May Meeting Show and Tell

We had a great meeting with Carol and Valerie demonstrating quilt-as-you-go techniques.  Next month is hand embellishment with Lyn - there will be a requirements list in your newsletter.  And now, here are some photos of May's show and tell.  

Sue made this lovely bright quilt top for Quilts for Kids.

Terri's flowers are dimensional on this wall hanging.

Terri has been busy and finished her hand-painted silk organza sampler that was started in a class with Jeanette De Nicolis Meyer.

Ingrid took the ideas of last month's machine embellishment class and made this neat little underwater scene complete with fuzzy anemones. 

Margaret confessed that she can't throw anything away...but who would want to when you can make these  gorgeous little postcards with your leftover threads?

Margaret likes working in mini size - these wonky houses were just sweet!

A close up for you.

Suzanne finished this for her daughter.  It's backed with flannelette and was quilted on her new quilting frame.

Margaret made this for her 18th great grandchild!!

Above are photos to show you the two floor mat quilts that so many people helped Imogen put together before her hurried trip to the UK.  She wanted to thank everyone who helped with providing "I Spy" fabric, cutting out, layering, quilting etc - it really wouldn't have been possible to get them done without so many wonderful friends.  She also would like to thank those other friends who, she knows, would only have been too willing to help as well if they had only known that the need was there.  Special thanks to Valerie, Shannon, Suzanne, Charlotte, Monica and Steph B.  Imogen knows they will be thanked again by the recipients in the UK.

See you all in June.
