June 2011 Quilt Club

I forgot my camera-didn't even think about it actually.  Cathy had hers, but I don't think she took any pictures.  This will be a pretty plain post.

We finished up the tops to the three charity quilts we are making.  Rhonda and I will be quilting them and hopefully all three will be finished before the end of summer.

Rhonda had a mystery project for us to make.  Here is mine.  These bags were quick to make and the jumbo rickrack made a cute bag even cuter.  We learned a new technique for adding zippers to bags that I will want to try to master on my next bag.

Peggy was unable to join us because she was in the process of adding twins to her family.  I am sure we will get more details and perhaps pictures later.

Rhonda, Cathy, Linda, Sue, Deb and Pam were all present for quilt club.  We had the usual array of good food.   Rhonda provided Sechrist hot dogs cooked on the grill.  They were delish!  We had macaroni salad, chips and dip, fruit and dip, and a wonderful pumpkin pudding.

Next month we decided that we will go to The Quilt Odyssey in Hershey for our club meeting.

May 7th Quilt Club at Pam's

Hello, here is our first posting to our new blog.   This is the first time in months that the entire group has been able to be together.  What an great time we all had!

This is Rhonda, our mentor.  If not for Rhonda many of us would not be quilters.  Thanks Rhonda!  What a wonderful world of fabric and friends we have joined.

We had a few show and tells today.  Sue brought her French fabric quilt that she is making for a friend.

Peggy  brought her Disappearing 9 Patch lap quilt she made for her mother-in-law.

We were an industrious group today.  Deb was working on her hand pieced hexagon quilt.

 Linda and Cathy working on their projects.

Sheree and Peggy working on their projects.

Rhonda managed out charity projects as well as cutting and sewing.

We had our share of ripping as well as sewing.  Here is Linda with her rows sewn together that weren't supposed to be sewn together.

And Pam's boo-boo that was more of a hat than a quilt block.

Here are the blocks as we sewed them  into rows and organized them on the quilting frame.

Here is one of the quilts we are making for our charities on the design wall.  We are making three of these scrappy red, white and blue quilts.
And of course we had food. We had broasted chicken, salad, a veggie tray with dip, deviled eggs, quilt club dip with crackers, nuts and chocolate (a quilting staple!) ice tea and cherry dessert.  

Our next quilt club will be June 25th.  See you then.
