November 2017

Our program this month was on Row by Row quilting. Some of the samples used to talk about themes, colors, etc. are below.  Pinterest is a great tool for that!

For those who wanted to have the website to turn handwritten notes into tea towels :
Some new comfort quilts have been completed. Three adult and one baby quilt were donated at this meeting

Our Show and Tell opened with display of the Ella Bags made at the workshop. Everyone enjoyed this relaxed day and finished their projects with time to work on a few other things.

Christa made four of these. these ones are for her sister. the fabric came from robes from the priest and other items when a church in Germany closed. the others she made from green fabrics have already been sent as gifts. 

Leesa made this as a Christmas gift for her Grandson Owen. It is called Building Blocks and was quilted by Joan Gamble. She also made a grow chart for "O", a tooth fairy pillow for her granddaughter and a cosmetic bag.  Its been a productive month for Leesa!

Linda made several more hangings: a cardinal, Christmas Tree lights, the "Funky Christmas Tree and the "Perky Poinsettia"

Debbi was given a chocolate box a from a yard sale by a lady and it had the pattern called Endless Stairs and some fabric. At the Woodstock retreat she did this quilt. some of the blocks had been completed before. some of the hand sewn blocks were incorporated into the quilt.

Debby made several table toppers with the triangle ruler. maybe we will be able to talk her into a workshop on these toppers!

Andrea had some Halloween fabrics from a daughters 14th birthday and saved them. She recently got more fabrics at the Fredericton Guild meeting and decided to do this Candy corn Halloween quilt for herself.
Margie did this for her son-in-laws Christmas gift. There is a lot of applique in those four-wheelers! It was backed in minky and quilted by Joan Gamble.

When Joyce's mom passed away they had saved some material. Her mom loved tea and they calculated she had consumed over 100,000 cups in her days. She mad this beautiful wall hanging for her sister from some of the material. The red work girl on the bottom corner is holding a tea cup.

Ron and Andrea had both quilted a red work quilt. Andreas was completed in April and displayed so Ron quilted his and did some thread painting. After the quilt show Ron had a call for a quilt the same as he had created pattern and shown. While he was not able to get the exact fabrics he was able to buy a few jelly rolls on line and merged the Bali pops and other fabrics together for a close replica. Well done!
