Sept. 2013 II

Quilt club part II.  Club met again Sept. 28th.  

We had a lot of show and tells.
Peggy is up first.
 Peggy's granddaughter, Gabby, was our special guest. She brought her very first quilt that she pieced, machine quilted and bound. She did an awesome job. Keep up the good work Gabby.

 Peggy's Christmas Tree Table Runner with matching Christmas Tree napkins.
 Peggy's Fall Table Runner
 Peggy took the Bonnie Hunter challenge with her leader and ender spools quilt.
 Cathy's very first quilt project finished.

 Twin patriotic quilt for Cathy's sister-in-law. There are two the same. Her sister-in-law will just love them.
 Baby Quilt
 Sea turtles quilt top for Cathy's extra bedroom that the grandchildren use
 Flannel quilt top for Cathy's granddaughter
 Although Linda wasn't at quilt club. We showed her quilt for her granddaughter, Kinley. Rhonda machine quilted it with a cute dolphin panto. It turned out really nice.
 Rhonda is starting her Christmas presents. Straight to the point pattern. Need to get the borders on and then quilt it.
 Rhonda's second quilt top for a Christmas present. This was a group project "Jelly Roll race". It took about 1 1/2 hour to sew together. It was fun, quick and easy. Still needs the border.
 Sue finally had a free Saturday to spend with us. She spent her summer camping. She did have one show and Tell. It is a bed runner for a dear friend in a nursing home. He is transferring homes from Delaware to Pennsylvania to be closer to family and friends. The orange blocks are for signatures from the Delaware nursing home. Sue has to get the binding finished by 5 am Sunday so she can leave it for them to sign. She works great under pressure.

Sept. 2013

We had two club meetings this month.

  The first meeting was on the 20th.  Here is our show and tell first.  

This is Bonnie Hunter's pineapple blossom that I made for an ex-coworker who has breast cancer.  I really love this quilt.  It is not as complicated to make as it looks.

 These are the quilt tops that Linda made for her grand kids.  The nautical panels came from Florida.
This is one of Deb's quilts that Rhonda just quilted for her.  Very pretty, calming colors.
Rhonda made another bag-I fogot the name of it??? She added inside pockets and changed the handles.  Really pretty fabric.

Rhonda did some freehand quilting on her baby quilt.  Great job.  

Rhonda took scraps and made this cute quilt.  I think it's going to be a baby quilt.

We worked on the Jelly Roll Race quilt.  Without problems it took about an hour and a half to make the top.  Careful selection of fabric made some really cute quilt tops.
