October 2015

We had another fun, relaxing day at quilt club.  I think the only one who did any real work was Sue, who put the names on the faux fur for Sheree's and my Christmas stockings.  I think she even made some progress on the make and take Rhonda had for us to do.  I messed up in cutting mine, so I will have to try making mine at home, if I find the time.  Rhonda cut another one out and will have that finished soon.  Addendum-I got an email and it looks like Rhonda had hers finished 15 minutes after we left!   Down below is a picture of her finished one.

This is Rhonda's Periwinkle type quilt made with Downton Abby prints.  We all fawned over this.  A beautiful interpretation of this quilt.  

Cathy has some show and tells this month.  This is a table runner for a shower gift.  Front...
 and back.
 And a Christmas table runner for her DIL, I think.  Front....
 and back
 This is the tumbler quilt Cathy made for her neighbor who is battling cancer.  Front....
 and back.
And a baby quilt for a great nephew?  Front....
and back.
 Patty made this baby quilt with fabric Cathy had.  I am going to finish it and give it to AJ.  Thanks Patty!
 Patty's chevron quilt is finished!  Very nice!
 This is Peggy's round robins so far.  She gave us templates and directions for her round of the quilt.  Two different sizes of stars will be appliqued on a 5 1/2-6 1/2 inch neutral border.  These are all so different with the same pattern.  This is a fun project for us.

This is a MSQ pattern that Peggy made for her husband's coworker.  The color combination is very pretty.
 Here are some of the crochet projects Peggy has made recently.  I think she will have some happy present openers on Christmas!
 This is my Grand Illusion.  I finally finished it in time to start the next mystery quilt in November.
 Sue made this creative memory quilt out of shirts and jeans.  Great job Sue!
 Peggy is retiring!  Congratulations.  We had a little celebration party for her.
 This is the make and take project.  Rhonda used some really great fabric in hers.  It looks like it is hand painted linen.  I think she said she bought this in New Mexico?
Rhonda's second market bag.  I love the way this turned out too!

We had barbeque, pasta salads, Peggy's Kielbasa dish and cake to eat.  Peggy's yummy kielbasa was made with the kielbasa, brown mustard and brown sugar cooked in the crock pot.

Next month there will be no official meeting, but if you want to sew Rhonda graciously will have her house opened to you November 28th..

December 5th we will have our traditional winter shop hop in Lancaster.  Details to follow.
