January 2017

Happy New Year!  

How nice it was to get together with quilting friends again after the long holiday break!  Unfortunately it was a small group today.  We missed the rest of you.  Rhonda, Pam, Deb and Cathy got together today.  We worked on various projects.  Deb finished a top that she will be putting a scalloped border on, Pam and Cathy were working on their mystery quilts and Rhonda was working on memory quilts.

This is Rhonda's mystery quilt, ready to be quilted.  All the scrappy fabrics just make it twinkle.

 This is a 60th birthday quilt Rhonda made for herself.  There are 60 different mini blocks in this quilt.

This is a pattern that Rhonda got from Connecting Threads.  She used all of her own fabrics from her stash for this.  This simple quilt is pretty complicated to keep the colors all in the correct place.  I just love this.
 I made this baby quilt from a kit I bought years ago in Gettysburg.  It was for a larger quilt and I used less blocks to make this.
 This is my medallion quilt so far.  I have the last border to put on.  I am trying to figure out how I want to do that one.  I may cheat a little bit.
 There isn't a source for prequilted team fabric, so Rhonda is quilting some for her friend Doris.

 The quilt club made these snowmen quilts a while ago and Rhonda bought carrot button noses to finish her quilt.  How cute is this?
This is a close up of the buttons noses.  Even the eyes and other buttons are adorable.
Patty sent in some pictures of quilts she has been working on.  She was unable to be with us today, so thanks for giving us a peek into what you have been up to.

This is a flannel baby quilt.
Patty's mystery quilt.  Her floral purple really comes to life in this quilt.
 This looks like a block of the month.   Nice way to learn new blocks and techniques.

Rhonda made a delicious Toscana soup with potatoes and sausage.  We also had a fruit tart, ham and cheese sandwiches, sweet potato hummus and pita chips.

Next month we will be getting together on the 25th.  Rhonda mentioned working on Christmas projects just for you-ones you have wanted to make and didn't have time or ones that are in the unfinished pile.

Hope to see everyone in February!
