April Show and Tell

 Here is a recap of Show & Tell from the April meeting.

 Nancy Aneyci showed her star quilt using Barbara Barber's technique for floating star points.

Two more from Nancy: Landscape from a Pat Bruno class and a sweet baby quilt.

 Betsey Winser showed her Pinwheels & Posies baby quilt.

 Margaret Sheehan showed a quilt she made for her sister's birthday.

 Barbara Chojnacki created this piece called Found Objects using bits pulled from the trash at Quilts & More. Have you been hanging out with Mary Cline?

 Three more from Barbara: A table runner made from Ways & Means winnings, hand-pieced and hand-quilted tumblers made on Super Bowl Sunday, and paper-pieced Baby Birds of Bali.

 Sue Chamberlain showed her completed Easy Street top from a recent Bonnie Hunter mystery.

Tora Sterregaard showed two quilts that were recently on display at the Slater Hall Gallery at Norwich Free Academy. Her quilts were too big for the allowed display space, so she folded them using napkin folding techniques and added a few basting stitches to create sculptural fiber art!

Sue Victoria showed a baby quilt for her seventh great grandchild!

Barbara Barber described this painted piece as the Quilt from Hell. Inspired by a newspaper photo of Wilcox Park, she accepted suggestions from friends at the March meeting to add bits of color and personal memories.

 Tina Craig showed several small pieces completed since the last meeting: A selvage spiderweb quilt from the getaway weekend, a mini low volume quilt, Low Volume/Bright Hopes, and a mini friendship star that will be included in the silent auction at the quilt show in October.

 Tina also showed a Batik Arrowhead quilt from a Craftsy class with Anita Grossman Solomon that will be a gift for a friend.

Tina showed a nine patch top created with nine patch blocks gathered from a Flickr swap. This was the inspiration for the Ninnie Nines swap that will begin in May.
