October 2016 Workshop

We enjoyed a wonderful workshop on Saturday, Oct 23rd.  Everyone was so excited to create their own version of Jean's Braided Star quilt, made with the binding tool.

Jean has made many versions of this quilt. On saturday she was working on the christmas version.  She also brought in the top of one made with autumn fabrics for fall.  It used a print as the background fabric, which displayed a nice change to the design.

Here is Jean's christmas version

and here is Beth's verson

We had a couple visitors Saturday, Valerie and  Jan M.  

here are the photos of all the gals at work:

See you next month!

October 2016 Meeting

We don't have a post for September because  I lost the pics on my camera.  There were alot of pics, too!  We also did not have a workshop in September,   so  we'll just have to celebrate October.

There was not much show n tell this month.  I made a bundle of autumn pieces for the house, but since I had so much to carry in anyway, I decided not to drag my quilting.

Lesa did share her new top ................  cleverly created from - no pattern of course.

Jan M.  presented a program on  a quick, one-step blanket.  (I forgot it's name)

and here is our charity quilts this month.  One is from me and all the rest are by Joyce.
here are different angle shots of the same pile of quilts.

That's it for October's meeting.  See you next month.
