What have our members been up to this summer?
Jamie is new to paper piecing, but made two paper pieced blocks. She also created several microwave bowls made some out of a layer cake. She made several table runners and says she still needs to work on binding technique!
Cindy made two paper pieced blocks for the guild sew-along - she likes how the colors on one turned out, but not other other one.
Mary Ellen share the second of 3 memory quilts for a family that had parents that died. The quilts are made out of the parents' old clothes – some of the cotton with spandex was challenging to work with!
Pat, Donna and Debra each made paper pieced blocks for the guild sew-along. Debra is pictured here with her block.
Karen showed a wallhanging of lotus flower for minister that is leaving to go to another church. She also made a baby quilt – for her grandson that will be born on Monday! She told us she's going to miss the July meeting because she’s going to be taking care of the baby.
Nancy showed a customer quilt because it is beautiful and unusual. What you can't see in the picture is that the black fabrics are a variety of tone-on-tone prints that adds lovely detail.
Sarah (Nancy’s friend) showed a quilt she made from a Craftsy pattern. There was a mistake in the pattern, so she told the story of how she had to call the company to resolve the issue. Her quilt still has a "mistake" in it, but we couldn't tell!
Members are reminded to bring their fundraising ideas and paper pieced blocks to the next meeting.
