very upsetting of course but sewing for the day with friends who love fabric helped Darlene feel better. She shared the whole story at guild meeting and got quite a few hugs at the break afterwards!

 Stacie and her Canadian flag pillow.

 And HER wallet from the Jill Spyker workshop.

 And something rainbow for another swap thing.

The second half of the meeting was Quilt Jeopardy! which was so much fun for everyone.

Kelly won the wonky star block lotto!
