May Meeting 2013

 I'm sorry I'm a month behind with blog posts. Enjoy this recap of the May meeting.

Tora had several quilts and tops to show from the Outreach Committee.

Many thanks to everyone who has been working on these quilts, from piecing to binding!

 On to Show & Tell!

Ellie showed an original design that she made for her husband's birthday. She was a little concerned about the one triangle pointed in the wrong direction. No worries: Steve declared it to be a solar flare!

Pat made a sweet little mini with appliqued ginkgo leaves for an auction at NBQA. It is mounted on an artist canvas, painted to match. Pat also showed us her entry in the latest issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks.

Sue, far left, made giant size Anita's Arrowhead blocks from upholstery samples.

Nancy, holding Sue's quilt above, finished two more quilts from her collection of seaside fabrics.

Betsey showed a quilt she made from a magazine called Hexagon Bullseye.

She also made this lovely hand quilted mini.

Deloris, in purple,  finished this citrus flavored Star Struck quilt. 

She also completed this green quilt. One of them is a gift for her sister, but I can't remember which.

 The program at the May meeting was part two of Barbara W. Barber's trunk show. This month, Barbara showed some of her award-winning broderie perse quilts, including this one from the cover of her book, sadly out of print.

The Bra quilt. Humorous, thoughtful, historical.

Split Rock- one of my favorites.

After the program, twenty-six members participated in round one of the Ninnie Nines 9-patch swap. Each quilter made sixteen blocks to swap. We lined up around a long table, kept one block for ourselves, then dealt out the rest to the piles to our right. Everyone went home with sixteen new blocks!

I'll be back soon with an update from the June meeting.
