January 2014

Our first quilt club of the year.  Last time we got together was in November and today is February 1st.  Linda and Peggy couldn't make it this month due to illness.  Feel better soon you two.

I didn't get any action shots this month.  Sue brought a make and take project that we worked on before eating.  Our picture of that project is at the end of this post.  We had fun with it and learned a clever new technique on how to turn projects right side out.

We had brunch again-egg and sausage casserole, potato casserole, another breakfast casserole-sorry but I can't remember what that was, fresh fruit and sopapilla.  Yum!

Cathy was working on a string quilt with kitty prints.  It will be adorable when finished.  Rhonda was piecing triangles together from a leader/ender project.  

Here are the show and tells for the month.  Cathy and I had already given away our projects for Christmas presents, so we didn't have them to share.  Rhonda has been busy and has lots of pretty projects to show.

This is the back of Linda's quilt with Rhonda's new cloverleaf panto.  So pretty!

This is the front of Linda's quilt.  She made this version of the disappearing 4 patch using the black and white fabric from Kinley's bumper pad.  Linda has been very clever at recycling fabric.

This is one of Rhonda's quilts-the summer quilt from the four seasons series.  There is a lot of applique on this one.

Here is Rhonda's Blue Ridge Beauty quilt.  See the splashes of red?  This is a red quilt.  Hahahaha.
 Another view-what a beautiful quilt.

 And the back where the quilting shows up a little better.

This is a wall hanging Rhonda quilted for the cabin.  The quilting adds a lot of interest to it.

This is Rhonda's Celtic Solstice quilt.

And this is my Celtic Solstice quilt.  I think they look the same but still quite different.  It is interesting to see how just the variations in fabrics changes them.

This is the back of mine.  I made 1 1/2 time the number of blocks that the smaller quilt took and the number was almost perfect for me.  My quilt is 9 blocks square.  BH's large was 11 square and I think the small one was 7 square.  The four  blocks I had left over I used on the back.

Sue made a quilt for the newest grand baby.  She bound and backed it with minky.  It was quilted on her Featherweight.  

And here is what you have all been waiting for!  Ta Da!  Our make and takes.  Vests for our wine bottles!  Aren't they cute?  (I see a soda bottle and a wine glass there too!)  Next meeting is March 1.  Hope to see everyone there!
