September 2012 Quilt Club

 We started quilt club with another fun show and tell.  Here is Peggy's quilt top she made for her mother in law in her MIL's favorite fall like colors.
 Another quilt top Peggy completed-a spider web.  I found a tutorial for this pattern.  Peggy said it was an easy quilt to make-the best kind-it just looks complicated.  This is in Christmas prints.
 Peggy's third show and tell entry!  This is a mystery quilt by Alycia and Craftsy for Quilts of Valor.
 And finally Peggy finished the Tree's Up! Lights On! quilt that we did as a club.  We are thinking that we would like to make this quilt again.
Rhonda has been busy quilting some of Cathy's tops that we saw last month.  Here is the Arrowhead quilt ready to be trimmed and bound.

 This is a Chevron baby quilt that I sewed while on vacation this month.  It is quilted and ready to be bound.
 Sue finished the amazing art quilt for Jesse and Audra's wedding.  See last month's blog for some close up pictures of the talented work in this quilt.
 Linda's grandson Bronson helped her quilt at club today and helped to display her show and tell-more of the Hoito bags she is making as gifts.
 Here is a block Rhonda was playing with to use up some of those scraps.  Great idea for another fun quilt.
You can get a peak at Rhonda crocheting slippers here.  I was taking a picture of the dessert.  I should have taken the picture of Rhonda to share too-sorry Rhonda.  Rhonda made chicken corn soup and sopapilla for us.  I can attest that the soup was delicious and everyone else said the cake was too-yum!
We also had cucumber dip/crackers, sweet bologna, and apples with caramel sauce.

Peggy made a cucumber dip with Greek Yogurt.  I will add the recipe here when she shares it with us.  This was really good too.

1 medium cucumber seeded and diced
1 medium tomato seeded and diced
1 container of plain yogurt (I used greek yogurt)
3 scallions diced
1 packet of Italian dressing (dry)
1 tbsp lemon juice
can be eaten with crackers or fresh veggies  

Finally here are the babushkas that we made for cancer patients.  Deb will distribute them to people that she knows who have lost their hair after chemo/radiation treatments.   That looks like a pretty good variety for them to choose from.

We talked about our Christmas get together and we decided to combine that with some fabric shopping in Lancaster.  We will be going to Shady Maple on the 8th of December and then on to Obie's, Good's, Sauder's and Weaver's!    

Next month we will be getting together on the 20th.  One project that we may work on is a seasonal table topper.  See everyone next time!
